The Tony Award-nominated revival of On the Town kicked off Fleet Week in New York with a Today Show performance of “New York, New York” that can only be described as on fleek. Below are 12 random thoughts we had the first time (or 10 times) we watched the fantastic opening number.
—These mensches. Look at them starting out by thanking the navy folks for their service. #Bless
—Jay’s scoop (0:16). Dead. Re-record the album and do a write-in Tony nomination.
—Did Clyde always look like Don Draper or is this Mad Men finale mania?
—Tony Yazbeck is a treasure. End of story.
—Own it, Megan Fairchild; it’s really so great having the girls added in like this.
—Mambo! Mambo! Go! (1:22)
—Wow, that flip at 1:43!! #FairchildForTheWin
—1:50 seconds in.
—But really, those orchestrations are absolutely everything.
—Yes to the principal six as they ease on down the road...but now rewind and watch it again just looking for Jackie Hoffman and Stephen DeRosa.
—And that leg!
—It’s time to revisit the Lyric Theatre and On the Town.
