Anthony Warlow makes his Broadway debut
“Oh, he’s such a dreamboat,” said Tony award winner Katie Finneran (Miss Hannigan) moments after stepping off the Palace Theatre stage on Broadway. The American star of stage and screen was speaking of Australian musical veteran Anthony Warlow, who realised a dream by finally treading the boards on Broadway as Oliver Warbucks in the new production of Annie.
He’s brought decades of experience, having starred in successful shows including Phantom of the Opera, My Fair Lady, Les Miserables and two seasons of Annie in Australia.
For the New York audience, the 50 year old was a newcomer, an unknown, however Warlow looked right at home, striding onto the stage with the swagger and confidence he’s built performing the role so many times. The locals I spoke with, bar two, had no clue he was Australian and hence were mightily impressed with his accent.
Finneran was full of praise. “He is just fantastic. He’s such a professional and so funny off-stage too. He’s really brought humanity and sensitivity to the show.”
The staging was simple. The children were adorable. The staging and performances were fine but keeping in mind it was the first preview, there’s some tweaking to be done. The cast received a standing ovation but on Broadway, apparently, that doesn’t really mean much.
Under the program’s section “Who’s who in the cast”, Warlow is described as being thrilled to be making his Broadway debut and that he is the recipient of numerous awards including “Living National Treasure.” He also graciously thanks American Actors’ Equity and dedicates his performance to Phoebe, his daughter.
Off-Broadway producer Peter Tear was amongst those checking out the family-friendly show. “Anthony is the best Daddy Warbucks I have ever seen. He’s the first one who can really sing. He’s also an actor and has plenty of presence. In two weeks (opening night), he’ll be fabulous.”
New Yorkers and Broadway are really in for a Treat to see the Amazingly Talented Anthony Warlow on their Stage. Chookas to all the Cast and Crew! Congratulations Anthony!!AnneMarie Rayward Thursday 4 October, 2012 - 8:17 PM
