What B’way (or West End) Show Would You to See?

If you could go back in time for an evening—with the right clothes and a good seat!—what show would you have absolutely killed to have seen? For me, I think it’s—

Anna Held in Miss Innocence (1908) or The Parisian Model (1906).

The Ziegfeld Follies of of 1917 (with Fanny Brice, Eddie Cantor, W.C. Fields, Lilyan Tashman, Will Rogers, and Bert Williams!).

Ethel Merman in Gypsy (1959).

Andre Charlot’s Revue of 1924 (with Bea Lillie, Jack Buchanan, Gertie Lawrence).

The first night of Oklahoma (1943).

Savoy and Brennan in the Greenwich Village Follies of 1920 or ’23.

I’m not moving back in time as far as you are, Eve, but I’d have liked to see John Cameron Mitchell perform in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Or Jennifer Holliday in Dreamgirls(1981)

“Sing out, Louise!” - Gypsy has my vote. Ethel Merman doing “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” would have been worth the price of admission.

Also, “Streetcar Named Desire” with Jessica Tandy.

I’d see the opening performance of Rent, which must have been an incredibly emotional show, given that the author had died the day before (or something along those lines)
