I know you guys are thinking that I think Aladdin is going to Win a Tony for Best Musical, well, I’m not. Aladdin is not going to win for Best Musical, because the Tony voters hates Disney. The Lion King is the only Disney musical they like and nothing else. Newsies should of won, but no, they decide to give it to that boring musical, Once. If this keeps happeninh when Hunchback and Frozen came to Broadway never recieve a Tony for Best Musical, then they need to stop adaprting movies and create their own musical. Like based on plays, novels or orignal ideas. That’ll give them more Tony Awards than ever. In the end, thet Tony Voter are nothing but a bunch if anti-Disney jerks. When will they give Disney another Tony for Best Musical?
Who said Aladdin is going to win Best Musical?
Considering the reviews it got, the Tony voters were VERY generous to Newsies. I wouldn’t have given it anything except maybe set design. And no new Disney musicals since The Lion King have been worthy of the title of Best Musical (and even Lion King is a stretch considering the fact that it was up against Ragtime), though I do think Mary Poppins was brilliantly done. Haven’t seen Aladdin yet.
Why do you keep posting the same thread about Disney and the Tonys?
Who on this site has said aladdin is winning Best Musical?? Iglehart will win featured actor, but I would be surprised if it managed anything else. Im not sure how they are “anti-Disney jerks” considering Aladdin has 6 tony nominations. Not to mention past best musical nominations for Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins, and Newsies. Those shows also managed at least one win each. Aida was also a Disney produced musical and managed 4 Tony Awards (out of 5 nominations) including Score and Actress. So, your rant doesnt really hold water.
As for when they will give Disney a Best Musical Tony…they’ll do it when one is worthy of it.
“Newsies should of won, but no, they decide to give it to that boring musical, Once.”
I’ve officially heard it all.
I honestly feel no Disney musical has deserved to win….I think Beauty and The Beast comes the closest for me if only for its source material and entertainment value (PASSION was a stunning show visually with a great book and performances but was kind of slow)…and The Lion King had impressive visuals/costumes/staging….and it winning over RAGTIME is atrocious.
Since then, Tarzan and Little Mermaid were snubbed for good reason and Mary Poppins, coming from a huge fan of the books and movie, really disappointed me.
Newsies was indeed lucky to get what it received and the only reason it won Score was because of lack of competition (I would sooner give Wildhorn the Tony for his work on Bonnie & Clyde which featured his best music for Broadway to date after such trainwrecks).
Aladdin is a fine show, but nowhere near the level of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder.
