Indeed. Though I think West Side Story would’ve easily gotten its revenge by winning Best Picture just due to how big of a sensation the 1961 film was when it came out.March 22, 2020 at 6:41 am #1203389902
Into The Woods all the way for me!! I fell in love with the show when my 8th grade music teacher showed our class the PBS production. And then, in 12th grade, Into The Woods was my school’s musical that year, and I was cast as one of the narrators (our director decided to expand the role of one narrator into six narrators, three boys and three girls).March 30, 2020 at 5:47 am #1203400793
While it’s probably gonna be a long wait until this pandemic clears up, something I am planning to keep everyone occupied in the meantime is more features in this series. Today, we’ll be talking about the year 2000.April 24, 2020 at 6:17 am #1203445138
Similar to how Kevin Jacobsen does a bonus series for ‘And the Runner-Up Is’ titled ‘How Did They Win?’, I’ve decided to try something similar with the Tony Awards. I’m very excited to launch a brand new series on Kare Reviews titled ‘Tonys Flashback’, where I take a deep dive into all of the nominees from any previous acting race at the Tony Awards. For the inaugural feature, we’ll be taking a look back at what ended up being a very competitive race from 2007.April 24, 2020 at 4:31 pm #1203446086
Today, we’ll be talking about 2007.
Thank you for sharing this. This was quite interesting. I saw the documentary Grey Gardens and the TV movie with Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore. I wish that I could have seen this version on Broadway.May 25, 2020 at 6:04 am #1203499622
I wonder what the one for this year will be.
I have now covered every single previous Best Musical race from the 21st century (so far). Though if you extend it out into the 1990s, I’ve covered the last 22 Tony races. I settled on Tootsie as the likely runner-up from 2019.May 25, 2020 at 2:34 pm #1203500344
Last year I indeed predicted Tootsie to be the runner up because of my correct predictions about Santino Fontana and Robert Horn’s respective wins. However, I’m surprised you forgot to mention how Hadestown made history with Jessica Paz being the first ever female sound designer to be nominated for and win a Tony. You could have referenced that fact in a footnote.May 25, 2020 at 4:18 pm #1203500420
I wouldn’t say I forgot, it just wasn’t anything I necessarily planned on doing. Though something I am planning to do at some point is a bonus series where I talk about the musical that might’ve finished in third place, but people argue could’ve been the runner-up. There, I’d be taking a deep dive into shows like The Prom, The Great Comet, Something Rotten!, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and The Secret Garden.June 6, 2020 at 11:35 pm #1203519973
Let me know when you’ve done one for Dreamgirls.
Who am I? You'll find out soon. Ciao, for now!June 7, 2020 at 5:11 am #1203520159
^It’s definitely in the works.
