George Hearn – Sunset Boulevard One of my favorite moments from Sunset Boulevard. His voice is just so rich and beautiful and the performance is just so regal. My favorite line: "There was a maharaja…”
Mandy Patinkin Sings "You've Got to be Carefully Taught/Children Will Listen" Medley One of my favorite song interpretations of two great Broadway songs that touch on the human experience.
Sam Harris sings "Over The Rainbow" (1984) Star Search Who doesn’t love Sam Harris, the last 30 seconds of this performance and the bonus 80’s fashion?
2013 Tony Awards: Neil Patrick Harris Opening Number Still one of my favorite Tony Awards moments ever! Just so much fun and brilliant!
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
