wOOt.

But as far as Tonys go, I think SUNDAY is still going to have a tough time going against PACIFIC, against the Rogers/Hammerstein legacy (some voters might feel that Sondheim, for now, has been rewarded enough) and against Kelli O'Hara's all-powerful new haircut.

P.S. I think a nod or more for a supporting cast member in SUNDAY is pretty much guaranteed now.

We'll have to see how SOUTH PACIFIC turns out. It could be quite a competition.

I would like to see them extend juuust a little farther, so they can perform on the awards. I'd really love to see that.
I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

Well, hopefully they will extend more. Was CABARET at Studio 54 originally a limited run?

Yeah I agree - they need a little extension. Then I can get to see it!

Does anyone know if Jenna is for sure extending it? Didn't she have a previous engagment in the UK and couldn't extend with SUNDAY past April?

I posted about the June 1 extension this morning, and someone on the same thread (Sunday/opinions thread) said that he asked a cast member about it and he said that the show could possibly get extended until August.

I hope hope hope it does.
