I think Bandstand might’ve taken it.
That’s my point! Bandstand or Anastasia being nominated for Best Musical would have been awful. Again, it’s the best of the worst. Exactly the reason there should be 4 nominees and only a fifth if it gets enough votes.April 29, 2019 at 3:19 pm #1202872969
I don’t think Be More Chill is that bad. Maybe not as good as The Prom, Hadestown, or Tootsie, but there have been far worse shows this season.May 9, 2019 at 8:04 pm #1202887458

This Sunday is the last day of the season, right?May 24, 2019 at 5:13 am #1202906695
It depends how you define the season. The season as defined by Tony eligibility ended April 25. The season as defined by box office weeks for year-over-year reporting and comparisons ends this Sunday, 5/26.May 28, 2019 at 6:56 am #1202913302
I thought of the season as defined by box office weeks. Technically, Hair opened at the end of the 1967-1968 season, after the Tonys cutoff date, so it wasn’t eligible for the 1968 Tonys, which was a shame because it was a weak season and Hair could have won, but instead had to compete with Promises, Promises and 1776. The same thing happened in 1972 with Don’t Bother Me, I Can’t Cope, as it was the second-longest running musical of the 1971-1972 season, but opened after the cutoff date and had to go up against Pippin and A Little Night Music.May 31, 2019 at 3:34 pm #1202918387

Although she didn’t appear at the Tonys like some hoped she would, Cher did attend last night’s performance of The Cher Show. http://www.playbill.com/article/cher-cheers-on-the-cher-show-tony-winner-stephanie-j-blockJune 12, 2019 at 7:46 pm #1202935287

I don’t think she was there. She just shared a video from the first performance since SJB won the Tony (probably shot by someone from the production team).
