What will happen to Tony Awards? Mar 13
2020, 10:11:34 AM
The Tony Awards is an international television commercial that provides big boosts to the advances and awareness and interest in attending shows.
To not have the Tony's would be a death sentence to shows that are in an unprecedented state of jeopardy. The League and Awards committee will meet and hopefully come up with a solution that is fair and gives Broadway the boost that it needs.
All that being said, we don't know if this shutdown will extend past the 4 weeks. We don't kn

Just email producers, managers, and not-for-profits that you want to work for and say that you're in town for a week, want to start your career, and are seeking an informational interview for guidance. You may get lucky and get some responses. (Most of these individuals and organizations have websites with contact info or forms.)
JRB’s tasteless tweet Jan 10

That's great advice! Asking someone to lighten up about pedophilia? Bravo!
It was indeed tasteless. Why would you have the need to share that for all the world to see? That's one that you save for your close circle of friends who may have the same twisted sense of humor you do. It's all about context. Publishing that to the world at large...what is his rationale? Tasteless.

Your point would normally be valid, however, in the musical, Christian didn't love Satine. Satine did not love Christian. The Duke did not love Satine. No one loved anyone. At least that is the impression I got when I saw the show. It was all pretty to look at, though.

This is one of those shows where I wouldn't mind a revival 5 years from now. This musical was immensely fun.

How about you just sit back, be an active listener, and watch the show. Why do you need to distract yourself and others during the show?
Tony Night Suprises May 18

What do you predict may be some Tony winner surprises this year? (Meaning a plausible surprise win against a 'frontrunner' in a certain category.)
I have two predictions...
1) While I think the frontrunner for REVIVAL OF A PLAY is The Waverly Gallery, I actually think it may end up going to ALL MY SONS. I think the punishment towards Scott Rudin is going to continue, and Roundabout will come out the victor here.
2) I assess the frontrunner of BEST LEADING ACTOR IN A MU

Artistic Directors love getting feedback. You should write them. Except I would spend more energy being specific with why you didn't like the productions, rather that generalized statements.
