Ken kinda turned me off with Gettin’ the Band Back Together, especially when he put it in the script to warm up the audience before every performance. What show needs to promote itself after everyone’s in the seats?July 4, 2019 at 10:46 pm #1202962820
So far there are four new musicals coming to the Main Stem this season: Moulin Rouge!, Tina—The Tina Turner Musical, Jagged Little Pill and Girl from the North Country, all of which have score consisting mainly of reused music. Then there’s the Neil Diamond bio-musical coming to Broadway. Will there be a Best Score Tony this year? I hope The Secret Life of Bees comes to Broadway this season so there will be at least one new musical with an original score. Plus, it’s run is winding down and tickets are steep so if it came to Broadway I would be able to see it.June 27, 2019 at 2:19 pm #1202954169
I agree with Liza, Clapton and Stoppard, the others not so much.June 24, 2019 at 7:18 pm #1202950446
That updated list of 50 has nobody from opera, and left out names such as Spike Lee, Mark Morris and Jodie Foster.
I don’t think John Prine would get in, he’s not a big enough name.June 7, 2019 at 2:39 pm #1202927499
The four frontrunners for acting in a musical-Fontana, Block, De Shields and Stroker-each won Drama Desks.June 5, 2019 at 7:35 am #1202924391
Plus what about the 1986 revival of Sweet Charity that brought the show a new audience?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 25, 2019 at 6:38 pm #1202910842
I think Kiss Me, Kate will win for Best Choreography, they had great dancing instead of just stylized movement.May 25, 2019 at 11:06 am #1202910260
I don’t see Ain’t Too Proud winning anything, so it could tie The Scottsboro Boys and Mean Girls at 0-12.May 25, 2019 at 10:25 am #1202910191
I understand you have strong feelings about certain performers you think should receive the honor. However, there are many deserving performers and only five slots each year, so not everybody will or should get in. Chaka Khan has had a long career of course, still that alone is not enough.May 24, 2019 at 12:18 pm #1202907286
Not to mention the 1974 Gypsy revival that starred Angela Lansbury.May 23, 2019 at 9:40 pm #1202906556
This list doesn’t go far back enough. What about the 1971 revival of No, No, Nanette? Or the 1983 revival of On Your Toes? Or the 1987 Anything Goes?May 23, 2019 at 9:33 pm #1202906554
This Sunday is the last day of the season, right?
