One of Blindie’s fave comedic actresses Lauren Graham is donning ’30s glam for her Broadway debut in a revival of Guys and Dolls.

In the shot, released to Entertainment Weekly, the Gilmore Girls alum channels her character, nightclub singer Mis Adelaide.

Referencing her vocal prowess in a famous and touching scene (see below) in Gilmore Girls where she karaokes Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” to her love Luke, Graham said, “Lorelai was drunk. Don’t gauge my singing ability by Lorelai singing drunk in the seventh season.”

Blindie’s been missing Graham’s wit and talent since the cancellation of her long-running WB/The CW series. Since her exodus from Stars Hollow, Graham has starred on the big screen with Steve Carell in Evan Almighty and Greg Kinnear in Flash of Genius.
