Absolutely fantastic. It's to be expected, with a cast like this, but they surpassed my
expectations. Neil Patrick Harris was crystal clear, and conveyed both Bobby's veneer of emotional detachment and his underlying frustration effortlessly. It's a treat to see Stephen Colbert stretch beyond the Colbert Report, and he was given a largely straight dramatic role throughout, with most of his comedy being physical stuff he doesn't often do. Not Getting Married is always a highlight of the show, and it was no different here.
The moment that really surprised me (and probably only me) was Patti LuPone's The Ladies Who Lunch. I never quite saw LuPone in the same light as most people, perhaps because I hadn't had the opportunity to see her on stage. It was only after I saw her performance here that I understood just how good she truly is. Her delivery in this song conveyed Joanne's recognition of her own brokenness in a way I'd never quite heard before.
Brilliant. Highly recommended.
