  1. Poor Elena Roger. No nomination for the Evita in Evita.

  2. "Bonnie and Clyde" was a musical? Oh I would have loved to have seen it. (opened Dec 1, closed Dec 31) I'm sure the Estelle Parsons' Blanche actress has a smashing show-stopping number waving a spatula and wearing an apron.

  3. Baaaad year for new musicals generally. The 2nd most-nominated "new" musical is a patchwork of the Gershwin catalogue, that nobody I have seen liked. At all. A colleague called it horrible and "unfixable".

    Once is just as lame -- an unneccessary stage musical of a perfectly pleasant movie musical. "Once" is the poor man's "Once".

    Plays, however, had a GOOD year. I have not seen Peter and The Starcatcher, but everyone who has seen it likes it, and I have not heard a bad thing about it.

    I LOVE Broadway, and its talents continue to amaze me. Best wishes to all the actors and actresses who continue to make magic.

  4. Rick Martin was snubbed after rave reviews... :(

  5. Stepsi,

    Doesn't sound like you've seen any of them...

    Nice Work If You Can Get It and Follies and Newsies and Lysistrata Jones are/were great.

  6. Gore Vidal's "The Best Man" is one of the best shows/films about politics ever written. Congratulations on the nominations.

  7. The Tony Awards noms generally sucked this year with some big names snubbed. As for Elena Rogers, I believe her reviews were none too good, and the word "screechy" was noted in many of them. As for the Steve Martin remake, Leap of Faith, it seems that Broadway is trying to reel in the evangelical crowd. They do tend to book in groups.

  8. I didn't care for Once. Agree that it takes everything that was great about the movie -- its naturalism and verite -- and necessarily throws it overboard in favor of some hoary stage tropes. Great music, though.

    Follies was the best musical I saw this year.

  9. @happyday: "As for the Steve Martin remake, Leap of Faith, it seems that Broadway is trying to reel in the evangelical crowd. They do tend to book in groups."
    Did you ever actually *see* that movie? It sure wasn't a sympathetic portrayal of evangelical so-called "faith healers." The movie was partly based on James Randi's debunking of self-proclaimed faith healer Peter Popoff (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7BQKu0YP8Y) and was hardly any kind of apologia for charlatans like Popoff.

  10. Bernadette Peters was robbed. Her co-stars in Follies were all excellent, but she was the stand-out. The rest of them are coming here to be in the L.A. production, but Peters is not - and her absence is why I'm giving a pass to the opportunity to see this fantastic revival again. Such a shame.

  11. Jan Maxwell was amazing in "Follies"
