Findlay High School alum Gavin Creel was nominated for a Tony Award as Featured Actor in a musical. He plays Claude in the revival of the musical “Hair”. Creel didn’t win the award on Sunday but the show won Best Revival and he and the cast performed the song “Hair” during the broadcast on CBS. Here is a clip I made of the performance.
Ilove musicals. As a kid in school I participated in them when I could. I couldn’t sing or dance but to be around them during productions was fun. The only professional musical I’ve seen in person was “Phantom of the Opera” in Toronto 10 years ago. My favorites are “Guys and Dolls” and “Chicago”.
I liked “Chicago” because of the 1920’s vibe and and the music was great.
For this weekend’s ear candy selection I picked the song “Cell Block Tango” from the movie version. It blew me away when I saw it on the big screen.
