THE SCREENING ROOM: Our Favorite Elaine Paige Musical Moments
14 Jan 2012
Olivier Award-winning actress Elaine Paige is currently starring as unstoppable showbiz survivor Carlotta Campion in the Broadway revival of Follies.
The Stephen Sondheim-James Goldman musical will conclude its Broadway run Jan. 22 prior to a Los Angeles engagement at the Center Theatre Group's Ahmanson Theatre beginning May 9. Paige will be among the Broadway cast members who will repeat their work on the West Coast.
Before Paige packs up her black sable and heads west, Playbill.com decided to pick out some of our favorite musical moments from her career that has spanned Evita, Cats, Sunset Boulevard, Chess and Anything Goes, to name a few.
The first Evita belts out "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" for a special concert of Andrew Lloyd Webber's music.
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.
