Tonight’s stage performance of The Last of Us: One Night Live was weird, ramshackle, funny, and kinda unlike any video-game event I’ve seen. The best part, easily, was the musical number.
Most of us have already seen this funny musical “alternate ending” to the game, which was initially thrown together by the cast on the soundstage as they worked on the game. Tonight’s rendition benefitted greatly from a live audience, as well as from its two leads’ top-notch musical theatre training. Skip to 1:20 if you want to get right to the performance. Sing it, Mr. Baker!
Well, this whole thing has been great fun, hasn’t it? What an odd and charming celebration of a game. Cheers to everyone involved.
