In the category of Live Theatre, there’s Idina Menzel, Judith Light, Paul Sorvino, and Cedric The Entertainer.

There’s one last category not mentioned, and it’s Radio.  There’s currently no selections.

Individuals can receive a star posthumously.  In this case, there’s the ceremonies of Julia Child and Jackie Wilson this upcoming year. For those still with us, they MUST attend the ceremony.  So as always, it’s a great opportunity for those hoping for a guaranteed celebrity sighting when in Hollywood.  Plus, there’s usually famous guest speakers helping to celebrate the star.

Glitterati Tours can include the Walk of Fame and a peek at its famous neighbors like Grauman’s Chinese Theater and The Dolby Theatre, during our “Essential LA” and “Whirlwind LA” tours.
