What was your favorite Tony Awards performance ?
I thought that Ring of Keys was beautiful, but they screwed it up when they took the camera off of her at the very end.
Ring of Keys, without a doubt.
Ring of Keys and OTTC.
Ring of Keys, hands down.
There was Ring of Keys...and then there was everything else.
I'm going to be different than everyone else and say "Ring of Keys."
It was a long slope downward to the number 2 performance.
The King and I
A Musical was really good. Only I thought the tight close ups are distracting for theatre pieces. It isn't directed that way. Pull the camera back a little... like you are sitting in the 8th row or so and leave it there.
I think there's a lot of bias in some of the analysis here. I thought Lucas sounded fine on Ring of Keys, but it was hardly a captivating performance for someone who hasn't seen the show/didn't know what it was about. And everyone knows I loved The King and I, but I wouldn't call it my favorite performance of the night for basically the same reason.
Honestly, I think the best performances of the night were probably It Shoulda Been You and American in Paris (though American in Paris should have cut the ballet a little shorter at the beginning and gotten to the group numbers more quickly).
The Lisa Howard Show
I think it was Something Rotten! I also loved It Should Have Been You and Gigi. Gigi's performance is much better when seen in context at the show though.
Fun Home, hands down
Finding Neverland, Fun Home, It Shoulda Been You.
My favorites were ring of keys, the King and I's medley and on the towns performance and something rotten was perfect.
Favorites- A Musical, Ring of Keys, King and I Medley
Least Favorites- The Visit, American in Paris, On the Town, Gigi
I discovered I am REALLY not a fan of ballet.
I love finding Neverland, but the ensble part for stronger is just so wrong. All they sing is stronger/faster on repeat.
Ring of Keys without a question. I also thought King and I, Something Rotten, and It Shoulda Been You came off well, even if the quality of the material wasn't always great.
Generally, most of the medley performances felt very rushed and sloppy. And the song from Finding Neverland was just embarassing.
The King and I, Fun Home and Finding Neverland
Fun Home,but I wish it included Michael doing a number.
The only one I didn't care for was Finding Neverland.
That being said, I was completely blown away when the Broadway chorus came out from the stage and started singing along with Josh Groban. I thought it was extremely moving.
"I thought Lucas sounded fine on Ring of Keys, but it was hardly a captivating performance for someone who hasn't seen the show/didn't know what it was about."Two relatives and two friends immediately bought tickets online after that performance.
Something Rotten. And it wasn't close.
I enjoyed Ring of Keys, but I love the show. The reaction I got from others who don't know the show was "she's cute" and "she has a really good voice", but that was about it. It had no "meaning" or impact to those who didn't even know what the show was about.
While Something Rotten isn't my favorite show I think their number, particularly as the opening made the MOST impact to most "on the fence" musical lovers. It was fun, big, and had everything. And you really didn't need to know a thing about the show to fully enjoy it.
Normally I like it when they do a medley, but somehow The King and I left me cold last night. I think it just wasn't enough of anything to actually get into it.
