Rainah said: "in terms of reception/length of run, Comet. It truly wasn't the controversy that closed the show, the public just did not embrace it as much as it really deserved and they couldn't find their audience."
Yes, this is true, but it would not have ended that early if the controversy did not happen. Most importantly, it would not have ended the way it had, in a midst of a pointless controversy, to inflate some SJW's egos on twitter, that ove
| Fastest win to EGOT LMM or Pasek/Paul Jan 28
2018, 08:00:05 PM|
At this rate, I won’t be surprised if Pasek and Paul nabs the EGOT first. It frustrates me to no end, because, although I do think they are talented composers, their scores and lyrics are absolutely nothing special and quite repetitive. They are just brilliant in pandering to the mainstream audience AND finding collaborators whose works are much better than theirs (Chazelle for ‘La La Land’; Levenson’s book for DEH). And, yes, Lin has the PEGOT and that all what truly matters, no matter who get

I purchase my window card frames from Amazon. Here's the link:
You get two of them per bundle for $26. They fit perfectly for those 14x22 window cards, and they are also very, very light.

Lauren Zakrin as Natasha in Comet.
The first time I saw Comet (0 knowledge of the show), she was on, and I was blown away by her performance. I said to my friend, "SHE'S the understudy??"
I saw Denee when I saw Comet for the second time, but I still prefer Lauren as Natasha.

Eliminating/reducing “The Private and Intimate Life of the House” and “Natasha & Bolkonskys” in Great Comet. I’ve pondered and observed EVERY aspect of the show yet still can’t wrap my head on the importance of these two songs, especially the former. Maybe someone can help me out.
Also, cause I apparently have nothing better to do, I read the comments from Isherwood’s NY Time’s review of the show. Goddamn, people really need to grow a pair over the strobe lights thing. I sat on one of t

Thanks to the Smithsonian for doing something the Tonys, Grammys, and Broadway in general, failed to do: appeciate two geniuses.
Guess it really does take rocket science to figure that out.
Looking forward to those instagram stories from the cast again. It’s been too long.

This is one of the best comments I've read on this message board. Kudos to you, sir.
And they took it from three DIFFERENT people as well.

At this point, Great Comet not getting something/being robbed is so second nature to me that I feel nothing.
Once again, Come From Away continues to get overwhelming praise that surprise me. (I could also add this isn’t the first time they’ve robbed Great Comet’s award (cough) rachel chavkin (cough), but that’s just me being incredibly salty)
I kept looking for a “see more” button on my phone till I realized it was only 3 nominees.

Sunday blows the others out of the water; it should win, and deservedly so.
Although deep down in my heart I hope Comet wins, or a nomination at least, so they can all get, especially Dave Malloy, something after they've been ****ed so hard at the Tonys (and everything that happened afterwards).
| Actors / Actresses that should've won a Tony Nov 23

christ, people, if you're so bothered by this thread then just move along.
The usual: Danny Burstein, Christopher Fitzgerald, Andy Karl (saw GHD with minimal expectations but was I blown away by his performance)
Rachel Bay Jones 100% deserves that Tony, but I will argue that Brittain Ashford should've been nominated until the day I die.
| Favorite Costumes on Broadway Nov 23
2017, 01:03:21 AM|
God bless you for opening this thread.
My favorite costume designers are currently Catherine Zuber and Paloma Young. Catherine Zuber is amazing for those old-fasion, classic revivals while Paloma Young tends to play around with more experimental stuff. I've never been disappointed with any of their designs even if I think the show itself is below subpar (Warpaint for Zuber; Bandstand for Young).
I think Paloma should've won the Tony
