Re: 2018 Tony Awards

Neil Patrick Harris comes off like a total dick in that exchange.

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

You guys have covered a lot of my general thoughts about the overall show already, so I'll just pop in to say that I'm so happy for Laurie Metcalf’s relatively unexpected Tony win for Best Featured Actress in a Play for Three Tall Women last night. I was very much thinking they were going to give it...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

In yesterday’s news was also Guiliani openly musing that Trump could literally murder James Comey in the Oval Office and nothing would happen to him. Can you imagine some mafioso type who is under a criminal investigation saying such a thing about a witness in his case? I thought that was just an as...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

GULP, every day just takes us further and further into uncharted territory. Assume this is related to him tweeting out today that he can pardon himself? I feel like he’s floating this as a possibility to get people used to the idea. No one is above the law. This is completely anti-thetical to the v...

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

I have been listening to Gypsy this weekend, alternating cast recordings, so it was a nice surprise to log on here and see the Imelda Staunton posts. I think she is absolutely superb in the role; her “Rose’s Turn” is one of my favorites. I would highly recommend Bernadette Peters’ performance of the...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Wasn’t the start of the investigation really in summer of 2016? He could be factoring that into the “three” figure.

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

Mart Crowley’s groundbreaking play The Boys in the Band opened right after the Tony Award nominations for this year, but I’m going to put my review of it in this thread because I think Jim Parsons’ performance could figure into next year’s nominations. (Apparently, Parsons was injured during yesterd...

Yeah, what exactly are you referencing here, Sabin? It’s impossible to know, as Bog states.

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

The revival this Broadway season of Edward Albee's Three Tall Women is an extraordinary achievement. The obvious draw here is being able to see the legendary two-time Academy Award winner Glenda Jackson in her dominant Tony-nominated role as "A." Jackson must be viewed as the presumptive w...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

Michelle Williams give an absolutely hysterical performance in the latest Amy Schumer movie I Feel Pretty. I literally burst out laughing when she had her first line and pretty much was any time she was back on the screen. The movie has some problems bit she steals the entire thing.

Andrew Sean Greer - Less Runners-Up: Elif Batuman - The Idiot Hernan Diaz - In the Distance By coincidence, I am just in the middle of Batuman's excellent novel (it is on the shortlist of the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award), and I've just started on Greer's winning novel.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Prediction: when we look back on this day in history, learning that Michael Cohen was indeed in Prague in late summer 2016 will turn out to be way more significant than the strike on Syria -- despite the latter being the shiny object that's knocked everything else off cable news stations for the pa...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

This has been the best birthday present ever! (I’m fucking 40 today - gah!!) Trump is apparently in complete meltdown mode right now inside the White House. I really couldn’t tell you what will happen by week’s end but, like Tee, I think this has clearly revealed that Mueller is heading into a new (...

The newest remake of A Star is Born starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper (and also directed by the latter) has been pushed to October 2018 from an original May release date in order to make a run for awards consideration. Sean Penn and Barbra Streisand have both openly gushed about the film. Could ...
