Prince of Broadway.
If you can see it, SEE IT.
Look, it’s no Falsettos. I’ll always love Falsettos (and, of course, the Year 1 Newsies tour) the best. That’s not going to change.
But holy shit.
Yes, Brandon plays the Emcee in “Cabaret” and he’s great. But MY GOD, his Molina in “Kiss of the Spider Woman” is even better. His George in “She Loves Me” is Mendel’s nerves dressed up in Inspector Gadget’s clothing. He even gets to be a Jewish boy who cannot play baseball in “Damn Yankees.”
Also Chuck Cooper and Bryonha Marie Parham are FLAWLESS. Bryonha’s Sally Bowles brought the house down. Chuck’s Tevye was INCREDIBLE.
The whole cast stagedoored. It was an experience. I honestly hope I can see it again.
