View Comments Ladies and gents, we have an important announcement: In case you haven’t heard, it’s Friday! That means it’s time to do this, this and this. And of course, it’s time for the Lessons of the Week. As usual, a ton of crazy stuff happened in the last seven days—check out what we learned below.Bradley Cooper Has a Big TrunkWe thought Cooper was starring in The Elephant Man, but apparently we were wrong. Lesli Margherita tweeted, “Lady asked me if I knew where ‘Bradley Cooper Elephant Show’ theater is. Gave directions & said I hope she gets 2 c his trunk.” Full trunk-al nudity?! This show has everything!Idina Menzel Likes Classy Daytime DatesNews flash, Fanzels—the If/Then star is ready to start dating! There’s only one problem: Her schedule doesn’t allow for dinner dates, and she doesn’t want to do any “slutty” dates after midnight. So she’s basically Cinderella with better shoes.Neverland Has Found Matthew MorrisonGlee’s Matthew Morrison is quitting school and flying into Finding Neverland alongside Kelsey Grammer and Laura Michelle Kelly. Yes, we know Jeremy Jordan would also have been great. But don’t worry, Neverland producer Harvey Weinstein is also behind The Last Five Years movie and Jordan’s definitely in that. See, you’re smiling!Hugh Jackman Is a Bloody Good ActorStarring on Broadway is a dangerous job. Hugh Jackman guts a real fish onstage in The River, and he’s accidentally cut himself not once, but twice—he even had to get five stitches! Bloody good show, Hugh, but we like you with all 10 fingers, OK?Alysha Umphress’ Annie Had BoobsTo play Annie, you need dimples, red hair and a killer belt voice. On the Town’s Alysha Umphress possesses these things in spades, but she also had something else when she played the adorable orphan: Boobs! Well, you know what they say…you’re never fully dressed without a training bra.NBC Can’t Handle the TruthIf there’s one thing we love, it’s yelling at the TV. If there’s another thing we love, it’s tweeting while yelling at the TV. So naturally, we’re psyched NBC might be doing a live broadcast of A Few Good Men. You want the telecast? You want the telecast? YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TELECAST!Wanna Be Like Nancy Opel? Schmooze.Honeymoon in Vegas star Nancy Opel has been around the Broadway block 13 times, so when she doles out advice, we listen. Her tips: Make as many connections as possible and compliment Stephen Sondheim whenever you can. Hey Steve, you’re awesome! Now can we be on Broadway?Duck Dynasty: The Musical Is a ThingWe’re running out of books and movies to turn into musicals, so it’s time to make reality TV shows sing and dance! After The X Factor tuner, the Robertson family is coming to the Vegas stage. What’s next, Shark Tank? Hoarders? My Strange Addiction? All of the above, please.Tracey Ullman’s In Love with a CowThe Band Wagon star Tracey Ullman has fallen head over heels for her bovine co-star in the Into the Woods movie, a real cow named Tug. She was so sweet, Ullman is forgoing burgers in her honor. Tracey, there are a lot more animals where that came from if you come back to Broadway.Audra McDonald Knows How to Boil EggsYahoo! Answers guru Audra McDonald sings the answers to all sorts of queries, but unless they’re about Broadway or her Westchester compound Eggfartopia, we’re never sure if we can trust her. Well, this week, we’re in luck! An egg question! Thanks, Audra, that’s eggggggsactly what we wanted to know. Eggggggcellent.
