As you can tell, I’ve been too busy to update this blog!!!!! RAAAAAAR!
*sits panting, admiring the wreckage, contemplating life*
But here’s why:
I’m going to do a quick rundown of all the shows I’ve covered in some way for Backstage, which double as my NYC theater recommendations. If you can, do yourself a favor and check out some of this year’s extraordinary shows, many of which were just nominated for Tony Awards.
Fun Home: I cried so much during this musical, I was dehydrated. Possibly the most affecting, cathartic, brilliant, gorgeous, and wondrously personal show anyone could see. A lot has been written about its creators Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron, here’s my humble addition to that.
The Heidi Chronicles: duh.
On the Twentieth Century: double duh. (KRISTIN IS CO-HOSTING THE TONYS!!)
Something Rotten!: See it if you loved Spamalot. It’s almost as good as The Book of Mormon.
Airline Highway: Not quite enough Tony recognition, but oh lord what a great play.
Wolf Hall: Ben Miles was just nominated. Yes.
Skylight: Matthew Beard kept up with his co-stars Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy, and they’re all nominated.
It’s Only a Play: Micah Stock was the only non-name in this revival and he stole the show!
I have not seen The King and I yet. Nor The Visit. Sue me. I hear they’re great.
