Lovely performances and a very infectious song. Probably one of the last truly great Broadway musicals.

I was prepared to make fun of this, but it’s one of the few performances of its ilk that was any good. 9/10.

We had a thread on this earlier today but now it seems to have disappeared.

That was great! Thanks, OP!

Love this show - and this number. So many great faces in the cast!

Ricki looks great.

Why is Randy Rainbow in this?

I'm always in tears by the end of this song. It's so optimistic and then I think of how the world really is and I can't help myself.

Bump for those who haven't seen it.

r9 The show opened on Broadway only a year after 9/11, so the world wasn't perfect back then either. Makes you think what kind of creativity is in store once the current crisis blows over.

Those FUCKERS didn’t even think to bring a webcam to my grave so that my ghost could perform on Zoom!😡

"Makes you think what kind of creativity is in store once the current crisis blows over."

More "Slave Play" shows and full-on woke Broadway. That's what passes for creativity these days. Let's put a woman as the central figure of " Company." Let's have a black Hermoine. Wow! Creative!

"Why is Randy Rainbow in this?"

Probably because of his parody of Trump that got so much publicity, " You Can't Stop the Tweets."

I saw the original Broadway cast and the LA show with Bruce Vilanch......both were surprisingly life affirming and hopeful nights.....who knew John Waters would eventually inspire???? I remember seeing the original film in the theater as well and loved Ricki Lake.....if Biden wins, this would be a great live performance idea for one of his inauguration events.....and I am one of those saps who ends up crying by the time this song is finished.....

For me, nothing beats the original John Waters movie. And Ricki Lake is the best Tracy Turnblad by miles.....!!

by Anonymousreply 1805/16/2020

I thought Nikki Blonsky was an incredible Tracy Turnblad and I've seen four or five of them!

Jackie Hoffman! Jennifer Lewis! Andrea Martin!

What great fun, and lots of the original Broadway choreography I see from Jerry Mitchell (also included)!

by Anonymousreply 1905/16/2020

I'm guessing they didn't bother to ask John.

Always nice to see Darlene Love.

What brand if earbuds does Ricki sport?

by Anonymousreply 2205/17/2020

This is terrific. CBS and the Tonys are fools not to put a night of music together for broadcast.

by Anonymousreply 2305/17/2020

I smiled throughout! A real pick-me-up!

by Anonymousreply 2405/17/2020

R20 Yeah, kind of odd they didn't. Or maybe he couldn't participate for some reason...

Zac Efron didn't do the High School Musical reunion and now this and you know they asked him especially since the movie director Adam Shankman was in it.

OK fellow homosexuals, you will know, I'm obsessed with backdrop of Laura Bell Bundy. They look like sheer drapes with trees on them or they are a wall covering, What is it? Love it. Go 24 seconds in.

I've had a big, goofy smile on my face since I found this.

Plus, big-booty'd Garrett Clayton shaking his big booty.

by Anonymousreply 2905/18/2020

Zac Efron has spoken openly about his hatred for almost every movie he’s been in minus like one or two.

I really needed to see this today. Thank you!
