Say Bonjour to the New JavertBegins May 12 at the Imperial TheatreIs there nothing better than an old favorite returning to their signature show? Well, maybe fresh-baked bread or a wicker basket full of puppies. Since neither is available, let’s go with the first option. We got a good one. The Broadway revival of Les Miz welcomes back Earl Carpenter—who replaces a Williamstown-bound Will Swenson—as Javert. Carpenter has played that role on and off since 1996. You’re in good, menacing hands. Click for tickets! Say Goodbye (Kinda) to Elaine PaigeIn movie theaters May 12The summer movie season is here, so the theaters will be inundated with superheroes, explosions, and some combination of the two for the next three months. Thankfully, there are options for the Broadway-inclined. For example: I’m Still Here, a big-screen version of Elaine Paige’s farewell concert playing today only. Don’t worry, gang: The First Lady of British Musical Theater is retiring from touring, not the stage. You don’t have to wear black. Click for tickets! Come to the Cabaret for a CauseMay 17 at BirdlandThis is your semiannual reminder that no one raises money for a good cause like Broadway stars. Hunky dudes taking it off! Stars dispensing sugary treats! Really, no one else come close. This time around, Lena Hall, Judy Kaye, Cady Huffman and other Broadway stars join cabaret performer Jamie deRoy for an evening of entertainment to support The Actors Fund’s new program, The Jamie deRoy & Friends Cabaret Initiative, which assists people working in the cabaret industry.

Well, you can’t rest quite yet. Why? There’s too much stuff to do! We’ve got Earl Carpenter’s return to Les Miz, Elaine Paige on the big screen, and the premiere of Pitch Perfect 2. Get ready for this week’s picks! Wake Up with Anna & the KingMay 12, check local listingsUsually, we’d be psyched to see Kelli O’Hara on Live with Kelly and Michael, because the lady knows how to deliver a juicy backstage anecdote. (The dressing room couch ain’t just for sleeping, guys!) But today, the star of The King and I brings along the cast, which means a musical performance from the Tony-nominated revival! Yay! Or maybe everyone will make a gigantic Denver omelet. Morning TV is weird that way. Make Your Friday Pitch-yIn movie theatres May 15Three years after charming us—and branding “The Sign” on our brains—the Bellas return for Pitch Perfect 2. Good news abounds. The awesome scene-stealers from the hip musical comedy—headlined by Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson—return. Ditto writer Kay Cannon. And Elizabeth Banks, who is incapable of being unfunny, acts and directs. The bad news: we have to wait until Friday. Stupid rotation of the earth.

Should he play in the Barclays Premier League contest at the Cardiff City Stadium, it will be the first time Odemwingie has come up against his former employers since leaving Albion for the Welsh outfit in the closing stages of the last transfer window. His stint with the Baggies, which lasted three seasons, turned sour, with him driving to QPR on deadline-day in the previous window in a bid to secure a move, only for the deal to fall apart. Cardiff boss Malky Mackay has described Bluebirds summer recruit Peter Odemwingie as “a joy to work with” ahead of Saturday’s clash with the striker’s old club West Brom. But while that incident might have given the impression that the Nigeria international is a troublemaker, Mackay had only positive things to say about Odemwingie on Friday. Regarding the 32-year-old, who has so far made 12 appearances and scored two goals for Cardiff, Mackay said: “There was a lot of press around Peter concerning that January, in terms of his on-off transfer to QPR. “He obviously took a lot of stick over that, but I can only speak about the lad that I know. “I phoned up certain people who played with him and coached him and managed him and they were glowing. “If they hadn’t been, that would have given me cause for concern. “The boy I have met and I have here is articulate, he speaks four or five different languages, he is intelligent, he has smiled since the day he arrived here and he is very polite too. “He is a talented footballer and definitely wants to do well for us. He has been a joy to work with and he wants to do the best he can for the club, so it has been a really good one for us. “We did our homework on him and had he not been the right kind of person, I wouldn’t have brought him in.” Odemwingie has scored just twice for the Bluebirds since joining the club and has often had to settle for a place on the bench but his former boss Steve Clarke accepts there is a possibility he could return to haunt West Brom. Clarke said: “It is possible, it can happen. He is a goalscorer, that is his position. “So, if he is selected to play for Cardiff we will have to deal with him, the same as we will have to for anyone else they select. “Former players come back, they play against you. That’s what happens. “People move on in football. Peter has moved on from here and so have we.” Press Association
