Miss Banshee

It's the Year of the Octogenarians, man. Betty White, Angie Lansbury, hell, is my granny next?

Miss Banshee

Oh SNAP, Angela smacks down lazy students!

Alyssa

Nigel looks so thrilled to be standing next to Frasier...

jodifur

I'd like to see Sondheim on Sondheim. It sounds very interesting.

Miss Banshee

Sondheim on Sondheim is being filmed for TV, prolly PBS Great Performances. FYI. (Squee.)

jodifur

She was very good in Promises, Promises. The show was bad, the performances were good.

Alyssa

mah gay boyfriend saw Sondheim on Sondheim. He still cries a little when he talks about it.

Mary Beth Graham

Okay, what show is Mark Sanchez in?

jodifur

my husband came downstairs to see the NY Jet.

jodifur

MEMPHIS. MEMPHIS.

Alyssa

Oh, hey, Jodifur, do you think maybe Memphis should win?

Miss Banshee

Ok, the sound dept. is drunk or something tonight. The gaffs with the mics are getting shameful.

jodifur

his mike went out, are you kidding me? He is running the sound on this show?

JennL

serious sound issues...

jodifur

that should have been who is running the sound on this show?

JennL

of course, because i've been waiting all night for Memphis.

Alyssa

Yeah, I'm thinking maybe I should have held out on the marriage front until I checked out the NY Jets player who loves musicals...

jodifur

@Alyssa-a little bit. But this performance is not doing the show any justice. Stupid sound issues. The show was amazing.

Miss Banshee

Ahem. That was awesome. Thank you, Bon Jovi drummer. JERSEY REPRESENT.

Alyssa

They didn't get screwed as bad at the guys from the quartet. They were silent for a full 30 seconds.

jodifur

@JennL-Yeah! Another Memphis lover. So I no longer sound like an idiot. (Well, I still do, but I have back up.)

Miss Banshee

heh, I just IMed my brother (he's a sound engineer) and told him the Tonys are a mess. He's all "Not my gig, OBVIOUSLY." He's so humble. /sarcasm

jodifur

@M.B.-I think he is the keyboard player.

Alyssa

I really love "A Little Night Music", I really do not love Cat Zeta's voice... am wary.

jodifur

is anyone else getting captcha on typepad even if you are logged in? I'm starting to hate typepad.

Out-Numbered

This is fucking bullshit! CATS should have cleaned up tonight. So fixed. The awards that is. Not the CATS.

jodifur

@Alyssa-my parent saw it. They said it was good.

Miss Banshee

The writers are AWESOME tonight.

Kelly Beckman-Crabtree

I'm a little disappointed that Cheno's boob didn't pop out when she fell down.

jodifur

Really? The addams family?

JennL

@Jodifur - I really love Memphis, too! i got your back...

on another note, i kinda wished i looked like Cheno. just for a day. to see what it's like.

jodifur

okay, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS GUY TALKING ABOUT?

jodifur

@out-numbered-it is not 1988.

Alyssa

I will wear black for a year when Sondheim dies.

JennL

now that's a muumuu!

jodifur

Ok, I love Sondheim. I really, really do. I however, do not like Send in the Clowns. This song makes me stabby. I'm sorry.

Alyssa

yep... zeta jones is irritating me as usual. Grrrrr.

Kelly Beckman-Crabtree

I really hate Send in the Clowns.

Miss Banshee

SOUND ENGINEERS! Put down the crack pipes!!!!!

JennL

she's like fingernails on a chalkboard for me.

Kelly Beckman-Crabtree

She sounds like she's trying to kill something with her voice.

Alyssa

I love it in context of the play. I agree by itself I don't see the big deal. I don't think they will include any of the dialogue that actually goes with it, sadly.

Miss Banshee

THIS is stunt casting gone bad.

JennL

she really EMOTING.

Kelly Beckman-Crabtree

Is it just me or was she a little extra sweaty?

Alyssa

THANK YOU, Kelly and JennL. I can't stand listening to that woman sing. I've never seen her sing without over-acting the shit out of a song. Keep your head still for 5 seconds!

jodifur

I loved Ragtime the 1st time it was on Broadway.

Miss Banshee

@Kelly, I'd be sweating buckets if my mic went out in the middle of the Tonys. That said, she's really not good.

Mary Beth Graham

I usually like Catherine Zeta Jones, but what was hanging down from her hair line? Little disconcerting. Also, enunciation is important but E.V.E.R.Y letter?

JennL

as i am prone to over-schwitzing for no good reason, i will not throw stones at CZJ in this one arena. : )

Kelly Beckman-Crabtree

Off topic: Hawaii Five-O? Seriously CBS?

Miss Banshee

@Mary Beth: wig lace and her mic. Apparently the sweating got to CZJ's hairline as well.

jodifur

Really, the Tony's could be like an hour. But I feel like that about all awards shows.

jodifur

I have such a girl crush on Indina Menzel.

Alyssa

Idina... do we really need to be told what Ragtime is about?

jodifur

I love this song.

Miss Banshee

Ragtime was back on B'way? I saw it last time around and it was extraordinary. Damn, I'm behind the times.

Alyssa

she did look beautiful.

Kelly Beckman-Crabtree

Now that's singing.

Miss Banshee

@jodi this song makes me weep in the context of the show. Of course, this SHOW makes me weep.

jodifur

@M.B.-yeah, they "reimagined it." It previewed in D.C. It is exactly the same but a little bit shorter. The original case was better.

JennL

oh, indina, i love you so.

Mary Beth Graham

We don't get the rest of the cast of Ragtime?

Alyssa

Viola looks so happy. I love her.

jodifur

I've heard really good things about Race.

jodifur

@M.B.-that should be original CAST was better.

Miss Banshee

Lend Me A Tenor is a fab show. I'd love to see it on B'way.

jodifur

@Mary Beth-I think with revivals they do something shorter. But we got a much longer piece from La Cage. Probably b/c that is going to win.

Kelly Beckman-Crabtree

I did a production of Lend me a Tenor in high school. I suspect this one is much better.

Kelly Beckman-Crabtree

If liev talks much longer I'll think I'm watching discovery channel.

jodifur

This is totally unnecessary. Are they trying to steal the montage from the oscars?

JennL

right about now i am missing NPH horribly!

Miss Banshee

@JennL I KNOW! Where the hell is NPH???

jodifur

Really? Annie? Again? or is he kidding? We are taking michael to a local production next month.

Mary Beth Graham

Now, there's an Annie I'd go see! I can't believe I saw the first one, a million years ago!

JennL

love Jack as Annie!!!

Kelly Beckman-Crabtree

I'd give my husband's left ball to look as good as Helen.

Miss Banshee

if I could be 1/24th as cool and gorgeous as Helen M. at her age, I'd be a happy woman.

JennL

but no desire to see Annie the show back again.

Miss Banshee

Fences has an amazing current cast. Would be an amazing show to see.

JennL

i've been waiting for someone to thank god.

Miss Banshee

Viola! No spoilers! :)

Alyssa

Except when they say "God" they mean Andrew Mackintosh (have no idea what the straight play equivalent would be)

Miss Banshee

Alfred Molina has a pinhead. That was unkind of me.
