Here are our performance highlights from Monday’s Henry Awards, including Outstanding Actress winner Beth Malone, who came home from her night off in Broadway’s Fun Home the Musical to sing from the DCPA’s The Unsinkable Molly Brown, which later was named Outstanding Musical. She sang from the songs “I Ain’t Down Yet” and “Wait for Me.”
Also featured are Colin Hanlon of The DCPA’s The 12, The Henrys’ Outstanding New Play or Musical. He sang the song “Three Times (I Denied).”
The Town Hall Arts Center showcased both its Outstanding Musical nominee Anything Goes (“Blow, Gabriel Blow, featuring Norrell Moore and trumpeter Michael Skillern) as well as Outstanding Actor in a Musical Nominee Tim Howard, who performed “I Believe in You” from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
