You probably can’t watch most of the shows Broadway has to offer before they take center stage at the Tony Awards this Sunday, but don’t worry – one of Broadway’s own is here to help.
Laura Benanti, a Tony Award winner and Broadway darling, teamed up again with TheaterMania to explain the musicals and plays that were on the Great White Way during the 2015-16 season.
Benanti, who is a 2016 Tony nominee for her role as Amalia in “She Loves Me,” takes a sarcastic and witty view of the shows. How else could she have gotten away with labeling “Les Misérables” a comedy in her 2014 video?
See some of the most hilarious ways Benanti described the recent Broadway shows below (full videos at bottom):
“An Act of God”
“The Color Purple”
“Waitress: A New Musical”
“On Your Feet!”
She’s actually not at all joking with this one.
“She Loves Me” (in which Benanti stars)
We see what you did there.
