It was a star-studded night at the “Of Mice and Men” premiere on Broadway, and the shiniest of all the stars was Leighton Meester! The Gossip Girl beauty starred onstage alongside James Franco and Chris O’Dowd in the Depression Era tragedy, and looked absolutely stunning at the curtain call in a blue Versace gown.
Darlings, making an appearance on Broadway when you already have a thriving career on film and television is the sign of a true A-Lister (sadly, also of washed out former boy band members, but don’t even get me started on that). Leighton follows in the proud footsteps of such screen legends as Scarlett Johansson, Daniel Radcliffe, Tom Hanks, Rachel Weisz, Daniel Craig, Jude Law, Farrah Fawcett and countless others.
Moreover, Leighton is the only female in the cast, and plays a pivotal role as Curley’s flirtatious wife. Even in her dowdy onstage duds, she still looks as gorgeous as ever. Naturally, her performance earned rave reviews. I simply cannot wait to take in a Sunday matinee – my favorite “me time” activity.
So what do you think, dolls? Will you be making the trip to Broadway to see Leighton in (live) action while you can (through July 27)? You better get your tickets soon: A List talent starring in a play sells out Broadway tickets faster than Kate Middleton wearing a new designer sells out dresses.
