Review

 
Future Tony winners hit the stage in Carlsbad Community Theatre’s musical revue Tonys Tonight. What follows is a commercial-free awards show featuring some speeches, a few divas, and a lot of music from Broadway’s biggest hits past and present including Les Miserables, West Side Story, Hairspray, Mamma Mia!, Annie, Legally Blonde, and more.

Director Eric Hellmers put together this fun little night of show tunes that kicks off with an entertaining full-cast parody of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum’s “A Comedy Tonight,” substituted with “Tonys Tonight” led by Avery Mann. A few of the evening’s highlights include:

* Livi Langen and Emily Schneider fighting it out as Wicked’s Elphaba and Glinda in The Wizard and I.

* Allie DeGour as an amusing Elle knocking out Legally Blonde’s So Much Better.

* Miranda Colvin’s sweet On My Own from Les Miserables, Casey Sawyer’s wistful Home from Beauty and the Beast, and Troy Lingelbach’s comedic, non-gangish Cool from West Side Story.

* A hilarious Erin Elliott accepting her award with a classic speech full of false modesty, a determination to take as much time as she wants, and almost wanting to welcome her fellow cast members up on stage with her.

* And several big group numbers by the lively young cast from the opening Tonys Tonight to Annies Youre Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile, disco’s Dancing Queen, Disney’s Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, a hopping Nicest Kids in Town a la Hairspray, and kicking us out with a cute So Long, Farewell (The Sound of Music) and The Wiz’s vibrant Brand New Day.

Performed October 1 - 2, 2010
