Fans lined West 48th Street on Monday night -- those not lucky enough to enter Highbar that is -- as the stars of ABC's hit comedy Ugly Betty came out to celebrate the season premiere, which will air on Thursday, September 25. After two years of filming in L.A., the show is now being shot in New York (where the series is set) and the cast told TheaterMania.com they couldn't be happier to be roaming around the Big Apple. Stars with theatrical roots, like America Ferrera, Vanessa Williams, Judith Light, and Ana Ortiz (a member of the LAByrinth Theatre Company, but no relation to co-founder John Ortiz), all said they hoped the homecoming will afford them a chance to return to the Big Apple boards soon. Others, like Becki Newton and Mark Indelicato, are itching to make their Broadway debuts. And to a person, the cast can't wait to catch as many shows as possible, with In the Heights, Gypsy, and South Pacific topping many a wish list.
