On a day that Broadway was celebrating at the Tony Awards nominations, there was another, bigger reason to cheer: One of their own was cancer-free. LeKae, a budding Broadway star who earned a Tony nomination playing Diana Ross in the hit show "Motown the Musical," took to Twitter on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, to say that she has beaten ovarian cancer.

The newly renovated Howard Theatre opened a year ago bringing back memories of Duke Ellington, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross who all played the club when it was a premier entertainment destination. Its amateur night gave young talents such as Ella Fitzgerald and Billy Eckstine their big breaks.

Those who frequented the Howard Theatre back in the day are impressed with the newly renovated space. Stars including Duke Ellington, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross once performed at the club, which many residents remember cutting school for to see the shows. The theater will now offer a full-scale kitchen, bar and, of course, live acts. (Barbara L. Sallisbury/The Washington Times)
