O All You Hosts of Heaven


Am quite thrilled with this year’s OBIE hosts. Popular, droll choices, both. Must say with no little embarrassment that I haven’t seen much of Cynthia Nixon onstage (she was off doing TV and films for most of my New York years), but have long hailed her as my favorite of the Sex and the City quartet. And whatever the reviews for Miss Jean Brodie said, I believe Ms. Nixon is very much in her prime. And unspeakaby gorgeous. I’ve seen T.R. Knight years ago in Jessica Goldberg’s strange and lovely play The Hologram Theory and have subsequently adored him.

As far as I know, a few of the presenter slots have not yet been filled. Who would you most like to see handing out the awards?
