Audra’s performance in Lady Day is beyond words.

benantii:

I dunno if someone’s already shared this, but I uploaded this a while ago and the link is going to expire soon, so I thought I might as well do it anyway.

This is from the 1998 Broadway revival of The Sound Of Music, with Laura Benanti as Maria opposite Richard Chamberlain.

Never-ending List of Favorite Stage Performances - Laura Benanti as “Louise/Gypsy Rose Lee” in Gypsy

Though Gypsy relies heavily on the prowess of the actress playing Rose, I am of the opinion that the show itself is held together by the actress playing Louise.  The story follows her transformation, after all, from shy duckling to confident queen of burlesque.  To me, Laura Benanti was the heart of the 2008 Gypsy revival.  She was a sweet, wounded bird, and at the end, when she finally came into her own, it was magical and terrifying.  I would be surprised if I breathed once during “The Strip,” and she caused my heart to pound in my chest when Louise finally stood up to her mother.  Benanti gave one of the most powerful transformations I have seen onstage.  She was unforgettable.

I ACCIDENTALLY BOUGHT A FULL-PRICED TICKET TO LADY DAY.

Patti LuPone didn’t even get this long of a standing O when I saw her perform Roses Turn in Gypsy back in ‘08.
