According to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Twitter, Betsy Wolfe will sing Guys and Dolls (presumably as Sarah Brown, but updates will follow) at 5PM October 12th at the United Palace of Cultural Arts, as part of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s monthly “Classic NYC Movies at the Palace” series. Additional performers include Steven Pasquale, Joshua Henry, Eden Espinosa and Christopher Jackson. The mini-concert will precede a showing of the 1955 film adaptation of Guys and Dolls.

Betsy will be singing “Fun” from Iowa (a new musical by Jenny Schwartz and Todd Almond, which will have its world premiere this spring at Playwrights Horizons) with Grace McLean, Jeremy Morse, and Amanda Savan.

Since Bullets Over Broadway's closing last month, Fuck Yeah, Betsy Wolfe! has received quite a few requests for a fan mail address for Betsy Wolfe not tied to the St. James Theatre. If you would like to write Betsy fan mail now, or any time that she is not in a production with its own mailing address, you can send your mail to Paradigm, the agency that represents her, at the following address:
Paradigm Agency N.Y.
360 Park Avenue South
New York, NY 10010-1716
Your fan mail will then be passed along to Betsy.
As with any fan mail request, if you wish to receive something in return (a signed photo, perhaps—though keep in mind that Betsy may not have photos readily at her disposal, so if you’d like something like that, it’s best for you to include the photo yourself), please ask politely, include a SASE, and wait patiently for a response. More information on requesting a response from Betsy is included in this post.
Again, Betsy is very kind about answering fan mail, but remember that she does have other obligations outside of writing a letter back! Any delay in/lack of response is not intended to offend.

Continuing in the vein of The Last Five Years news, following the movie’s screenings at the Toronto International Film Festival this coming Sunday and Monday, RADiUS will release the movie in theatres on February 14th, 2015. Betsy makes a cameo in the film as the former stripper.
The Last Five Years is a rare treat for fans of musicals who also fancy nonlinear narrative techniques. The Nevada Conservatory Theater presents the intimate romance of New Yorker twentysomethings Cathy, who remembers the story in reverse, and Jamie, who tells it from beginning to end. The two characters appear on stage together only once — in the middle of the play, at their wedding — leaving remaining scenes to deconstruct the traditional arc of falling in and out of love. The production features Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe, who starred in the 2013 off-Broadway revival of Jason Robert Brown’s musical.
