    Hilarious that every aspect of Funny Girl was snubbed aside from Grimes (#Justice4JulieBenko); devastated that the women of SIX couldn't have all been nominated for Actress a la the Billy Elliot boys or something.

    Rumor on deuxmoi is that Cabaret is transferring over and will open Spring 2023. Obviously take it with a grain of salt but it makes sense.

    Oh lord, Jessie Buckley vs. Victoria Clark in Leading Actress. And if Into the Woods actually transfers and we get Heather Headley in the mix as well? Whew.

    The Strange Loop OCR kind of sucks. If you were to listen to it I would suggest the Larry Owens version. He just has better enunciation and emotion.

    So do we think Larry's replacement will win the Tony, or is it Hugh?

    I just hung out with a guy who is a two time Tony winner for producing. And I tried to ask him gently about the the 20+ producers being nominated for a show, etc. And he understood completely where I was coming from. And, I'm sure you all know the answer to this already, but it was fun to hear it from the actual person's mouth, but anyway, yeah, like he said, typically 9 times out of 10 a broadway show will usually fail, or not make a profit, so the majority of the time, the investors are taking a huge risk. And yeah, unlike film, where there's tons variations of producers, in broadway, investors can basically be a producer, and many times the nominated "producer" probably won't even see the show and have no actual involvement. And he said, while yes, they rely a ton of the investors and love them of course, and all that stuff, but yeah, the also say the sometimes get frustrated by the pointless nomination (and he said that didn't really start until the past decade or two). But overall he said, well, they invest the money, they help get the money made, if in the end they have to give them a Tony nominations for it, well, it's not a bad deal.

    Only new elements of the production were eligible. Jaquel Spivey won Actor. The off-Broadway version competed in 2020.

    This. A Strange Loop cleaned up at the Drama Desks back in 2020, too, winning every category it was nominated for except Outstanding Music (while winning Outstanding Lyrics). Its Tonys prospects are fine. Honestly, Spivey's win here is a good sign for the Tonys, too. I had some doubts, but it seems like Jackman will be a non-factor, and the Tonys historically favor Leading Actors in Best Musical winners, even when they're underdogs (Tony Shalhoub, Steve Kazee, and the Billy Elliots, for three examples), not to mention Ben Platt, Leslie Odom, Jr., Michael Cerveris, Billy Porter, etc. Spivey is in it to win it.

    I think Spivey’s a lock to be honest.

    Feels like a punt of a Tony for Larry Owens. It's still surprising to me he didn't do the Broadway run.
