saw wonderful town this weekend and it was about as fun and frothy as i hoped it would be. there were some weak spots in the book, but i have only unabashed raves for its star donna murphy who was completely magnetic and who has shot way up on my list of idols. she was intense and dramatic and completely captivating in sondheim’s passion, and is no less captivating in her wonderfully comic role in wonderful town. she has a distinctive voice, with a beautifully dark, resonant low range and yet she can toss off surprisingly brilliant high notes, and her physical comedy and comedic timing are accompanied by a natural charisma that has you enjoying every moment she’s onstage. here’s hoping she wins her third tony for this show — she deserves it! I HEART DONNA!! hahahaha …
