Forbidden Broadway is back! My depression has lifted! It's always so fun for me when they parody someone I've never seen anyone else do therefore I must give a big brava to Marcus Stevens' imitation of Matthew Broderick. It is effing hilarious.
The Mystery of Edwin Drood! I've always been a fan of the show and this revival is delish. The show is so well-cast! A special shout out to Gregg Edelman who often has to play serious roles and finally has a role that gets to show people how funny he is.
Patti LuPone at 54 Below. What a show! So many great songs and each one had phenominal high notes. She's still got it!
The Book of Mormon national tour. Jared Gartner was hi-lar as Elder Cunnigham and it was a thrill to see Gavin Creel be so funny while hauling out his dreamy voice.
The revival of Closer Than Ever (I went twice!). I saw a different cast each time and they were fantastic. Plus, the songs Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire wrote are so beautiful/funny/moving/perfect!
Luke Spring who does a show-stopping tap solo during the song "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out" in A Christmas Story. I never felt older and/or less talented.
Zachary Unger, the 9-year-old in Chaplin who does a spot-on British accent and hauls out real tears throughout the show. Again, never felt older and/or less talented.
Old Jews Telling Jokes. Literally laughed the whole show...and never felt younger!
