    Grr…I’m glad it’s back, but Hamilton would have tied The Producers’ record if it hadn’t been removed in the first place.

    Amazing! If the production is the least bit competent, should be a guaranteed nomination for Jackson, who has been Tony-nominated for every single Broadway appearance thus far.

    Shocked The Band’s Visit lost after winning the NY Drama Critics Circle, Outer Critics, and beating Dear Evan Hansen at the Lucille Lortell Awards. Good for Indecent, though.

    It looks like it will try the strategy of opening in the fall and showing its strength all the way through to the Tonys. I’m very excited for it in the Fall because all of the buzz will be on Harry Potter in the Spring so I think it’s a smart strategy.

    I’m excited to see it! I have high hopes for it and its star-Katrina Lenk. I think she should’ve been nominated for Indecent as she gives an incendiary performance. I saw her way back in Once and she was amazing. I’m so happy she’s getting these amazing roles. Hoping she’s rewarded with at least a nomination next year.

    I’m thrilled about this news! I saw it at the Atlantic and absolutely loved it. I’m a big fan of Yazbek (especially his underrated score for Women on the Verge) and I think this one is his best yet. Fingers crossed most of the original cast comes to Broadway, especially Katrina Lenk; she’s easily a Tony nominee next year for this role!

    I’m planning on seeing this in December. For those who already have, how similar in tone is it to Come From Away? They seem to have similar premises–stranded travelers relying on the hospitality of the locals.

    I’ve loved Yazbek’s work in the past.
