    Re: 2018 Tony Awards

    Thanks for posting this, Ti. I made my comment in another thread that this is always my favorite awards show, despite the fact that I have almost never seen a show that is up for awards. In fact, 1977 and 1981 were the only 2 years that I had seen ANY of the nominees before the awards show. (and each of those times, it was at most 2 of them). It does amaze me that this show is always fascinating even if one doesn't know squat about the shows nominated.

    I would love to hear from anyone who has seen any of the nominees, especially the nominees for new play and new musical. And since one of my favorite actors, Mark Rylance, is nominated for Farinelli and the King, I'd love to hear from anyone who has seen that as well.

    Re: 2018 Tony Awards

    I haven't been lucky enough to see any of these, but I'm just about the only one in my family and extended family who has yet to see The Iceman Cometh so I've heard a lot about it. So Glenn, I'd get ready to be happy that Mark has been nominated. I'm not saying it's a runaway, but I will be shocked if Denzel or Andrew doesn't win that category, with the edge going to Denzel cause he's Denzel. Everyone I know who has seen it can't stop raving about him in it. And that the Angels in America revival is getting this praise when the original is so beloved says a lot about it, and people are saying Andrew was superb. I can't imagine one of them not walking away the winner, but there's always a chance for an upset.

    I haven't seen my sister's mother-in-law in a few months so I'm not up to date on many of these plays, she's a subscriber to one of the theaters and sees most of these and typically gives me the full rundown, so hopefully I'll get to see her before the Tony's take place. I'll come back and share if that happens.

    Glenn I saw your comment in the non EGOT award thread and hurried to start this thread. I took a mental health break from the interwebs today otherwise I would've posted the nominees earlier.

    EGOT means Emmys, Grammys, Oscars and Tony's.

    The last week of May, I'm heading to NYC and will see Angels in America, Three Tall Women and Boys in the Band. IF I feel so motivated afterwards, I'll give my impressions.

    Re: 2018 Tony Awards

    Nelsius, I will be interested in your impressions about seeing Boys in the Band in 2018. Seeing it now, does it seem like a really good look at the history of such an important time? OR, does it seem too dated? Plays like that one could go either way. I thought it was wonderful back when.

    Reminder of what a difference a year makes. Kevin Spacey hosted last year's Tony's. Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles are hosting this year. I'm not sure what to make of that pairing, but I love Sara and can enjoy Josh and I assume whatever they do musically will be great, so hoping for the best.

    Nelslus, hope you enjoy your trip to NYC.

    It's funny- I've not at all ever been a fan of The Boys in the Band- the movie, and a production I saw in Chicago. Not that I haven't been able to see that it's well-written and all that, and certainly reflects what life was like for some back in the day. Thing is, to put this simplistically, I tend not to enjoy movies or theaters involving the kinds of folks that I have always taken great paint to avoid in "real" life. Plus, over-all this show is far too Over-Caucasian for my tastes.

    HOWEVER- on discussion boards, folks have been praising this show very highly during the first few days of previews, which obviously is a great sign. And- the cast is terrific, and my understanding is that all of the actors are out gay men. So- I figured, what the heck, take a chance. Plus, apparently they've done some editing to get this show's running time to be about 2 hours with no intermission. And, since I'm seeing the 783 hours of Angels in America over two nights with I believe two intermissions both nights- that this show and Three Tall Women are shorter with no intermissions is all rather appealing to me.

    The cast really is fantastic. And yes that's correct, I'm familiar with the cast from many other projects, and they are all out gay men. Also, Joe Mantello is directing, and Ryan Murphy and Scott Rudin are producers, all of whom are out as well.

    Re: 2018 Tony Awards

    Tony Awards are tomorrow night. Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles are hosting. Bruce Springsteen getting a special honor for his one-man Broadway show and is also set to perform. Expected performances from the casts of Dear Evan Hansen, My Fair Lady, Carousel, The Band's Visit, SpongeBob SquarePants the Musical, Mean Girls, Frozen, Once on This Island, and Summer: The Donna Summers Musical.

    Also, Chita Rivera and Andrew Lloyd Webber are getting Lifetime Achievement Awards, so I'd expect some really good montages as well.

    Let's hope the person covering this for the NY Times knows who Chita Rivera is and doesn't demote her to "and friend" the way she did last year with Rita Moreno.

    You are lying! I missed that. That's beyond pitiful, she's a freaking legend. And at the Times? Seriously??? What is going on over there?

    They dragged her (the reporter was a woman) so badly they fixed it within half an hour.

    The Times has really gone down in quality at all levels.
