Musical Man

I'm not a huge musical theater fan (at least, not compared to some people I know) but I do enjoy it. Especially when it's done as well as this past weekend's staged reading (and singing!) of Sondheim's classic Company with the NY Philharmonic! Neil Patrick Harris (swoon) played Bobby, the main character, a single guy whose married friends are always trying to convince him to get serious about relationships. The best couple was Stephen Colbert and Martha Plimpton, who delighted the audience with some extremely physical humor and acrobatics, and basically stole every scene they were in. What a blast! The performance also featured the powerhouse diva of divas, Patti LuPone, singing the iconic "Ladies Who Lunch" and blowing us all away.

It seems to be my week for unforgettable theater experiences. What's your favorite musical or play?


Well, I adore musical theatre. There are so many plays to choose from, but the music from Suessical always stays in mind for a long time. "Alone in the Universe" never fails to bring a tear to my eye!

Aw, Maria! I've never heard that one, I'll have to look it up.
