I thought sara and josh were great hosts and did a pretty good job popping in every now and then. I don’t understand why Colbert doesn’t do it. He’s under contract with CBS and his show is taped in NY. Having corden do it just seems too much effort on CBS’ part. I’m curious if John Mulaney couldn’t do it

Have you ever taken a look at viewfrommyseat.com? That might give you an idea on the view from most of the seats in the theater. I'm not sure if it shows for Burn This yet since they just started, but it's worth checking out!"
I have actually, yes! Sometimes it depends on th

Glad to hear the esrly reviews for this are strong. Any recommendation on seating for people who have seen the show?
My first thought was Kinky Boots Vs Matilda. That was the first Tony's I watched, and I remember the HEATED debates on this board when Kinky won. Ive seen Kinky 4 times and haven't seen Matilda so I can't specifically comment on that show, but in terms of lead actor, I ebelvie the main argument was that Carvel should've been in supporting and that his role really was not a leading role. I can see why voters would vote for an equally excellent performance that is more of a dema

Even tho it is technically a sequel, Im hoping they appreciate the originality of the piece. Granted I have not seen Gary but from what I have read and know, seems like they are expandin

April 8 - May 12! Im thinking if they sell well they may extend into summer a little. Could be wishful thinking however. I normally don't see shows based on casting, and Ive had this show on my list for awhile, but these 2 totally sell it
Im curious, what would be considered one of the bigger tony upsets? Now Im not asking in terms of who YOU thought should've won, but often as there is a usual consensus for who will win. For example, The Bands Visit and Hamilton are 2 recent clear favorites to take Best Musical. Can you imagine the upset if Mean Girls or Waitress took the win? Just wondering if there has been any fun cases of true shock of a winner.
Its still very early in their previews, but Im expecting Gary and the coming in very well reviewed INK to take up the last 2 remaining Best Play slots. IF there is a 5th, Im thinking its going to be Hillary and Clinton. While I think Cranston cold bring Network alone into that 5th slot, I suspect Hillary and Clinton will snatch it up. Should be fun to see how it all plays out however.
PLAYBILL Covers of the 2018-2019 Season Mar 17

Are these rehearsal playbills seriously becoming a thing? Or just a Scott Rudin thing? Either way, don't care for them. This may be my favorite out of them, but I'd really prefer a production photo or artwork.

Adam Drive may be my favorite actor currently working so I feel this is a can't miss for me. Glad to hear the solid esrly reports!
Another one here for The Ferryman if you haven't seen it. I know Mockinbird does offer standing room as well, so that may be an option for you as well. Both productions, are simply incredible imo. Ferryman is 3 1/2 hours and 3 acts, but does fly by. Even people I know on here and in real life who didnt love the show agreed the runtime was not really an issue, its paced very well. Enjoy whichever show you choose!
I have not seen it off broadway, but my cousin has! I recommend the show to her since I saw the tour and laughed my ass off. She does see a fair amount of theatre, but is not like us on here haha. Her report was that the theatre was small and played perfectly for the show, and she absolutely loved it. I wish I had more than that to report, but at least its a good one! I hope to catch this again someday as well.
Joan has a shot since I think Waverly may get the most love out of the play revivals, so the love for that show may jolt her into that category. Such a competitive season for plays though. As someone who hasn't followed them too closely, are the plays generally this strong and competitive? I feel the past few musical seasons have been so weak, and are often more imbalanced in terms of consistent quality of productions, but I have seen a lot of plays this year and while some were better th
