Lots of ingenues have won in all of the general field categories. Billie Eilish is no different.June 18, 2019 at 3:48 pm #1202943414
Very interesting that Katori Hall is a member given that she is one of the three co-book writers behind Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, which is coming to Broadway this fall.
She’ll most likely recuse herself for the musical categories or she’ll only be able to vote in the play categories.June 17, 2019 at 9:45 am #1202941657
You Need To Calm Down is a great video. I think one of her best. It makes me like the song more. I still think this album will suck.June 16, 2019 at 2:20 am #1202940194
Chernobyl has been getting amazing writeups:June 15, 2019 at 12:40 pm #1202939458
Apparently Lover already leaked:

Smithereens was definitely the best out of the three. I thought Striking Vipers and Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too were terrible. Striking Vipers had a great premise about black masculinity, but was totally ruined by horrible writing in the end. The Miley episode was just awful all the way around, except for the On A Roll song. I can’t stop listening to it. Smithereens was classic Black Mirror. Loved everything about the episode.June 14, 2019 at 7:46 am #1202937616
I really had high hopes for Taylor’s new album, but so far the songs suck. Maybe she should go back to her country roots.June 13, 2019 at 8:23 am #1202935983
Could someone please refresh my memory whether Kerry Butler was in contention for a nomination as Barbara in Beetlejuice (the Geena Davis role)? Was her name in-the-mix?
The only female who was in contention for a nomination from Beetlejuice was Leslie Kritzer. A lot of people thought she would be nominated.June 12, 2019 at 7:46 pm #1202935287
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-block
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).June 11, 2019 at 4:38 pm #1202933532
Jeffrey Kare, remind me, who was the first person way back when to predict Hadestown would sweep the Tonys before it even opened? And who said Tootsie’s only saving grace was its book before it even opened? And who was only ONLY ONE predicting Andre De Shields when he wasn’t even in people’s top 5? And who said The Ferryman would win before it even came to Broadway? I could go on and on and on and on… but I just needed a reminder who the king is on these boards.June 10, 2019 at 2:43 am #1202930540
I think those of us still predicting Amber were in denial. Stroker had too many things going for her–in the Revival frontrunner (and the only way they could reward it in the acting categories, since nobody was gonna beat Santino), gave an amazing performance, and is visibly disabled. That last one sounds awful, I know, but it can’t be ignored as a reason somebody could vote for her.
Anyway, I know she and Amber will both have long careers, so I just gotta wait for the queen to get hers.
Ali Stroker is I’m sure great in the show (she was out when I saw it), but Tony voters obviously wanted a moment and couldn’t resist voting for her for it. Amber Gray definitely should have won, but I’m not mad at Stroker’s win. I’m sure it will change the life of at least one disabled person watching and dreaming they could be her one day.June 9, 2019 at 9:00 pm #1202930335
The show kind of bored me this year. I’m glad I was right months ago, as Jeffrey Kare can attest, about Hadestown (almost) sweeping the Tonys. I’m sad I didn’t get to see The Boys in the Band when it was on Broadway, but I’m happy it won. If only Fiddler transferred to Broadway this season it would’ve been such a worthy Revival winner. I also called The Ferryman’s Tony win after I saw it in London a year and a half ago. Now onto next year where The Inheritance will rightfully sweep the Tonys!June 9, 2019 at 6:20 am #1202929197
I’m keeping Laurie Metcalf in my top spot. She’s pulled off 2 surprise wins in a row and the academy clearly love her.
Lol, she has ZERO chance of winning. Elaine May is as big of a lock as you can get. IF there is an upset it would be Heidi Schreck, but that isn’t happening either. Metcalf’s two wins weren’t surprises, by the way.
