PLAYBILL POLL: What Was Your Favorite Performance from the 2014 Tony Awards? Readers Respond
15 Jun 2014
Whitney West: I loved Idina Menzel's performance for If/Then, because of the simplicity. It may have not had all the lights and set pieces the others did, but it was still a beautiful performance. Rachel Bartlett: Idina Menzel, no question. THAT's how you do POWERHOUSE. Seth McKenzie: Idina Menzel was amazing! @CanuHavJoy: Seriously? So many great performances, but Idina killed it! Blown away and have watched it every day since!
Watch Idina Menzel perform "Always Starting Over" on the Tonys:
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.
