TODAY Show “Best of Broadway” Week 2024
 May 16 2024, 01:16:17 PM

Maryann Plunkett is so good even without words. That performance alone is Tony-worthy.


City Centers 24-25: Ragtime, Urinetown, LaChiusa's Wild Party, Love Life
 May 14 2024, 12:48:21 PM

LaChiusa’s Wild Party! This lineup is sensational, but I’m especially excited about the (superior) WP getting this kind of treatment. 


Adam Guettel deserves to win
 May 12 2024, 11:43:28 AM

I personally think there should have been seasons other than 2021 where a nominated play deserved the Tony. That said, I think Guettel’s score is quite an achievement and an artistic triumph. I would not be sad at a Stereophonic win, however. 


The 77th Annual Tony Award Nominations for 2024
 May 3 2024, 03:45:36 PM

I can’t see Eddie winning, especially being a previous winner with two presumed frontrunners still waiting for their first win. I’ve got my fingers crossed for Brian d’Arcy James, who is on his fifth nomination without a win, but this is most likely going to Jonathan Groff for a lauded performance in the more-liked show among these three. I also wouldn’t mind seeing Dorian Harewood win for a subtle yet heartbreaking performance.


77th Tony Awards Performance Predictions

I imagine Illinoise will do “Chicago” as it’s the most famous song from the album.


Best Group of Best Musical Nominees
 Apr 30 2024, 08:15:39 PM

2005 immediately popped into my head, but looking back, 1976 is a really great crop. I’d throw in 1957 (My Fair LadyBells Are RingingCandideThe Most Happy Fella) and 2002 (Thoroughly Modern MillieMamma Mia!Sweet Smell of SuccessUrinetown).

One thing's for sure about orchestrations: They do love when you can see the musicians.

Days of Wine and Roses missing in Book and Orchestrations is a headscratcher. Suffs and The Notebook missing in Orchestrations also. Maybe we need to get more experts in orchestration on the nominating committee.

Omg Ricky Ubeda snub


The 77th Annual Tony Award Nominations for 2024
 Apr 30 2024, 08:58:33 AM

Also sad Days of Wine and Roses didn't get in for Best Musical. I hope Actor and Actress are between the couples from DOWAR and The Notebook. Justice for BDJ!


The 77th Annual Tony Award Nominations for 2024
 Apr 30 2024, 08:49:48 AM

We've already seen a tie in Leading Actress in a Play, given that we have 5 nominees. I wonder if we'll see that in other categories.

It looks like they've nominated a bunch of pairs already (Ryan/Schreiber, O'Hara/James, Rankin/Redmayne, Plunkett/Harewood). Maybe we will see Amber Iman since they didn't shut out Lempicka?


Drama Desk Nominations ‘24
 Apr 29 2024, 01:12:22 PM

I know the Drama Desks do their own thing (and shows like Suffs, Merrily, and Here Lies Love were eligible for categories in other years), but for reference, here is the overlap of who is eligible tomorrow:


Musical
Illinoise
The Outsiders

Play
Jaja’s African Hair Braiding
Mother Play
Stereophonic

Revival of a M


Drama Desk Nominations ‘24
 Apr 29 2024, 01:06:31 PM

The Distinctive Baritone said: "This year, maybe the Tonys should do what the Pulitzer Prizes sometimes do for theDrama categoryand just not give a Best Musical award, lol."

They've tried this in the past for categories like Book of a Musical, and public outcry pressured them into including the category after the initial nominations.


Drama Desk Nominations ‘24
 Apr 29 2024, 12:35:59 PM

I hope this is a slam dunk for Jaja's African Hair Braiding in the Wig and Hair category. Wish they could share in a costume nomination at the Tonys since the hair was integral to the storytelling and also quite magical to have pulled off in full view of the audience.

MemorableUserName said: "Also noteworthy that they put Ubeda in Lead and Plunkett and Harewood in Featured, unlike the Tonys. Theseseemto make more sense IMO."

I know the Drama Desks do whatever they want, but these placements do make more sense. Still hoping to see all three tomorrow morning.

Thrilled for (the probably little-seen) Lizard Boy for getting some big nominations in Musical, Music, and Book. I'm happy these awards get to hig


2024 Tony Predictions
 Apr 29 2024, 11:53:09 AM

I don't think anyone is arguing whether or not Here Lies Love has a book/structure. However, the official opening night credits don't include a bookwriter, and the Tony eligibility rulings didn't clarify that the show is eligible for Best Book (they've made more obvious clarifications like Des McAnuff being eligible for directing Tommy and Joseph Joubert being eligible for The Wiz's orchestrations).


2024 Tony Predictions
 Apr 29 2024, 02:00:45 AM

The nominating committee does have a Tony Nominating Meeting. They are allowed to have a two-hour discussion about candidates in all categories but are supposedly not allowed to informally discuss how voting will go. They then submit secret ballots in all categories.


2024 Tony Predictions
 Apr 28 2024, 11:31:23 PM

I think an Elizabeth A. Davis-like nomination could go to Ricky Ubeda’s Illinoise castmate (and fellow SYTYCD winner) Gaby Diaz. If she and Ben Cook get nominated, Illinoise could be the one to beat.


farewell Kimmy!
 Apr 28 2024, 08:44:49 PM

I was there today, my first time seeing the show since last May. It was so nice to be there and bid farewell to a show that everyone in the audience loved just as much. I’m surprised everyone kept it together as much as they did, but once Bonnie broke during her reprise of “This Time,” everyone knew the end was nigh and you could hear audible crying throughout the rest of the show. “Great Adventure” is just about the perfect song for a show to go out on with


2024 Tony Predictions
 Apr 25 2024, 09:54:14 PM

I’m not sure it’s eligible since there’s no credited bookwriter and the Tony eligibility meeting didn’t specify anything about the book, meaning it will go by opening night credits.
