Forgotten Broadway: Five Tony-Winning Showstoppers You’ve Probably Never Seen

“Where You Are” from Kiss of the Spider Woman (1993)

A slice of escapist heaven, Spider Woman swept the Tonys, winning Best Musical, Best Book (Terrence McNally), Best Original Score (John Kander and Fred Ebb), Best Actor (Brent Carver) and Best Actress (Chita Rivera). In this absolutely kick-ass showstopper, Brent Carver’s character explains how he deals with the horrors of prison life: escaping into musical fantasies starring Rivera! I could totally do 5 to 10 if I had Chita by my side.
