  1. Agree about Annie, if anything, Cinderella could be a spoiler, since that has growing support, especially for Osnes. Also, the Best Featured Actor in a Play race is waaay too close to call for Burstein. Honestly, it’s a four-way gallop to the end of all the eligible males, minus Magnussen. And, the predix aren’t giving nearly enough credit to the passion behind the scenes for Tracy Letts’ George– he did just win the Drama Desk over both Hanks and Lane, and the former has yet to win ANY major precursor awards. If he does win, it’s completely political (as in the glad-handing way, not the actual politics way).

  2. Pippin is a lock, but if any show is a spoiler it’s Drood. Cinderella and Annie were virtually panned.
