This week’s column is a breathless triumph that sums up the Broadway season by interviewing various notables at a Tony nominees meet-and-greet where they grabbed at plaques and press ops.
*What Gladys Knight has to do with the upcoming reimagining of Jekyll & Hyde
*What Bonnie & Clyde has to do with the upcoming reimagining of Cinderella
*What happens to Ricky Martin whenever he’s onstage
*Why the male star of Once breaks down crying some nights during the show
*What happens as a result of the Whoopi lady’s sunglasses being bedazzled in Ghost The Musical
*Who’s on top, Newsies or Once?
*And what the wondrous Cynthia Nixon gave to people who visited her after seeing the cancer drama Wit.
No, it wasn’t contagious.
With tidbits like that, this column truly deserves a nomination–but I’m holding out for the committee to deem it a play with songs rather than a musical.
It’ll give me a better chance of winning!
