The rules are simple: When Tyne Daly performs on a Broadway stage, you go, and this season is no exception. The Tony and six-time(!) Emmy Award-winning star is giving an unforgettable performance as Mrs. Katharine Gerard, the formidable mother who drops in unexpectedly on her dead son's former lover and his new family, in Terrence McNally's new play Mothers and Sons.
While most recognizable for her work on TV's Cagney & Lacey, Christy and Judging Amy or her acclaimed performances in Broadway's Gypsy, Rabbit Hole and Master Class, Daly has enjoyed a career that's spanned over 50 years...and in that time, a ridiculous yet amazing YouTube or four is bound to surface. And BroadwayBox is bound to spotlight them.
Kicking it off is Tyne Daly as Harriet Hill in The Music Man singing "Trouble." #TonyAwardsAllAround
Tyne Daly + Dolly Parton on The Dolly Show created a musical moment that defies description. So click play.
What's great about this video is how drastically Tyne changes her signature sound for this Betty Boop-inspired performance. Just wild!
This isn't ridiculous as much as just fabulous. A younger, blonde Tyne previews what would go on to become one of the greatest Madame Rose performances in theater history.
Don't miss the one-and-only Tyne Daly in Broadway's Mothers and Sons, because, as these videos hoped to prove, the woman could do no wrong.
