5. Bernadette Peters, Sunday in the Park with George
I don't think there's been a Broadway performance more moving than Bernadette Peters in Sunday In The Park With George. She charmed with her quirky kewpie antics in the opening number and then melted our hearts as Mandy Patinkin's George broke hers. By the time she tore into Act One's climactic "We Do Not Belong Together," we were leaning all the way forward in our seats and ready to be belted out of them. As if that weren't enough, Act Two's "Move On" picked up where "We Do Not Belong Together" had left off and ascended into musical theatre Nirvana. Thank you, Bernadette.
