Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"The Revolutionary Costume For Today" (Christine Ebersole, Grey Gardens at the Drama Desk Awards)
Ulterior Motives: The acclaimed cult favorite Grey Gardens opened on this date in 2006 at Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre, where its Tony-winning pair of leading ladies (Ebersole and Mary Louise Wilson) gave performances fans are still talking about a full decade later.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: The two-timing Tony winner (who returns this season in War Paint) absolutely shines in every moment, but if I had to pick one, I love her reading the newspaper article about herself (1:38).
