She's already an EGOT...

 

Maybe she wants to... PRODUCE? LOL. There are lots of incentives for producing, and Hudson has shown she wants to try as many things as possible.

Would Heather Headley Have Won the Tony if She Had Opened in THE COLOR PURPLE?

TaffyDavenport said: "As Heather Headley's concert at Carnegie Hall approaches, I was thinking about the 2016 Tonys. Would her triumphant return to Broadway have been enough to beat Renée Elise Goldsberry, or was Hamilton too much of an unstoppable force that year, with only Cynthia Erivo able to prevent a sweep of the acting categories?

I don't usually post hypothetical questions like this, but I'm curious to hear people's thoughts.

They brought back "Ms. Celie's Blues" from the original movie. I much prefer that song anyway.

I'm happy to see "Miss Celie's Blues" and "Maybe God Is Tryin' To Tell You Somethin'" from the original movie are in this!

ONCE UPON A ONE MORE TIME Broadway Previews Thread

Jordan Catalano said: "Are they planning a huge ad/promo blitz for Pride? Because if any show could benefit from Pride month in NYC right now, it’d be that one."

They've been comping virtually everyone in queer nightlife over the last few weeks. But I doubt it's translating into good word of mouth.

ElephantLoveMedley said: "Wow! Who is taking and releasing these photos? I wonder if this is production's way of trying to get people who are complaining about the darkness of the photos from yesterday to shut up, because those photos on set are certainly as bright and colorful as you can get."

They're filming outdoors, it's unavoidable. Likely the reason they released those still yesterday.

Viola Davis Becomes an EGOT With Grammy Win

JanMaxwellsBag said: "Whoopi joined the Millie producing teamearly in it’s development,years before it even had any fully staged production.

But also, who cares? They put up some money! Let them get a Tony it’s not that deep.

I love award shows. I love red carpets. I love crazy speeches. I also acknowledge that winning a major award can open doors for people to get projects made and themselves cast in things. But, to quote Ms. Heidi N Closet, “At the end of the day it doesn’t fvcking matter!”
"

Right? It's just a statue, and a few days in the press that most people will forget in a week.

Congrats to Viola Davis. What a career (so far)!

It was 2018's best-selling album worldwide, beating all releases including all pop-music albums. Everyone sang This Is Me & A Million Dreams and wore Barnum's red jacket to ape The Greatest Show

Exactly. I'm agreeing with you. Despite a lot of negative critical reaction, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN was a pretty big success.

I got to see it again, and I'll say I found it MUCH more enjoyable now. I was able to focus on the story rather than compare it in my head to the original. I think the film is stunning.

I saw it last night and loved it. I think I'd love it more if I had never seen the show. They're very different. Subplots are missing. Character dynamics have shifted. Storylines are altered, along with the context for a lot of the songs.

I feel like I'll appreciate it more upon second viewing in a large theater.

All of the musical numbers and performances are exceptional, though.

Love both trailers. The second one really got me, though. I can't wait for this.

The just-off casting, the merely competent director, the material, the quick turnaround... it just all looks like a series of red flags to me.

(I also think that we'll see the criticisms of Evan Hansen as a character and the plot itself expand greatly, just as the filmed Hamilton saw the increase of criticism of the material Anecdotally, I'
