2015 TONY AWARD PERFORMANCES
Tony season has come and gone, so below I have posted the performances from this years show. The 2 stand out performances this year in my opinion were SOMETHING ROTTEN! and FUN HOME.
Something Rotten! set in 1595 follows 2 brothers trying to make it in the theatre world, as they compete with their contemporary… William Shakespeare. The Tony performance showcases a classic broadway style with a modern “meta-self aware” approach.
Fun Home is based on a 2006 graphic novel memoir of the same name. Broadways first lesbian protagonist character attempts to unfurl the mysteries surrounding her fathers life. Young actress Sydney Lucas is captivating as the young Alison Bechdel and her performance caught me off guard. The simple melody and staging coupled with the powerful message and delivery has seen me watch this many times.
