"tony award" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour

"To see her sing let it burn in person. You get chills, you know? When I saw it, she got, she got a standing ovation that just lasted and lasted unless. And you could absolutely understand why. Because she fully devotes herself and throws herself into that number 8 times a week, right? She doesn't hold back the same way that you saw on that stage. When I saw it, I wrote my notebook, I was like, oh, she's got the Viola Davis snot coming down her nose. But she also just has this big, rich, beautiful singing voice. And that's a new thing that I did not realize about her until I saw her in Paradise square this season. I don't know if you remember, but last season was also nominated for a Tony for her role as kenisha enslaved play. Again, you know, this is someone who really seems to have a bright future ahead of them. I'm not going to go so far as to say she's going to be the next audra McDonald because she doesn't have to. She can just be working in a Congo and that is more than enough. Sure. But I'm very excited about her future. As for actress in a featured role in a play Felicia Rashad, one four skeleton crew talked to me about it. Yeah, so this is a really interesting play written by Dominique Marissa. Helen Shaw, who's the theater critic for New York magazine, has called Dominique the Bard of Detroit. I often refer to her as feminist August Wilson. So in this play, Felicia is playing this really interesting character and Faye. She's a union rep at a sheet metal stamping plant that is very likely going to close, but of course the supervisor is being awfully cagey about that. They also has a lot of her own issues that are going on. Things have not necessarily worked out so well for her financially and so she's unhoused and much to the ignorance of her boss who is played by Brandon J durden. She's also sleeping at the plant or in her car. So that's we've hit some of the major categories. Now let's move on to kind of broader thoughts on the telecast itself. Let's talk about Ariana debose, as host, what'd you think? Wow, what a ball of energy. Absolutely. Oh my goodness. You know, if you can't follow her through a program, I don't know, man. Check your post, maybe. But man, there's just nothing she can't do. There's been too many shows over here to listen to talks about. So we matched up with you. Let's see if you can spot them. That opening medley struck exactly the right note for me, which is pure. Unapologetic showbiz with just like a twist of lemon squeeze of cringe, right? Because that bit about, we figured we'd remix it and then they mime the DJ scratching. That is so cheesy, but it is so knowing. They know exactly what they're doing. That's all they wanted, that is the perfect fuel mixture. We should also note that it's Pride Month and it is the Tony, so that opening number featured a kiss between two backup dancers who are boyfriends in real life, Charlie Williams and Ryan Steele. And in her opening, de Bose mentioned that at least when it comes to the denominations, the tonys are making some inroads towards greater inclusivity and diversity. I feel like the phrase great white way is becoming more of a nickname, as opposed to a how to guide. Her hosting was completely on fire, even when a bit didn't land. I don't think all the crowd work worked because crowd work is tricky. I thought she was perfect. This is how you host a program like this, especially a program that goes three hours and change. Let's talk about some of the other musical performances, the music man, Sutton Foster, Hugh Jackman, what'd you think? It is that sort of classic performance that I think there is a subset of tourists who that is absolutely what they expect is what they want to see when they come to New York, like they have this vision of what a Broadway show looks like and it is exactly that. 76 Trump bulls led the big parade with a 110 corn that's closer. They will follow by. You know, I felt a little nostalgic watching this. This was my father's my late father's favorite musical. He would play 76 trombones on the piano every Saturday morning. And I thought to myself, a, something foster can do no wrong. I'll watch her tap dance whenever. Be he would have loved this. This is for him. Yeah, exactly. And then the Steven Sondheim tribute with Bernadette Peters singing a children will listen from into the Woods to me this struck exactly the right note. Careful the things you say children will share careful the things you do children will see. And learn children will listen is one of my favorites on time songs. It's got this beautiful tenderness to it again. That I really, I hope translates through the television, I'm not sure if it always does with theater, you know, I think that's why people think that theater people are freaks. I will say that, man, the choice of clips where he is talking about how any form of communication is a form of teaching and how in particular theater can be a form of teaching a ties in so well with the theme of that song, the presentation of that song, the Bernadette Peters of it all, man. It was a high point of the evening. Big picture, state of the theater. What did this particular broadcast tell you about it? I'm very proud of this community, and it's resilience. New York was struck so hard by the coronavirus pandemic early in 2020. And so to see that engine get restarted, brings about a great deal of much needed hopefulness. I agree, I agree. Well, we want to know what you think about this year's tonys, find us at Facebook dot com slash PC, HH on Twitter at PCH so that brings us to the end of our show, soraya, not McDonald, thank you so much for being here.

"But now it acts wide ready next up is MJ. This is a Michael Jackson jukebox musical that traces his career, but as writers like yourself have pointed out there is a lot that it leaves out. Miles frost won actor in a leading role in a musical, a Natasha cats, lighting design of a musical, Gareth Owen, sound design of a musical, Christopher wielding for choreography, any thoughts here? So I think miles frost became the youngest man in history to win in the category leading actor in a musical. You know, and I think it's clear to see why he's just shy of his 23rd birthday. And he really does sort of sparkle with this kind of child like innocence. He brings just so much sweetness and depth and humanity to a man who often could be very difficult to understand. And so, you know, I think that is a win that is richly deserved. And I'm also just really excited to see what he does in the future. He basically is sort of rose to prominence on the Internet as a Michael Jackson impersonator. And I think what's worth saying about this performance is that it doesn't feel like an impersonation at all. It is a very grounded and sort of 360° performance. It feels very lived in and very human. This guy is the limit for him. I feel like he can just do so much. Yeah, and speaking for those who saw the telecast at home, just from that performance alone, it makes sense to me that it won for choreography because frost starts off that number by mentioning Jackson's influences, Fred Astaire, the Nicholas brothers and Bob Fosse. The number really leans into the Fosse of it all. It is very crisp and very angular. It is sexy, the dancers are crazy hot, and you could totally see how intricate the choreography was and how that might stand out. Next up is take me out, which one for best revival of a play and Jesse Tyler Ferguson that won for actor in a featured role in a play. This play is about a closeted Major League Baseball player. You saw this play, what did you think? I was kind of mixed on this play. There are some parts, I think, that work well and remain salient in 2022. And there are others, you know, because this play is about 20 years old, Jesse is delivering this really sort of natural lived in performance of this awkward accountant, you know, who doesn't really think very much of himself, but who gets sort of wonderfully flustered by his very handsome client who's played by Jesse Williams. You know, the thing I wish I had been able to ask and that really kind of stuck with me is the way that this play kind of alienates both its Asian and Latin characters because it's kind of relying consistently on, well, they don't speak English as sort of this running joke through the play to explain why we never really hear from them. You know, it tries to, I think, sort of clumsily kind of make up for that. Maybe in the third act a little bit. When we're talking about revivals, really, we're talking about, okay, what is sort of the story behind the decision to resurrect this thing? And there was some really interesting revivals this season. You know, I think Thornton wilder's skin of our teeth, which liliana Blaine Cruz, who has nominated for directing, is really interesting, right? It feels like we are living in sort of grand existential crises happening. And that is what the skin of our teeth really embodies, right? You have this family called the antrobus family that is sort of muddling through what feels like the end of the world, right? And yet it's so much fun and so, you know, when we're thinking about revivals, I don't know the take me out was necessarily my favorite or necessarily the best one of the season. But there are lots of things to enjoy and respect about it. Yes, and we should mention, I mean, I love to play this kind of route. I haven't gotten a chance to see this production, but this production won best costume design by Montana Levi Blanco. Now next up is a play I want to talk to you about because this is a couple of very interesting wins. This is Dana H, a deirdre O'Connell, one for actress in a leading role in a play and Mikhail fiscal, one for sound design of a play. These are a couple of interesting wins with the story behind them. The playwright's mother was kidnapped when he was a young man for many months, and he recorded a series of interviews with her where she tells that story. The actress deirdre O'Connell personifies his mother by basically mouthing along to these tapes, and she spends most of the play alone on stage. It is a very unusual piece. And it was by no means a foregone conclusion that she would win, and she referenced as much in her acceptance speech. Please let me standing here be a little signed to you from the universe to make the weird art. That's why you saw Dana H would you make of it? It's one of my favorite works. Because it's so weird. It really depends on the audience to kind of trust dear and go with her on this journey because it's not hiding anything, right? We see the sort of earpiece that she's got in her ear. And the fact that she is really focused. So heavily on syncing with every word and inflection and cough and everything Lucas Nate's mother is doing. In these interviews and so rather than typing out a script and having her put her own spin on these things, you know, her own interpretation, you know, it's got sort of elements of documentary in that way. And I was really heartened, you know, deirdre O'Connell is a veteran of sort of weird off Broadway theater. And so it was just wonderful to see her honored. And also, you know, this makes me optimistic for the type of work, hopefully, that we'll see more of, you know, because that's always the sort of never ending conflict with the tonys and commercial theater in general versus the downtown theater folks in New York that we don't. We don't see enough weirdness on Broadway. And so I really hope this leads to more of that. Me too. Now next up color can go one for best actress in a leading role in a musical for Paradise square. This is a musical set during the Civil War in the Manhattan neighborhood of 5 points where a bar and a brothel frequented by both black and Irish customers is threatened with violence. The bar is.

"The one thing I would say about the Tony performance is you didn't really get a sense why this one seemed designed from that number because it is only as you mentioned the one box and the set gets much more elaborate and much more complicated in the actual show, but of course transporting that to the Radio City stage probably was a daunting task. There was a running gag throughout the evening that killed in the room, but I think might have left some folks a little bit confused, which is several winners who won from company mentioned that producer Chris Harper pays their salary. Chris Harper pays my wages and of course Marianne Elliott. Now this was a reference to a viral moment a couple weeks back when LuPone lambasted an audience member for not wearing their mask properly. The audience members said, we pay your salary and lupin responded to BS. Chris Harper pace my salary. So that came back several times. Yeah, I'm not sure how many folks got that, but it was definitely quite riotous in the room. Next up is 6, the musical. Toby Marlow and Lucy moss won for best original score, Toby Marlow becoming the first openly non binary nominee to win a Tony in this category. Gabriella Slade won for best costume design of a musical. Now I love this show. I'm happy I got some love. I was a bit worried it was gonna beat out a strange loop, which is just a fundamentally different show, a much chewier and thoughtful show than this little aperitif of a show is what do you think? Yeah, it really provides this sort of frothy delight. You know, I've seen it described as a feminist show. I don't know that I would go that far. I think it's more assertive in the more nebulous camp of women's empowerment. Particularly because for the majority of the length of the show, the 6 wives of Henry V8 are sort of squabbling amongst themselves about which one he loved more, which one was more significant. Until they kind of have this epiphany, but maybe we shouldn't be doing that. At the end. But it's a really fun show. What it does well is that spectacle that I think tourists come to expect from Broadway, the bright lights and lots of sequins and everything is kind of flashy because basically what it's doing is it's telling the story of each of these women in these different musical styles that are all basically different forms of pop music. And the costumes again are just really, really fun. Someone asked Gabriela when she was talking to media after she'd accepted her award if she would think about starting a clothing line. And she said, basically, she doesn't have to because cosplayers have already sort of flooded that zone. And have really just kind of taken off with their own creativity. Absolutely, absolutely. And yeah, the musical performance, the Tony performance of the number 6, was exactly what I saw on Broadway.

"Queer body it won for best musical, Michael R Jackson the playwright, won best book for a musical, which was kind of expected, I think, as it won the Pulitzer for drama. What did you think of the performance end of these wins? I think their performance was really charming. And shows off what makes this show so fun while also still managing not to get CBS fined by the FCC. You know, a bit of a feat because in addition to being this big black queer American Broadway show, it is quite profane at moments, but completely hilarious. And such a triumph for Michael R Jackson, who said in his acceptance speech, you know, he started working on this when he was 23, and he's now 41. You know, when he came backstage and we asked him, you know, what are the thoughts in your head? Who are basically the supporting characters in that musical, someone asked, well, what are the thoughts saying to you now? I think he said, you know, they're telling me to make more weird art. We'll come back to that, yeah. I mean, this show got the most nominations this year, 11, but it didn't start out the night winning as many awards as many people were predicting. It ended up taking home the big one. I haven't seen this personally, but I have been listening to this cast album on a loop for months now. Michael R Jackson, as you mentioned, did get a chance to make a very charming speech when he won for best book. Y'all know I'm all about quality and high art. We talk a lot about representation. I'm all about representation, but let's make sure that we are staying on our grind and our art that we are doing the very best work that we can do. Jane wine and once said, there's nothing that can replace quality. Never settled. We should also note that Jennifer Hudson was a producer of this show, along with RuPaul Charles, which means that J hud is now among the select group of egot winner of Emmy Grammy Oscar and Tony before Sunday, she was just an ego. Now she's an egot. Next up, the Lehman trilogy won best play. This is a play about the rise and fall of the Lehman Brothers investment firm, and in another sense it's about New York City itself. Simon Russell Beale won actor in a leading role in a play. All three of the actors in this play, including Adrian Lester and Adam godley, were up for actor in a leading role in a play. Sam Mendes, won for best direction of a play, S Devlin won for scenic design of a play, John Clark won for lighting design of a play. And something we both have seen actually is company. This one best revival of a musical. This is Stephen Sondheim's gimlet eyed take on marriage and relationships. This is a gender flipped version, which originated on the West End. Patti LuPone won actress in a featured role in a musical, she plays Joanne, who sings ladies who lunch, Matt Doyle won actor in a featured role in a musical he plays Jamie who sings getting married today. Marianne Elliott won best direction of a musical and bunny Christie on scenic design of a musical. Any thoughts? You know, I think this was almost inevitable, right? Just as a tribute to one of the greatest composers in American history. This production in particular, I think has its bright spots, Katrina lenk, who recently won the Tony for the band's visit. Is luminous in this role as Bobby. I do think because of the fact that it's gender flipped, there's still some moments that are kind of awkward and don't quite work. But overall, it's still an extremely pleasurable experience. The other thing I thought that was sort of interesting about scenic design is as much as I think that said, it's beautiful. It starts out basically as one box, right? And slowly we shift to these different characters lives. And in their time in New York apartments. On a practical level that has been a set that maybe doesn't quite work all the way through the show sometimes. Like mechanically, it doesn't work. Yeah. But overall, you know, it's understandable to see a bunch of tonys being showered on a Sondheim production. So soon after his death..

They've still got it. I loved it. I have to confess a major musical blind spot and that is the show ragtime never seen it never heard it but judging by how my twitter feed exploded when brian stokes mitchell and audra mcdonald sang wheels of a dream from ragtime. Can you filming on this. I also have never had the chance to see ragtime. But i do know the music and i do know that this is one of those shows that definitely i mean. Obviously there's also the revival of carousel that put audra mcdonald on the map but this is her show and it was so great to see the two of them together they they have such a powerhouse energy between them and they're both legends. And you know. They should've just ended with that. Because it so powerfully that final.

"This was another player. you saw. Yes yes it was. Actually one of the last shows that i saw before the shutdown happened. And i'm just so happy to see. David alan grier get this award. He's been nominated several times before that and this was his first time winning. And i think a lot of people don't realize this dude is like a trained actor. He can do everything from shakespeare to a soldier's play to of course a lot of people know him from in living color so like his range is fantastic and it just made me really happy to see him get this award and i thought the production was actually really really strong. And i'm glad. I got a little bit of love last night In terms of a little bit of love actually a lot of love moolah rouge basically soaked up just about everything. It was nominated for including best musical leading actor in a musical into debate who listeners of the show will remember as the carnival barker in schmidt. Geduhn he was. The only actor nominated in this category. Because of we are timing stuff and man. I really wanted him to acknowledge it a little bit more than he did but he mostly played it. Straight right yeah. This was the first time this that ever happens. And apparently he needed at least sixty percent of the votes to win and look at that he did. But i would have loved to see like a bit made out of his speech and instead i think he kind of like briefly alluded to or mentioned it and then just kind of went on. And it's like oh man. This could have been really funny moment. Something this weird happens. A bit is required. You gotta do a bit anyway. A featured actor in a musical went to mulan ridges danny burstein who gave an emotional speech mentioning the loss of his wife over the past year. You all showed up for us. You were there for us whether you just sent a note or sent your love. Sent your prayers sent bagels. It meant the world to us. And it's something. I'll never forget. And i love being an actor on broadway. Thank you so the few musical awards moulin rouge didn't soak up a went to jagged little pill featured actress in a musical went to lauren patent. Now there's a lot of controversy surrounding this particular. Musical producers have apologized for mishandling. The character of joe is played by patent. Joe is a gender non-conforming character who is quote on an open ended journey with regard to their cleaners and gender identity a patent of courses assist gender woman. And there's also been some other stuff around this particular musical actor nora. Shell voiced concerns about backstage treatment. They say there were coerced into putting off surgery producers. Say they're deeply troubled by these claims and pledged to take the matter quote very seriously a lot going on there but best book of a musical. Went to diablo cody. She's on her way to got. Yeah she has what this and then she has the oscar for the screenplay for juno correct. I like go. The i think she's made some really really fascinating stuff between obviously juno and then movies like a young adults entirely so good for her good for her leading actress in a musical winter. Adrienne warren for tina. The tina turner musical. It's very on the nose name for musical but there you are. You saw this too right. I did and look adrienne warren. I was so happy to see this happen. I feel like this was one of the wins. That was pretty predictable. She just gave a powerhouse performance. I mean the thing about tina. You know we've already seen what's love got to do with it angela. Mass and of course killed that role in the nineteen ninety-three movie adrienne. Warren took a show. That was kind of wrote. And you know it's not about okay. I don't know my oh stage show. And it's kind of Undone by some very traits moments but she really elevates the role she really inhabits tina turner while also making it her own. She has the rasp patina. But she's just so charismatic that it feels like more than just you know jamie foxx.

"Na member fdic okay. So it's just the two of us today and look. This is a four hour ceremony. I assure we cannot talk about everything. We cannot even hit all the winners all the performances were just gonna hit some highlights because there were a hell of a lot of highlights and a hell of a lot of performances but first. Let's get to this kind of bizarre presentation which was according to my twitter feed kind of troublesome for a lot of people. Most of the awards were handed out in the first two hours which aired on paramount plus that ceremony was hosted by the great and good audra mcdonald that left a lot more room for musical performances of which there are plenty in the last hours and they aired on cbs. That special was called. Broadway's back exclamation point because it's theater and That special hosted by leslie odem junior. What did you think of. This bifurcated approached at work for you. Not at all so confusing and i was not alone because i went on twitter to ask you both. They can help me find the second half of the show. This is just to me. Another example of the way in which theater just gets short shrift all the time because i they have the first part of the night the tony awards themselves were most of the awards handed out that's on paramount. Plus only and then you have to switch over to cbs. Or if you're on paramount plus you have to have paramount bus premium to watch the second half. But then i didn't also realize that because i'm on the west coast. They weren't showing the extra special the two ours hosted by leslie junior. That wasn't airing until later on. I guess because like paramount plus wasn't showing it until later in the evening and i was like. Don't wanna be up this. So it was very confusing and i think that having this bifurcated streaming thing is not helpful especially when you consider and i don't want to make this sound agents at all but i think the tonys especially has a much older demographic and so i wonder if it was confusing for me. I can only imagine how confusing it could have been a lot of other people who would have tuned in and so. I wonder what the audience numbers were like for that. That'll be interesting to see because again. The second half is less two hours. Had the big awards and best musical best play best revival all the other awards including a lot of actor in technical words were in those first two hours and i understand why they did it but man it made for a very odd night now however it has to be said that as a ceremony as an award ceremony. The tonys are always the best. Because you've got professional show people who know how to time their speeches. There ended up thirty seconds. They build each each of the speeches has arc in them and they get emotional and they call it back and then you know their performances are just. That's why you tune in right. Yeah i mean. I think what was great about this. Was that there was very very little banter going on with the present and these are people who could do banter because that is what they do. They are theater people. Many of them know how to improv. If they wanted to they could do it. But i appreciate the fact that especially audra mcdonald for the first half of the show was just like we got this. Many words need to hand out and we have to in two hours and the show actually finished ten minutes early. Which is i think great. So i appreciate it. How short and sweet. That part was especially okay. Let's get into it The award for best play in this was kind of a surprise to many people. Went to matthew lopez's the inheritance. It's a two part play. That adapts enforcers howards. End into a story about generations of gay men in newark city. Mattielo -pez is the first latin next render to win in this carry something. He mentioned in his speech. We are vibrant community reflecting a vast array of cultures experiences and yes skin tones. We have so many stories to tell they are inside of us. He can come out. Let us tell you are stories. Thank you for this. Thank you this play. Also one leading actor a play for andrew. Burn up featured actress in a play. I didn't understand what featured meant. I didn't know it means supporting. But of course the people are not going to say supporting they're gonna say featured featured actor in a play lowest smith at age ninety. She's the oldest winner in the acting. Category it also won four direction of a play. A lot of people were thinking that this was going to go to jeremy. oh harris's slave play which got twelve nominations which is a record but at one zip you saw slave pay right. I saw slave play and to say the least. It was a very polarizing show polarizing. I think among many different groups particularly black critics. I am one of those critics who really admired. Its ambition. And i liked it a lot more than others did. And just in case people are not aware it is about three couples who are interracial who are trying to work through what it means to be an inch racial couple and it involves lots of allusions to end includes sexual situations in which they are acting out slavery Which is a big reason. Why people had a lot of feelings about it. Jeremy harris co wrote Zola the movie from earlier. This year of that was based off of twitter thread. So yeah. I was quite surprised and kind of disappointed. I think the fact that whether you like it or not. This has made nominations but then didn't win. Any is a curious thing until you realize that. I didn't realize this that there are actually two different things going on when it comes to nominations and the actual awards. There's a smaller committee tasked with seeing all the shows and they are the ones who vote for it and you know. I think it's like a few dozen people and they each have like three year terms that overlap and then there's eight hundred plus people in the voting body there might be a little bit of overlap there. But that's like a huge number disparity. Which i think is why we see something like this happen. Where something like. The inheritance wins over slave play. Yeah so there's a lot of reasons why it didn't win anything i think. In you know there's no way to know. But those are a couple possibilities for vice chacao ensuring like flays polarizing among black critics. I have to tell you that The inheritances is equally polarizing among gay. Critics it is a play that launched a thousand hot takes. The best revival play went to a soldier's play. We got a greatly. I order the evening was David alan grier featured actor in a play. He gave a great speech with a lot of great energy guys and to the other nominees. Tub bananas i want and it also won for best revival of a play as you mentioned and the director kenny. Leon gave a tremendous speech no disc to shakespeare. no this to epson to check off to shaw. They're all at the table but the table got to be bigger issue..

Woke Crowd Cries Racism After 'Slave Play' Tony Awards Snub

"For a theater geek like me like me. Last night was the like the super bowl because it was the tony awards. I've got a friend in moulin rouge actually a few friends in moulin rouge and moulin rouge the musical. The huge winner. I was really really excited for danny burstein. Zeya a new york actor. He had just a horrific year. he's one of the stars of moulin rouge on broadway. And he's been a broadway actor for and he and his wife. Rebecca luker a real beloved couple rebecca. His wife got ls and both of them got cove head and she died last december. This past december. So he's back on stage with moulin rouge. He won his first. Tony award very gracious speech. And there's a huge controversy about the play side not the musical side you got you got musicals and you got you got plays right and the play that was expected to clean up at. The tonys was a play called slave plane. I know people who saw it and said it was a incoherent mess. It's just. I don't even know what it's about something about. It's all woke stuff about race. It's race and sexuality and you know a lot of people. I know roy just didn't like it at all but you know the woke crowd of new york being the wo- crowd it was nominated for. I think i think twelve tony awards. It was completely shut out. It didn't win a single tony so now of course come the accusations that the tony select selection committee is racist. Because everything's got to be racist. Everything is a lack of diversity. Everything about And of course. New york's broadway community is about the most diverse community in the world. But it's not enough for the woke crowd

"Those a touch of time. Travelling at last night's tony awards. It honored work dating back to twenty one thousand nine hundred before. The theaters fell silent so it was a busy night from rome during this studio by my wolf thirty critical theater critic for the international new times. Good morning manningham. Right tell us big winners and losers please headlines well the the big winner was on rouge the musical which i mean it did open on broadway over two years ago. But of course Broadway shut down on march twelfth. Twenty twenty and the tony. Awards honored that preceding season and truncated season. So rich won ten awards which boats well fritz london transfer. It opens in london in december. The big loser was a very provocative. Play which i saw new york and liked very much by a black american rhetoric. Called jeremy harris colts slave play. And that was nominated for twelve. Tony's and didn't win any In fact the best play word ended up going to Matthew lopez's the inheritance which is a two-parter that had been seen in london although he himself has latinas writer based in america so it was an evening full of surprises and it did spread the wealth around to other shows as well. We'll get to them in a minute. But let's focus on slave play for a minute because this to have twelve nominations and not get anything. What does that say about how people react to this. Yes i suspect that will be. There's already been some Doubt expressed on twitter doubt. Tilting into outrage Tony so white. You know there's been a lot of discussion about the need to broaden. Broadway's base in broadway's re-met and to give a play that puts racial on the front foot. Such short shrift. I think will prompt a lot of navel-gazing this morning in and around new york and tell us about the inheritance with the inheritance in a way. It's interesting because it's a place steeped in the Aids pandemic and as several of its winners. Last night said interesting for that. Play to be honored as we are hopefully coming out of another pandemic so it's one pandemic looking back at another pandemic is to play the began at london's young vic moved to the west and then to broadway. Interestingly the critical response to new york wasn't particularly strong the response to slay much stronger. But i think the inheritance Kind of grappled. The voters. imagination's much did this strange application of opposed button. Have on the way that the tonys have been put together took. Everybody's got lots and lots of nominations because you've only got half a season go. Yeah i mean there were there were something like eighteen shows eligible which is not very many and To close march twenty. Twenty for bud close right. When the seasons heft was about to ramp up in the following weeks meant that lots wonderful sounding shows never got to open the joke. Was that all you had to do. A show up on broadway this season to be nominated and in fact that was true in the case of best actress musical a perform. I love actually who won. he was the only nominee in his category. He was the only nominee so guess what he won. How wonderful. i wonder if you're surprised when his neighbors tell us a little bit more about what. The tonys will hopefully doing abroad raina. Because we've we've got through the mess that you've just described and now we have tony's back there for is broadway. Yeah well that's the. That's the real thing i mean the olivier award swisher london's version the tonys for the same equivalent season given out last october. So you could ask well. Why weren't tony's giving out then as well. And the short answer is because there was no broadway at that point. And what the broadway league who administered the tonys decided to do was wait until broadway reopened which it has done as of september fourteenth in. Use the tony awards to kickstart attention towards after all vital part of of the new york economy in the american economy. Which is the broadway theatre so. There's always been thinking that the tonys are really little more than laborat- commercial for broadway. But i think that's really true this year. It's a reminder. That broadway is here it exists even if you have to be masked and vaccinated to enjoy it It is there for you and please come see us. Everything happened on september the fourteenth briefly. How have things been. Have people been filling the seats and well during themselves interesting. The broadway league is no longer reporting attendance for this season. And that's the first time in a very long time that's happened and i think that's because we're not supposed to know the exact answer i think All we know is anecdotally the musicals doing well the pleasure doing less well. Let's see what happens towards the end of the year when there is a whole flood of the shows that should have opened eighteen months ago. Matt thank you so much joining us in the studio. That was the theater critic met wolf. Unless tony's that's all we have for today's perga- many thanks to our producers reese james danube h.

"Then secondly I hope that video as we're now having to do with online stuff the video will start to incorporate in equity and sag will get their act together and be able to work together and make theater have a video component win. Its it services and when it's appropriate interesting but when feeder has a video component is it still theater or is it now video. Well i think that the music industry that that song pop song is still a musical piece even though it has a music video it's still. It's still that the song the lyrics. The composition of the melody is still the essential element. Even though you've now added a video part to it. I'm really i really. I was asking. That wasn't rhetorical. I i wonder. Yeah what i don't know i mean people still go to football games even watch. Tv it never televising. Sports never stopped. He wasn't going person. I i agree with you that there is something special. That is a stage production. That isn't tv or film. So yes that is correct. And i and. I don't think that's ever going to change now. But i but. I hope that equity in particular can start to embrace win. Things can be on video when things can be you know performed in new york but yet someone in iowa can see it or vice versa. It's gonna change for sure. I agree with you it because this is happening whether we like it or not right so we just gotta figure out how it's done work. We've opened up. We've uncorked the bow. You know what i mean. It's it's we're not going back so i'll be curious to see well. The twenty twenty one broadway season is already underway as the tony awards. Prepare to finally honor the twenty twenty season now. Some of the shows that closed last year have already reopened big hits like haiti's town waitress hamilton. The lion king and wicked. Then there's the new shows for this upcoming season like passover lackawanna blues david burns american utopia and the much anticipated opening of six which had actually started preview performances last season but broadway shut down the very night it was to open so this fall holds a lot of anticipation and probably expectation of what many of us hope will be a resurgence of theater. And the back of the bright lights of broadway. Well i'm your host patrick.

"Tony emini worthy to have the category completely eliminated would imply that. None of those plays were deserving of any accolades. But it certainly very rare that a plays ever nominated. So it's not like it would have been as much of a snub as it is toward lightening the correct. That's exactly so. Do you think that original musicals are dying off. Because the three musicals that are up all used jukebox or previously found music. So do you think original musicals or in the flux right now now. I i don't think that they're influx anymore than the theater. Businesses being closed in general. If you look at what audiences have really responded to. As far as buying tickets in the past in the most recent years you had hamilton was the opposite the biggest. And then do you have an anson cleanly original no star not a jukebox original score. This is what people are spending hundreds of dollars. A ticket for gentleman's guide falls into that as well sure but i mean general gentleman's guide absolutely does and that was a great show and that was not like him. I'm talking about like these. may the juggernauts. Yeah but and i hear people say broadly day. Yes it's becoming. It's all jukebox The audiences really do still craves and they are showing this with what they're paying for. An original musical is look at their when it's done. Well amilton hanson. People are willing to come out of work to come see it so i don't think the narrative that they only want jukebox musicals false and also it's not really fair. I think it's i think it's not correct. But i do think that producers are putting out more jukebox. Or it well known. Material instead of original musicals. I i do think there's an imbalance there. It's much safer yeah dear. Evan hansen was an incredible gamble when they were doing that. Show originally there was no see. No one was ben. Plows not stamos in that show it was. It was a creative team that you know we knew in the community but was not known internationally like navy. They are now right and it was a show about teen suicide. I mean the there were so many risks. There is so much at stake to put that on broadway like that really could have bombed not because it wasn't good but because you could look at that as a producer we have no one famous. We don't have title anyone's heart of and it's about kids killing themselves. I mean who the hell wants to go to that so it involves a good amount of risk i just. I don't really think that the musicals dying off. I just think that there aren't that many good ones that people are willing to spend that kind of money for. It's really really hard to write a useful as it's been up and it takes a long time to correct now with that date in mind. You know march twelfth which is when actually everything shutdown down could. They have stuck with that and used video footage or had had the previews and made that count. Is there a way that they could have made it work with a march twelfth date. I don't think so because you can't guarantee that tony. Tony nominating committee sought the tony. Nominating committee is very leaker. People in that. It's not a huge group will. According to variety magazine there are more than eight hundred. Fifty tony voters but the actual nominating committee only has fifty four. That's a group of like previous tony winners. And it's people from all departments yet lighting design. Tony pass winners and set design and orchestrator is a pretty great people telling leading committee so if they didn't get to see it then it's not fair but do you think of used video or recordings or anything now because you can't you can't judge someone's lighting design off video and for that matter you shouldn't really judge someone's live performance offering video either but you're evaluating this is it's the tony awards the awards for live theatre. It's not right to show it to someone on video and expect them evaluated for tony award. It otherwise he'd be giving them an oscar an emmy. It's not meant to be done on strain and it can't be evaluated on screen so i don't know what the solution was. This was a really hard situation. Because i think a lot of people were deserving of accolades at the same time though. It's sucks that it was like winning the gold medal in the olympics on all the other athletes bus broke down. It doesn't matter how slow you ran. You still got the gold medal and you know what do you do. You can't cancel the race. Yeah true so what do you think. This is going to say for next year's tony's if if there is one because because as of right now it doesn't look like broadway is gonna open up till fall of twenty one. Maybe summer fall twenty one which would be after the season anyway instead. We're talking june twenty twenty. Two right would be the next tony awards and they're certainly not going to go back and pick up any shows that opened or were part of the season unless they opened again right unless unless they like. I think you know if six and company revival and girl from north country. And i think all of those shows come back and of course they will be eligible for the next one right given the cast may be dead from old age but i think that of course they will be. Everyone will be eligible to open aerobics. The tony's but at the word the awards won't be for the following june. Yeah it's also it's also why they had to do something now for this one because otherwise you wouldn't be voting on tina turner. The musical in june of twenty twenty two people would be like what did i see that you know what i mean like. It'll be so be two years after the socks so so you definitely think they should have had the tony awards this year like. Maybe they should have done the summer whenever whenever they actually set that february nineteenth date. But i don't think they should have had them. I think that they should have some acknowledgement of what they thought was excellent. I think it's an unprecedented.
