With so many reunions of former co-stars happening at different award shows, I thought it would be fun to start this discussion. Here are some ideas I came up with…
Len Cariou & Angela Lansbury (Sweeney Todd)
Michael Crawford & Sarah Brightman (The Phantom of the Opera)
Jonathan Groff & Lea Michele (Spring Awakening)
Nathan Lane & Matthew Broderick (The Producers)
Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked)
Bebe Neuwirth & Ann Reinking (Chicago)
Mandy Patinkin & Bernadette Peters (Sunday in the Park with George)
Andrew Rannells & Josh Gad (The Book of Mormon)
Dick Van Dyke & Chita Rivera (Bye Bye Birdie)
Marrisa Jaret Winokur & Harvey Fierstein (Hairspray)
So which former Broadway co-stars would you like to see reunite on the Tonys to present an award?
I would love to see
Kelli O’Hara and Matthew Morrison (The Light in the Piazza)
And, though they didn’t star in it together on Broadway, Sierra Boggess and Ramin Karimloo (Love Never Dies – West End) in some presentation about Phantom celebrating its 30 years on B’way.
Bernadette Peters and Martin Short (The Goodbye Girl)
I’ll repost when I come up with more! Love all of yours.
I would also recommend:
Chip Zien & Joanna Gleason (Into The Woods)
Danny Burstein & Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone)
