The 75th Annual TONY Awards!

Chita looks absolutely amazing for being 89 years old

The 75th Annual TONY Awards!
 Jun 12 2022, 09:50:23 PM

Haven't been here in ages, I still hate this horrible update to the boards.

Also haven't seen any shows since covid started and nothing so far has really made me want to go see anything. Girl from the north country is the only one so far that I actually want to see at some point.

You clearly don't watch sports, there have been plenty of games canceled because of covid in the last year.

Agreed but I always feel Miranda is corny and it reaffirmed that freestyle love supreme is simply not for me.

​​​​​​She looks phenomenal for being 88, really cracked up at how she said she was thrilled that she could walk out and wasn't rolled out lol

Open letter to Broadway theatre owners and house managers -- TURN UP YOUR A/C!

This is why I wear shorts and comfortable clothes when it's still hot out. I'm always hot as it is and I can't stand how hot some of these theatres. I don't mind wearing a mask but if I had to sit in a hot theatre wearing one I'd be miserable.

This seems like it's going to be a huge financial mistake but hey it's not my money.

A Soldier's Play was the last show I saw before the shutdown. Really forgot how weak the play revivals were that this actually won.
ALL Broadway Theatres To Require Proof of Vaccination AND Masks inside

leefowler said: "Maybe I’m the only one here who feels this way, but I’m not interested in seeing a show if I have to wear a mask for 2 1/2 hours."

I'm with you, I already have the vaccine but I'll wait awhile because I simply don't enjoy spending money to wear a mask for hours when I already find most theatres to be too hot as it is. 

My other problem is too many of the new shows I haven't seen are about topics that aren&#

Masking isn't mandatory when seated. It's mandatoryuntil seated.

That could still change though. I’ll be donning my finest masks whatever shows I see in the future.

It's a bit over kill if everyone is vaccinated, can people

Washington Post on Broadway's Return
 Jul 15 2021, 02:46:38 PM

I'm local, pre covid we were always trying to see everything that opens on Broadway that wasn't a concert. Neither of us have much desire to sit inside a crowded theatre that almost always has cramped seats next to strangers right away so I don't see us seeing anything until at least 2022.

We usually go into a lot of shows with a simple plot summary and don't read reviews, I'd say I would end up hating or thinking they were a waste of my time for about 40% of th

CT2NYC said: "A couple of friends went to the sold-out Foo Fighters show at MSG last night. Vaccinations were required, but no masks or social distancing, which sends the message that, if you're vaccinated, it's time to get back to normal in NYC.



I don't think it's gonna last long, Yankee stadium and citi field just dropped the vaccine proof or negative test requirements. I know they are outdoor events but I don't think

Andrew Lloyd Webber Threatens to Defy UK Government to Reopen Theatres at Full Capacity

Sunny11 said: "What was the method used that reached the conclusion that the events where not spreader events though?Was every customer tested biweekly for a month afterwards?

Many cases are asymptomatic so people may not have realised that they had it. At my hospital every staff member is aggressively tested and young 20/30 something colleagues in particularregularly test positive by surprise.

I have noticed a lot of government and business gaslighting by proclaiming low covid rates when actually their methodology is full of holes.

Not gonna act like I know how they figure all this stuff out but the CDC has ways to track all this stuff and haven't said anything about it happening yet. If it did they would most likely release a report about it like they did with that large motorcycle event Sturgis in South Dakota...

Is that how it SHOULD be? Yes absolutely. Will it be? No...

I'm not so sure. Multiple shows are requiring vaccines and, to my knowledge, no Broadway show has said they are not. We have a lot of experience now with baseball, and the segregated test-instead-of-vaccine sections ar

Have I missed an announcement?

I know I'm supposed to be patient on this issue, both with local theaters and Broadway. I know it's supposed to all work out. Whatever. Give me the assurance I want.

Nothing official yet but the situation can also change by S

I love digital rush and lottos and hope they all go this route, it beats wasting your time for no reason going to and being outside a theatre just to not get any tickets.
