Only if it wins Best Picture, or he wins Best Actor.
"

Couldn't it get nominations for Score and Song? And then LMM would win an EGOT if he won those.
"

No, the score and song have to be written specifically for the film to be eligible. The current rules are "an original song consists

schubox said: "Speaking to that, how does this affect the stage show when it opens back up. Who is going to be lining up to see the stage show now that this copy exists? I kind of burned myself out seeing it three times in the opening year, but could have seen myself revisiting it on a tour or something in a few years. But why would I spend hundreds of dollars on that when this definitive version exists?"

It's inevitable that it will have some effect, and the mak

Take Me Out Revival!  Jun 27 2020, 09:54:11 AM

I hadn't seen this article from a few days ago (6/24). Sounds like everyone is still onboard, for whenever it can happen.

For the Actors of ‘Take Me Out,’ a Coming-Out Party Is Postponed

Second Stage remains committed. And the actors, so far, have all agreed to return. “I’m going to do this play,” Williams said. “I’ve made that clear.&rdquo

This took place yesterday (Wednesday). Scroll up. It was already discussed.

TrChSpHa is referring to the fact that it took two days and the HelloFresh termination for her to make that statement, which was posted on Instagram an hour ago.

Highland Guy was all over the WSS threads earlier this year, saying how brave Amar Ramasar was in the face of people being mean about him and how he (Highland Guy) admired his courage. He seems to be inclined to defend people who've done shi--y things. The Lea Michele defense is right on brand.



FROZEN closes on Broadway  May 15 2020, 02:16:57 AM

Broadway Buddy said: "Don’t see American Buffalo, Diana, or Take Me Out surviving either."

Why wouldn't Take Me Out survive? They may not be able to retain the whole cast (especially the bigger names), but it's being staged by a nonprofit, and there's enough interest (for...reasons ) that it's one show that might get people to risk coming out for, more so than a lot of shows (or just about anything Second Stage could replace it with).

Which shows will Covid-19 end?  Apr 9 2020, 02:47:48 PM

Kudos to Matt Doyle for his post, which I just saw. Well said.

I'm not sure this has been posted; Second Stage is looking to push Take Me Out to the fall (not sure if that's possible with Williams's Grey's Anatomy schedule, but I like that they're trying to keep it alive):

Jesse Green's obituary in the NY Times is very nice. I hadn't heard the Angela Lansbury story before, though it reminded me I was fortunate enough to attend the tribute she hosted to him in 2011 (and makes me love her even more).

I don't have the words, so probably shouldn't even be trying. Awful. Just awful.

Rest in peace, Mr. McNally.
