Nothing too exciting this year as far as I can tell. Million-Dollar Quartet and Memphis look pretty snazzy. If I were to get free tickets to one of the nominated shows, I might pick Finnian's Rainbow, but I bet I'd settle on
Come Fly Away-- an all dance musical to nothing but Frank Sinatra vocals + a big band. No script, no singing-- just movement tells the story. This show better win choreography! It's amah-zing.
A number of crazy new shows (including an Adamms Family musical) and "meh" fad musicals. I about panicked when I saw that my beloved Ragtime is in revival and I wouldn't be able to go see it, but it appears that they've killed the magic completely; the choreography and acting are weak. All in all, I'm still excited for the show.
June 13th! THE TONY'S ARE COMING.
