^My age is none of your business, but I am within the age range that you have predicted (on the later end).  

Yes I made a mistake and later fixed it.  I don't understand why people keep popping up in this thread to correct me and not respond to the topic.  Please don't try to derail this thread for no reason.  Also, my name is not Benjamin.

^Ok then.

NY Times Tony Voter Poll  Jun 9 2017, 03:17:10 AM

No it's fine that other people don't like DEH, but I happen to find CFA to be an appallingly terrible show and it would be absolutely hilarious if it won Best Musical.

Is Cursed Child actually any good?  Jun 9 2017, 02:13:57 AM

The writing is incredibly disappointing.  I still think that a prequel would have made better subject matter and that a better playwright could have made it a truly great play to match a truly great production.

2017 Tony Best Musical- tie??  Jun 9 2017, 02:06:30 AM

^ The Tony voter poll showed that it was very close.

Scarywarhol said: "They did the Color Purple revival, right? One of the very worst representations of what a production felt and sounded like in the theater. 

And yet somehow won a Grammy.  Yep, they took a brilliant production and sucked all of the life out of it.  I wish Ghostlight would just record everything.  Their records are so warm and theatrical and beautiful.

^Yeah. I unfortunately agree.  Wright is a great writer, but his musical books lack some focus and any sort of actual narrative.

ANASTASIA OBC Digital Release?  Jun 9 2017, 01:20:16 AM

^Yeah they don't make much, but it's still really irritating that I can't add songs from any of their albums to my playlists.  I also happen to find their albums to be kind of flat, lifeless, and sterile, but that's a whole different conversation.

Next for Frankel and Korie  Jun 9 2017, 01:13:48 AM

Yes it was.  There's no reason to enter a thread and start "correcting" people without actually contributing anything to the conversation.  It's just kind of rude.

^Broadway Records doesn't release their albums on Spotify.  One of the many reasons why they're my least favorite broadway label.

2017 TONY Awards Performances  Jun 9 2017, 01:04:42 AM

I'm also a bit surprised to see that Anastasia and A Bronx Tale won't be performing.  I figured that they would want the exposure.

^ You don't need to be fvcking rude.  I meant to say "or."  I just corrected it.

Personally,  I think Lena Hall would be beautiful as Therese.  It would be different from a lot of the other roles that she's played, but I think she'd be great.

2017 Tony Best Musical- tie??  Jun 9 2017, 12:05:51 AM

The race is extremely close between Dear Evan Hansen and Come From Away.

It's just something about your tone.


NY Times Tony Voter Poll  Jun 8 2017, 11:06:01 PM

Broadwayrox, I agree with what you're saying, but Froote has been particularly relentless with their DEH hate.  There's nothing wrong with not enjoying a show, but you shouldn't go out of your way to try to put people down for enjoying it.

NY Times Tony Voter Poll  Jun 8 2017, 11:02:42 PM

I'm tired of your persistent hatred of DEH.  If you don't like it, fine, but let those who do like it, like it without feeling like we're being ridiculous for doing so.

NY Times Tony Voter Poll  Jun 8 2017, 10:54:14 PM

You are so negative and defensive.  Why are you always hissing and spitting all over DEH like some kind of rabid animal.  Take a break, girl.  Calm down.

Next for Frankel and Korie  Jun 8 2017, 10:51:54 PM

I think that Grey Gardens, Far From Heaven, and War Paint are all spectacular.  I love to see them do Carol as a musical (with Kelli O'Hara or Laura Benanti please) and maybe It's A Wonderful Life.  I look forward to whatever they produce in the future.

NY Times Tony Voter Poll  Jun 8 2017, 10:46:12 PM

DEH winning would not be a farce of epic proportions.  It was the best reviewed musical of the year and is by far the most financially successful.  You're allowed to not like the show, but let's not forget the facts.  DEH is the hot new musical and it winning should not be particularly shocking or ridiculous.

CFA winning would be a farce of epic proportions, IMO, because it really is not as well written or as well executed as it's fellow nominees.  Peopl

^I agree, but this way almost all of the cast gets showcased in some kind of way.
