New York: Jimmy Fallon is tapping the power of Broadway this week.

The talk show host will be introducing a different musical act every night on NBC`s "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" from among the shows playing in Times Square just a few blocks away.

It starts Monday night with a performance by the cast of the Tony-winning musical "Memphis." On Tuesday, Sean Hayes was scheduled to stop by with castmates from "Promises, Promises."

Billie Joe Armstrong is expected on Wednesday to introduce the Tony-winning musical "American Idiot" based on Green Day`s music, and Thursday will feature music from the upcoming "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson."

It`s Fallon`s first stab at creating a Broadway-themed week.
