Interesting the article mentioned a few off broadway shows included Alice of Heart which I love. Has an off broadway show been nominated before?
If Moulin Rouge! is eligible this year, wouldn't that seem like catnip for Grammys voters? As much as I adore Hadestown and think it deserves to win every award this year, the Grammys have always proven that quality doesn't necessarily beat pop music connections...
Alice By Heart will never be nominated for a Grammy. But, the show does not have to be a show that was on Broadway, sometimes they are staged concerts.
Rosette3 said: "Has an off broadway show been nominated before?" According to Wikipedia, most of the non-Broadway nominations in in the last couple decades have been live albums of concert productions, such as Jesus Christ Superstar Live, West Side Story at the SF symphony, and Sweeney Todd at the NY Philharmonic, Anyone Can Whistle at Carnegie Hall, etc. But from what I can tell, the last time an album was nominated specifically from an OFF-BROADWAY production was in 2000 with Hedwig and the Angry Inch - unless I missed one.
Nominations are out. Would love to have seen The Prom nominated.
The fact that deadline is mentioning the controversy....does say something.https://deadline.com/2019/11/grammy-musical-theater-album-hadestown-oklahoma-aint-too-proud-1202790658/
For those you have seen it, is the music really wonderful in Harry Potter?

Isn't the award supposed to be for a musical? Why are plays getting nominated?

I feel like it's now a battle between Moulin Rouge and Hadestown, the two most popular. As much as we all love MR, I still think Hadestown will win because of its original story - literally - the entire story is told throughout the entire album!
LuPita2 said: "For those you have seen it, is the music really wonderful in Harry Potter?"YES. I actually saw Harry Potter (both parts) last night. The music is absolutely BRILLIANT. I wish it would win, but I know it will most likely go to Hadestown or...maybe Oklahoma! is the other option.
You can find the Harry Potter music on YouTube or stream it on Spotify. I'd highly recommend it. What Imogen Heap does is incredible.
