WEEK AHEAD: Julia Takes Her Final Bow
Oscar winner Julia Roberts says goodbye to the Great White Way when her show Three Days of Rain closes on Sunday. PEOPLE looks at her last performance plus other events to watch for in the coming week:
SUNDAY, JUNE 18: Julia Roberts is giving her regards to Broadway as her show Three Days of Rain wraps up after a 12-week run. Though the Oscar-winning actress didn’t nab a Tony nomination for her dual role in the production, she did give a shout-out to her fellow Great White Way-ers at last week’s awards show. “I just want to take this opportunity to say that you people are insanely talented,” she said.
MONDAY, JUNE 19: Appleheads, rejoice! Fiona Apple – whose long-awaited third album, Extraordinary Machine, has received critical raves – kicks off her 32-city U.S. tour at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Irish alt-folk singer Damien Rice is one of Apple’s opening acts.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21: Simon Cowell is back with another talent contest – but this time he won’t be sitting in the judging seat. The American Idol star is executive producer of the new NBC show America’s Got Talent. Regis Philbin hosts, while Moesha star Brandy, actor David Hasselhoff and British media figure Piers Morgan weigh in on the wannabe performers – from singers to contortionists (8 p.m. ET).
It’s a blast from the past when 20 housemates from past seasons shack up for Big Brother 7: All-Stars. Who’s among the roomies? You’ll have to wait for the season opener, when host Julie Chen reveals viewers’ choices to compete for the $500,000 prize (CBS at 8 p.m. ET).
