TONY awards and updates

Not much to say about the Tonys... but I wanted to mention them anyway. I was disappointed that Sweeney Todd lost for everything but best direction (and a little bit shocked that it lost best revival... what is that about?), but whatever. I guess I'm happy for John Lloyd Young, cause he went to my school and has been all over our "Alums and Friends" notices today... but I haven't seen Jersey Boys, so I can't comment on his performance. I loved the speech of the guy who won best actor in a play. So cute. And it was cool to see Ian McDarmid and Cynthia Nixon win. I also enjoyed Julia Roberts' conciliatory "you are all very talented people" bit; it seems she's learned her place in the showbiz world (i.e. movie star ONLY).

Still, I just can't seem to get into the Tonys the way I get into the oscars, even though I love live theater. I will continue to watch them, though... I am a whore like that.

In other news, I have received Email confirmation that Silkwood is on its way, so I should have access to it tomorrow (unfortunately, I inadvertently got big plot spoilers when I went looking for Karen Silkwood images to post... damn). I think I'm going to amp up my netflix subscription to 2-at-a-time for the summer, so this marathon can go more quickly.

Also, the Deer Hunter entry is revamped and completed (I rewrote the review, gave it a grade and added a new image for kicks)... so go have a look-see if you want. That's it till Silkwood. Have fun.

You'd probably get into the Tony's more if

a) You saw all the plays and musicals, and
b) were surrounded by other Tony obsessors.

It is, but most likely the original Sweeney Todd, aka, not the revival version.

Well, no particular "version" of a show is adapted, cause the adpatation is really another "version" in itself... who knows what Burton will do with it.

But yes, it is being made into a film, and you probably heard it on Nat's blog, cause he's discussed it.
