Today we had our 200th performance for Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, and my amazing director flew in to St Louis from New York to celebrate with us! I am so lucky to have a director with a brain of a genius, the vision of a god, and an even bigger heart. Marc Bruni, you are EVERYTHING! Happy 200th! #BeautifulOnTour #MeetMeInStLouis #MarcBruni

From the outside, 5 East 64th Street may look like an elegant, classic Upper East Side townhouse. But inside, it offers wild and opulent interiors befitting its former owner, fashion designer Gianni Versace. And now, the home, which Swedish hedge fund manager Thomas Sandell purchased in 2005 for $30 million, can (kind of) be yours. Sandell just listed it on the rental market for an incredible $120,000-a-month starting in August.
Singer/songwriter Vanessa Carlton, of “A Thousand Miles” fame is renting out her Soho apartment for $17,500-a-month. No, it’s not in a “White House.”
Johnson & Johnson heiress Libet Johnson is officially listing her Upper East Side mansion for $55 million, or $4,541 per square foot, after years of quietly shopping it around. Johnson has owned the house since 2011, when she bought it from Beauty.com founder Roger Barnett and another heiress, George Lindemann’s daughter Sloan Lindemann Barnett, for $48 million.
Ghislaine Maxwell – daughter of a disgraced publisher, friend to Britain’s Prince Andrew and alleged madam of underage escorts – sold her house on the Upper East Side. The socialite disposed of the five-story, 7,000-square-foot Beaux Arts townhouse at 116 East 65th Street on the Upper East Side, banking $15 million.
Money never sleeps – but Michael Douglas’ in-laws need a place to. The star of “Wall Street” was spotted checking out rental units at the Moinian Group’s Atelier condo building in Midtown Monday, sources told The Real Deal. But Allen Burry, a publicist for the Hollywood heavyweight, said the apartment was not for Douglas but for the parents of his wife, Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Alex Rodriguez (aka A Rod) was spotted checking out rentals at 15 Central Park West, where the Post reports he was banned from returning because “he brought in too many hookers.”
