NEW YORK - Michael Strahan has tackled something few football stars have attempted - Broadway.
The gap-toothed co-host of "Live with Kelly and Michael" made three short appearances at Wednesday's matinee of "Elf" and said he has new respect for Broadway performers.
"I was surprised at how nervous you get and the adrenaline and that feedback from the audience - it really was an amazing thing," the former football player said after the show. "To see these performers who do it every day - eight or nine times a week - is really amazing. I take my hat off to them."
Fans can see a behind-the-scenes recap on Thursday's TV show.
The musical is adapted from the Will Ferrell film from 2003 about Buddy, a human raised in the North Pole who travels to New York in search of his parents.
