The Friday 5: 5 One-and-Done Broadway Shows

As we traveled into the city for our latest theater weekend, Mike and I got to chatting about all the shows we've seen over the years, and boy, have we been fortunate. We've seen some great stuff, and many of them more than once. And there have been several that we wish we'd had the chance to see again. Which brings us to today's Friday 5. Both of us came up with a list of shows that we saw, and really appreciated. We are glad we saw them, but for whatever reason, once was enough. Do you have any shows you'd put on this list? Email or Tweet us!

The Broadway Ladies: Ms. August 2018: Rachel York

Since the late 80's, she's been a fixture on the theater scene: on Broadway, off-Broadway, national tours and regional theater. She's created roles, and she's been a high profile replacement. She does campy, dramatic, classic comedy, and she's played some of the greatest classic roles: Anna, Kate/Lily, and Dolly. And she's conquered some of the modern musical biggies, too: the Witch, Little Edie and Fantine. These days, she's tearing up the boards as Gynecia, Queen of Arcadia in The Go-Go's musical, Head Over Heels. With such a resume, it's no wonder that Rachel York is Ms. Broadway August 2018.
