Broadway. I was hooked from the very first time. On a school sponsored field trip, we saw “George M”, with Joel Grey and Bernadette Peters.
The current phenomenon is “Hamilton” from the creative genius of Lin Manuel Miranda. He had the vision to present American history in hip-hop rhythms blended with traditional Broadway sounds, period costumes, inspirational messages and a love story.
It is said you will have to auction body parts to acquire tickets.
This piece of spontaneous karaoke with Miranda and a few other Broadway talents, presented by late night talk show host James Corden, just makes me smile.
Until you get to the 8 minute mark, and they break into “Les Miserables”.
One Day More. Tears.
** The Tony Awards, honoring American theatre, are presented tonight in a live show hosted by Corden.
