Not to mention that Jitney won Best Revival of a Play in 2017, John Legend, who was one of the co-producers, didn’t give a speech either. Though it at least got him the T in his EGOT.April 13, 2022 at 9:35 am #1204915604April 13, 2022 at 9:37 am #1204915606April 14, 2022 at 6:10 pm #1204917379

I’m sure the producers, who actually got the show to Broadway, made sure he wouldn’t take the limelight or the credit for the show.April 15, 2022 at 1:47 pm #1204918194April 17, 2022 at 7:37 pm #1204921025
On March 12th, 2020, Tracy Letts’ new play, The Minutes, was a few days away from opening when performances all over the New York theatre district got suspended because of COVID-19. Now over two years later, The Minutes has finally opened on Broadway. Critics are chiming in with some mostly glowing reviews.April 18, 2022 at 1:44 pm #1204922275April 18, 2022 at 3:53 pm #1204922448
Saw Plaza Suite last week… it doesn’t even matter that the play is fine; SJP and Matthew are so charming together and so enjoying being on stage with one another that I think the nominations are locked up. His and hers should be no issue. The costume design and set dec was also superb.
Also caught Macbeth. I don’t know why I didn’t expect it to be so black box… and has anyone seen the actual ensemble together? Real covid issues there… nevertheless Daniel and Ruth are magnificent, powerful and have great chemistry. Ruth especially absolutely explodes off the stage.April 19, 2022 at 7:08 pm #1204924288
Paula Vogel’s How I Learned to Drive has finally premiered on Broadway. I must say that COVID-19 delaying the production might’ve been the best thing to have happened to Mary-Louise Parker because she only got to contend (and win) for The Sound Inside at the previous Tony Awards. Now, it looks like she’ll become the very first performer to have won Best Lead Actress in a Play two years in a row.April 20, 2022 at 7:32 am #1204924692April 20, 2022 at 8:08 am #1204924732
Paradise Square is always being offered on Theatermania Gold Club, so they’re papering the house almost every night, which can’t be a good sign.April 20, 2022 at 6:54 pm #1204925473

After having previously been in previews for a brief period of time over two years ago, Martin McDonagh’s new play, Hangmen, was one of the first Broadway shows to announce that they were not coming back following the shutdown of performances due to COVID-19. Yet, the play has returned to the Great White Way. It has officially opened, and the overall critical response has been mixed-to-positive.April 22, 2022 at 8:08 pm #1204928163Not now
