Mr and Ms Broadway 2013

This year's choices for Broadway man and woman of the year are pretty unconventional.  One didn't actually appear on Broadway in 2013; one would be 449 were he alive in 2013.  Unconventional choices, but no less valid.

Mr. Broadway 2013 had a banner year this year.  On Broadway alone, there were two productions of Macbeth, a Romeo and Juliet (the same time it played off-Broadway, no less!), and Twelfth Night and Richard III in rep!  And there were a ton of productions all around New York City, including a Julie Taymor Midsummer Night's Dream, an all-female Julius Caesar, and, of course, The Comedy of Errors and a musical version of Love's Labours Lost in Central Park.  Of course, I'm talking about William Shakespeare.

Ms. Broadway 2013 also had an amazing year.  But the two-time Tony nominee didn't step foot on a  Broadway stage.  That doesn't mean she didn't make an impact of the theatre scene.  In addition to a new album and a stint at 54 Below, she lit up two productions off-Broadway, and both were critically acclaimed and successes with the public.  In Classic Stage Company's revival of Passion, she took the iconic role of Fosca and made it all her own - touching, crazy and even funny!  Most recently, she has been playing the mother of Alison Bechdel in Fun Home, giving a touching, passionate performance.  Of course, I'm talking about Judy Kuhn.


Here is their year in pictures (Click on each image to enlarge):
