And The Best Actors In Leading Roles In A Musical And In A Play Are…

Filed under: Broadway BabiesTony Awards


Wow! Two MORE FANTASTIC Tony Award firsts!

And two absolutely gorgeous, touching acceptance speeches!

Steve Kazee just took home the 2012 Best Performance By An Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his incredible work in Once, and in an absolutely heartwrenching and beautiful acceptance speech, thanked his cast and crew for helping him stay strong after the passing of his mother.

Just so incredibly moving.

Directly afterward, James Corden won the Best Performance By An Actor in a Leading Role in a Play for his work in One Man, Two Guvnors, and gave an equally touching, if not entirely different, thank you to his fellow nominees, as well as his fiances!

Ch-ch-check out both speeches (above)!

Ugh!

We're all choked up!

Well-deserved, both you! Congrats!

Bernadette Peters Says Farewell To Follies

Filed under: Broadway Babies

bernadette peters leaving follies

Bummer! We thought she was FABULOUS in this show!

Earlier this month, we were excited to hear that one our favorite Broadway productions Follies is coming to Hollywood!

We were REALLY hoping that the B'way cast would reprise their roles in El Lay, but now we're hearing that Bernadette Peters will be leaving the show. Sad.

We're sure the Los Angeles version of Follies will still be great…but yeah. We're gonna miss her.

Sigh.

Life's A Great Big Follies

bernadette.jpg

We have a confession to make. While we think Stephen Sondheim is a genius - without question - we find his body of work to be hit or miss.

Some of his musicals are epic and timeless classics. While we find some others difficult to sit through. That was the case with our last Sondheim experience, when we saw the awful revival of Company on Broadway. We loved Raul Esparza in that revival, but we did not like the production - nor are we a fan of the show.

We'd never seen Follies before, so we weren't quite sure what to expect when we caught it Friday night on Broadway. THANKFULLY, we loved it!

Sure, the first act starts off very slowly, but once the stakes raise and the emotions intensify, it quickly became a very gripping show! And the music! Wow! Some of Sondheim's best work!

I'm Still Here, Broadway Baby, and In Buddy's Eyes - to name a few!

And, WOW, did this production feature an all-star cast! Bernadette Peters was fabulous! That voice is like honey! And STILL flawless! She told us backstage she doesn't smoke or even drink - and you could tell! She really protects her precious instrument and her voice is still something to be experienced!

Elaine Paige was fabulous, but her role is very supporting.

The real revelation in this production was Jan Maxwell. We'd never seen her in anything before and weren't familiar with her, but we are now obsessed! Wow! Wow! Wow! She was soooooooo good!

Really enjoyed Follies!
