Look who’s coming to town..

It seems like every day there's a new release talking about how a certain famous person will be blessing the Twin Cities with his or her presence.

Here's who I've heard about in just the past week:

Right now: Actress Tippi Hedren - star of Alfred Hitchcock's movie The Birds is in town.

On March 16 Harry Belafonte will be at the Walker Art Center for a screening of his new documentary.

The very next day (March 16) First Lady Michelle Obama will be at the Walker Art Center for a fundraiser for her husband's re-election campaign.

Kathleen Turner will star in the national tour of the stage drama "High," which runs April 18 through 22 at the Pantages Theatre in downtown Minneapolis.

Just yesterday Hennepin Theatre Trust announced that acclaimed singer/actress Kristin Chenoweth will be stopping in Minneapolis on her world tour. She performs at the State Theatre on June 17; tickets go on sale Friday.

So who are you excited to have come to town?
