There are only two television show I watch — seriously, only two — Top Chef and The Office. And let me tell you, I love The Office in ways one shouldn’t…couldn’t…wouldn’t love a television show. And it’s because of this love that I’m jazzed to report that Melora Hardin (or as I call her, Jan) will be venturing to my little island to star on Broadway in Chicago.
Ecorazzi’s own Marissa Moss chatted with Hardin back in March where she told us “I’m never buying target clothes for my kids again. ” She then raved about a pair of vegan shoes a designer gave her a while back and told us she’d recently gotten a Prius, began recycling, installed Aqua 2000 (a home water purification system that prevents her family from buying bottles) and brings cloth tote bags to the supermarket.
It’s true that Broadway producers (especially the producers of Chicago) have a habit of hiring stars that are totally unfit for the role just to sell tickets. This, I can guarantee you, is not the case here! Hardin starred in Les Miserable a few months back when it was at the Hollywood Bowl and I can vouch for her serious chops!
So check out Chicago from December 29 through February 12 and see one of our favorite green gals do her thing! You better believe we’ll be there!
