Theatre Day

(Community Matters) a matinee and an evening show – Tony award-winning Best Play, VANYA and SONIA and MASHA and SPIKE, and Tony award-winning best musical, Kinky Boots, respectively.

Sigourney Weaver and David Hyde Pierce star in VANYA and SONIA and MASHA and SPIKE, Christopher Durang’s newest Broadway production. It was funny, very funny – super performers and a fun story.

I’m not a huge fan of musicals and we enjoyed Kinky Boots. They were having an off night, a few voice issues by the two male leads and, frankly, the choreography surprised me. Each of the stars (both male leads were nominated for best actor in a musical – Billy Porter won – and the female lead for best actress) had spectacular moments – Annaleigh Ashford was consistent tonight and nearly stole the show. Though impossible to steal the show from Porter, his character too sympathetic.

We’re glad to have seen each.

One response to “Theatre Day

  1. Glad you enjoyed “Vanya et al.” I thought it was a hoot, and Billy Magnussen was certainly easy to look at. Two favorite lines from the show: “You may speak at 4:30; that’s when I have my nap” and “Maybe community theaters shouldn’t do the Oresteia.”
