“But with And the Tony Goes To… the Chorus may have raised its own bar. Because kicking off DC Pride Week was as thrilling and moving a musical tribute to the LGBTQ movement as anyone could wish for.” – John Stoltenberg, DC Metro Theater Arts
Theater critic John Stoltenberg gave a rave review to GMCW’s production of And the Tony Goes To… , which ran June 3-4 at the Lincoln Theatre. The concert traced the LGBTQ movement as seen through the Broadway musical and celebrated the contributions of LGBTQ artists to the world of theater.
“The concept (credited to the late visionary director John Moran) was dubbed ‘a musical history of gay Broadway,’ a tagline that barely begins to say what was so extraordinary about the event. Introducing the program, Artistic Director Theo Kano (wearing a shimmering gold sheath) explained (I’m paraphrasing) that the concert would illuminate the two-way influence of musical theater on the movement and of the movement on musical theater. And wow, did that brilliant idea make for some uplifting singing and stirring storytelling.”
