A man accused of stalking Deborah Gibson was arrested after he showed up at the Broadway musical "Beauty and the Beast," where she is starring as Belle.

Michael Falkner, 28, of Eau Claire, Wis., was arrested Sunday night at the Palace Theatre and charged with one count of aggravated assault, police spokeswoman Kathy Kelly said.Police couldn't say how long Falkner has allegedly harassed Gibson but said he was a member of her fan club and had sent her e-mails and faxes.

Falkner alarmed Gibson - who went by Debbie Gibson at the start of her pop singing career - when he showed up at the theater, Kelly said.
