Oklahoma: A- Loved Ali Stroker's "Cain't Say No". She's just terrific and brings such joy to the show. "Oklahoma" was good, but not sure they needed to demonstrate the "immersive" feel of the show for this telecast as it detracted from the talented cast.
Ain't Too Proud: B+ Good performance that neither helped or hurt sales. This wil
Just returned from NY and saw three of the four you’ve mentioned. Hadestown is a must! I really figured Tootsie would be great too, but was just not enamored with it (great book though). Ain’t Too Proud was surprisingly better. The others I saw were Oklahoma & To Kill A Mockingbird and I found those better than Tootsie as well.
I’m sure you’ll have fun with whatever you choose.
The nominations seem largely as expected - though I’m somewhat surprised by the omissions of Allison Pill and Lee Pace. I’m mostly disappointed, however, for James McArdle. I really loved his performance in “Angels” - maybe my favorite of the production.
Just saw both parts yesterday and WOW! Part 1 (“Millennium Approaches&rdquo is a fully-realized play, but its very dramatic conclusion will make you want to see how everything concludes in Part 2 (“Perestroika&rdquo. And the (almost) eight hours FLEW by!
I had (skeptical, but) high hopes when I first heard about this show. Despite the initial feedback, I bought a ticket to an upcoming performance and drastically lowered my expectations. I love Donna Summer music, so I was willing to take the leap. After seeing this morning's performance on the Today Show, I fully realize that I should have stayed on the cliff.
Thanks for the kind words! It seemed to take forever to get everything lined up right, but the finished look really "pops" one of our living room walls. I'd say about 80% remains constant and the remainder are switched out a couple times a year with new shows I've seen or older ones I have stockpiled away. Fun!
Headed to NYC in late April and the trip will, unfortunately, be short. I've got tickets for "Angels In America" (both parts) on Saturday, but need a show for Friday when I arrive. I've already seen "The Band's Visit" (which I loved) and leaning towards a musical since Saturday will be ALL play.
Thinking "Mean Girls" or "Summer: The Donna Summer Musical" to lighten up the weekend. Huge fan of Donna Summer

Some very interesting ways to looks at this, but I was really focused on actors/actresses who had been part of the original cast of a show that won the Tony for Best Play, Musical, Play-Revival, or Musical Revival. Mann's "three" (Cats, Les Miserables, & the revival of Pippin) would seem to put him near the top, but I wondered if anyone else has three or more?
The show may or may not have had a long run (though I think that is an equally interesting statistic) or been financially succ
