So. I have been neglecting this blog for far too long! I definitely need to remember to check in here more often to record my thoughts about the performances I see.
As a brief update, some of the most recent productions I have seen feature three women I am fairly certain will be battling it out for Tony’s this year. Cynthia Nixon in ‘Wit,’ and Rosemary Harris in, ‘The Road to Mecca,’ both blew me away. They are each master classes in balanced, perfect-pitch performances with range and journey. I was left rather breathless by both performances. Similarly, Rachel Griffiths in, ‘Other Desert Cities,’ although of less impact, certainly commanded the stage. I would think she will be nominated either for best actress or — since ‘Cities’ is an ensemble cast — as best featured.
