8. Gerswhin’s Porgy and Bess
This season’s stunning revival of George Gershwin’s classic Porgy and Bess definitely earned its Best Revival of a Musical and Best Leading Actress awards. What a way to showcase the show’s entire fantastic cast!
Ricky Martin goes back to his Broadway roots (he once played Marius in Les Mis) as the revolutionary/narrator Che Guevara in Evita. Between this one and Jesus Christ Superstar, it sure was a big year for Andrew Lloyd Webber revivals.
The revival of Godspell was kind of the Hair of this season, getting people up out of their seats and dancing in the aisles. Though the production wasn’t very well received by the critics, it sure looks like the cast is having fun up there, doesn’t it?
Performances from Jesus Christ Superstar and more up next!
