WIGWURQ SALUTES: BWAY 2015-2016!
The TONY Awards were Sunday (spoiler alert: some show called Hamilton won everything) but like most awards shows…there just weren’t enough wig awards!
That is where we come in…here are the best wigs of the season!
BEST WIG IN A HORRIBLE PLAY: LAURIE METCALF IN MISERY
I had such high hopes for this show and it was so not scary, not campy, not any really anything but an exercise in Laurie Metcalf slowly eating scenery while Bruce Willis tried to stay awake. Also: her wig was good!
BEST WIG TO MAKE YOU CRY IN A PLAY: NUMBER THREE’S WIG IN ECLIPSED
This show will make you cry from start to finish. It’s wonderful and so is its use of THAT WIG.
BEST HISTORICAL WIG IN A MUSICAL: KING GEORGE IN HAMILTON
We are contractually obligated to give Hamilton something, and this wig IS SOMETHING that will probably make you send an armed battalion to remind you of its love.
BEST WIGLETS IN A MUSICAL: SCHOOL OF ROCK KIDS IN SCHOOL OF ROCK
The only picture I could find of these kids wearing wiglets for the finale was with Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber. So be it. Lil kids playing instruments and wearing wig pieces. Amen!
BEST CONTEMPORARY WIGS IN A MUSICAL: WAITRESS
This show is a sweet taste of pie and the wigs are pretty sweet too!
BEST WIGS OF THE SEASON: SHE LOVES ME
YES THOSE ARE WIGS. THAT IS WHY THEY ARE THE BEST!
And this has been the year in Broadway wigs. Theater!
