A slew of acclaimed shows were up for Tony Awards in a remarkably competitive year, but a production that wasn’t even eligible still managed to cast a shadow — well, shall we make that a web? — over the proceedings.
Producers said Tuesday they’ll be moving the show off-Broadway to New World Stages on 50th Street in July after more than a year performing at the Nederlander Theatre.
I thought it might be kind of cute to have those snubbed for nominations present the statues. For instance, have Robin Williams present the award for Best Actor in a play and Radcliffe hand out the award for Best Actor in A Musical — but that’s just one reason I’m not on any committee that hands out anything.
Nikki M. James isn’t about to let the fact that she grew up idolizing Patti LuPone stop her from trying to beat the Broadway icon at the Tony Awards.
