2024 Pulitzer Prize Predictions
 May 6 2024, 01:56:24 PM

The way that it works is simple, but obscured to the public. A play is eligible if it had a production in the calendar year, AND it has to be manually submitted to the committee for consideration, usually by the producing entity of the play.

For example, The Minutes was able to be selected in 2018 because Steppenwolf submitted the literature for the play with their production in 2017. Something like Manahatta most likely was not submitted until the 2023 calendar year because t

JK Rowling Concerns

J.K. Rowling is the face of the TERF movement. There is no person alive who is more synonymous with transphobia and the hatred of trans people.

Really, this play? It's paper thin, and mostly undramatic.

King Lear, Kenneth Branagh – The Shed, 2024

The tragedy of this production is that it's depriving New York of Patrick Page's Lear, which was the most astonishing acting performance I think I've ever seen.

Any actual "lefty liberal" would not use the word "woke" as a pejorative.

Wardelljclark2018 said: "The response from dear friends, artist in the community, and at large have been overwhelming to this production. You come on this board, and mostly complaints...its fascinating,"

It's a time-honored tradition. White shows are "surprisingly good" whereas Black shows are "disappointing".

In reality, Robert O'Hara's production is spectacular, with dozens of artists performing at an insanely hi

OhHiJohnny said: "Unless Suffs has really done extensive enough work to be the next Hamilton, or Lempicka has a Wicked sized fandom spring forth, this will 100% be the big winner of the season.

100% agree. The night I saw it the audience was openly weeping by the end. Talk about a money printing machine.

Who's "Lucas"?

Hedges, son of Peter Hedges.

Baz should seriously consider suing for stealing his visual concept. Given that the projections were clearly AI-generated, it's not unbelievable that they pulled directly from his film.

Thought this was outstanding overall, and am very excited to go back later in the run. It's sort of a demented parody of Foote's Dividing the Estate or Letts' August: Osage County, with BJJ's typical snarling nastiness upping the stakes to truly absurd degrees of cruelty. There's almost a Real Housewives or Jerry Springer quality to the amount of debasement we have to watch these characters go through: it's both delicious and genuinely upsetting.

The ending of this version of the show is significantly different from the original, which concluded with Ruthie and Harry walking offstage hand-in-hand.
