THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: The Last Five Years Star Adam Kantor Shares His Theatregoing Experiences
02 Oct 2013
Playbill.com's new feature series, Their Favorite Things, asks members of the theatre community to share the Broadway performances that most affected them as part of the audience.
This week we spotlight the choices (in chronological order) of singing actor Adam Kantor, who co-starred opposite Betsy Wolfe in the acclaimed Second Stage Theatre revival of The Last Five Years. Kantor and Wolfe will revisit Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown's score in a concert version of that musical Oct. 16-19 at 54 Below; the evenings will celebrate the recently released cast recording on the Ghostlight label. (They will also perform the musical in concert at Boston's Huntington Theatre Company Nov. 23-24.)
Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.
