Tony Awards offer some dramatic possibilities

Tony Awards offer some dramatic possibilities
By Christopher Wallenberg GLOBE CORRESPONDENT
JUNE 09, 2017

NEW YORK — What does Broadway look like in the year A.H. (After “Hamilton”)? Last season, Lin Manuel-Miranda’s juggernaut washed over the competition at the Tony Awards like a tidal wave. So this could have been a lackluster year by comparison, as some had predicted, but instead a pack of popular, celebrated, even game-changing contenders arrived in both the musical and play genres. With tight races in several main categories, expect some big drama on Tony night (let’s just hope the presenters open the correct envelopes). Here are our predictions — and preferences — for the winners in each of the major categories. Read More

Why this year’s Tony Awards may be ‘a little muted’

Why this year’s Tony Awards may be ‘a little muted’

As the Tony Award telecast starts to come together, there’s concern that the June 11 show might be, as one Broadway insider puts it, “a little muted.”

CBS, which broadcasts the Tonys, likes big numbers from high-profile shows. And while this year’s crop of new musicals is diverse and exciting, there’s no “Hamilton”-size blockbuster. Nor are there showstopping songs along the lines of “Circle of Life” from “The Lion King” or “Defying Gravity” from “Wicked” — powerful songs that can stand on their own terms, out of the show’s context.

On The Paparazzi: “The paparazzi haven’t been too much of a problem. You expect them at premieres and things. That’s your job. Let’s face it. But the other day my husband and I were having lunch at an outside cafe in New York.

On The Paparazzi: “The paparazzi haven’t been too much of a problem. You expect them at premieres and things. That’s your job. Let’s face it. But the other day my husband and I were having lunch at an outside cafe in New York. I told him ‘That guy over there is photographing us.’ He said “Oh, you think everyone is photographing you.’ Yeah sure. The photograph came out the next day, and I didn’t look so hot.” (Herald-Journal – Apr 8, 1997) Read More

The night may belong to those in the music world, but a comedy star will be presiding over it again.

BetteBack February 25, 1996: Women Make Strides At The Grammys

Of all the award categories devised by the National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences, none is a less reliable gauge of talent than the Grammy for best new artist. Faster than you can say “one-hit wonder,” a host of winners have become no-hit stumblers.
Are you out there, Bobbie Gentry, Men at Work, Debby Boone and Mark Cohn? (See Timeline on Page 3.)

But even if this year’s best new artist nominees enjoy only a brief stay in the commercial sun – which seems unlikely, particularly for rockers Alanis Morissette and Joan Osborne – the women who dominate the category still will have contributed to one of Grammy’s most compelling statements.
