Justin Timberlake Sends Roses & Thank You Note to Broadway Stars Who Paid Tribute to Him 

ABC/Randy HolmesIf you can't get tickets to see Justin Timberlake's current tour, the next best thing might be hearing his music sung by professional Broadway performers.  That's what happened Monday night in New York City, as the stars of shows like Pippin, Cinderella, Newsies, The Book of Mormon and Hedwig & the Angry Inch got together for Broadway Sings Justin Timberlake  -- and JT himself couldn't have been happier.

As Playbill reports, the show's producer Corey Mach showing a bouquet of roses and a note which Justin sent to him and the cast.  According to Mach, there were four dozen roses, and the note read, "Break legs! I am very honored. Best, JT."

The production featured performances of Justin's hits "Cry Me a River," "My Love" and "Suit and Tie," as well as his hits with 'N SYNC, backed by a full jazz band.  Another installment of the show will be performed Monday, July 21 at the New York club Le Poisson Rouge [leh pwah-SOHN rooj].

Other artists whose songs have been featured in the ongoing Broadway Sings series include Adele, Beyonce, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson.
