你说约德尼罗?

He's not supposed to look like young De Niro, he's playing a character. I don't really have a beef with the occasional old man movement/voices either. It's a foggy memory piece by an unreliable narrator.“-蒂姆

The FX are not good. Such a bad choice from Scorsese, it takes you out of the movie every time.-Remy

舞台门:在托尼奖最佳音乐提名

by Nathaniel R

Though I have not seen as much Broadway theater as I'd hoped to this year, I have finally managed to see all of the nominees in the big kahuna Tony category: Best Musical. This is the marquee category each year in that it's the one that matters financially and for bragging rights the way "Best Picture," "Drama Series," and "Album of the Year" are saved for last at the Oscars, Emmys, and Grammys respectively... even if you might personally think other prizes more significant or telling. Let's rank the nominees after the jump, shall we?

首先,一个冷酷的事实:它是一个合法糟糕的一年在百老汇音乐剧的新只用一个特殊的节目出现。(是的,百老汇莫名其妙了破纪录的赛季,但是,与电影,永远提高你的价格也有可能使票房纪录更简单的方法来打破,即使它破坏的艺术形式,从长远来看。)去年,例如有两个节目的大奖“来远离”和“亲爱的埃文·汉森”那名与评论家和公众的一致好评既合法感觉竞争。还有一个提名,虽然不是一个重磅炸弹,受到广泛的喜爱和推崇即“娜塔莎皮埃尔和1812年的大彗星”。他们都不是基于电影或电视节目!第四提名去年,你可能会说是叫填料,是“土拨鼠日”,这是当然的基础上,1993年打的电影。

今年是逆主要在于,只有一个真正值得展示和所有4个(而不是4:1)从电影或电视源如雨后春笋。让我们开始...

TONY NOMINEES FOR BEST MUSICAL, RANKED

托尼·肖尔豪布和卡特里娜伦克在“乐队的访问”

1。THE BAND'S VISIT
This unique and gorgeous production almost doesn't feel like a Broadway show. It's far quieter and more dimly lit than most shows and short on the traditionally expected "spectacle." That might make it a longshot to win alot下星期天我,尽管这是一个很简单的打赌take the top prize. Where it does succeed in spades, and what makes it worthy of the Best Musical win, is in its cumulative emotional power. The show may be small and minimalist (comparatively to what usually hits Broadway) but the book is wisely judged by Itamar Moses and the score by David Yazbeck is sublime.The Band's Visitis only 90 minutes long but packs a stealth wallop. There's also the added thrill of incredible musicianship. Most of the titular band is played by real absurdly talented musicians - the violinist in particular being a standout. The musical is based on the international Israeli hitThe Band's Visitwhich starred the great late Ronit Elkabetz. That said it doesn't actually feel like a movie adaptation (which is a big compliment since so few works are sufficiently rethought for a change of medium.) Best in show is Tony-nominated leading actress Katrina Lenk who may well win the Tony. She doesn't quite reinterpret the role, letting the spirit of Ronit Elkabetz be her guide, but she nails the physicality and lyricism of the part. She can also act up a storm with her vocals as in the musical's exquisite centerpiece song "Omar Sharif" in which she loses herself in the memories of Arabic movies she watched as a child.

预测命运: Five wins for Best Musical, Best Actress (Katrina Lenk), Best Score (David Yazbeck), Best Director, and Best Sound Design.

Readers, I honestly hate the use of projections on Broadway. Give me real sets 100% of the time.

2.贱女孩
Tina Fey's beloved high school comedy is a far more traditional case of bringing a hit movie to the stage, in that it's impossible to imagine it existing as anything more than a companion to the original. Brand awareness goes a long way in justifying $100+ tickets to tourists. The score is sadly generic (a typical problem with screen-to-stage transfers) but the musical is actually funny (relief!) and the book by Tina Fey has a few smart decisions about the new medium, chief among them being the framing device where Janis and Damian basically narrate Cady's journey as a "cautionary tale," direct to the audience. This makes the show feel more legitimately like a piece of theater than a movie acted out for you on a stage. (Other choices are half thought out. It was a masterstroke to have one actor playing all the adult women, for example, and they chose the brilliant Kerry Butler to do that but then they give her barely anything to do! "Cool Mom" was begging for a big comic number. Where is it?) Best in show is easily the Tony-nominated Ashley Park as Gretchen Weiners who deftly handles the task of making her arc and songs both hilarious and emotionally resonant (no one else succeeds in that). Runner up is Tony-nominated Grey Henson as Damian, who gets a show-stopping tap number called "Stop" which is basically the musical equivalent of that old web series "Sassy Gay Friend" (remember SGF's quotable catchphrase: 'look at your life, look at your choices!'?. Second runner up (what? these three are just delightful!) was Kate Rockwell as Karen, the dumbest girl in school. Sadly, it's a complete mystery to me why Taylor Louderman was nominated as Regina George. I wasn't able to understand half of her lyrics with her vocal choices and she wasn't particularly funny either. Perhaps it was an off night for her when I was there?

预测命运: One win - Tina Fey, Book of a Musical. I think Fey's celebrity and likeability make her tough to beat even though it's maybe not the most inspired reinvention of the material, despite the contemporary updates.

3. SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS
这里以前审查。I will say that this show is technically far more creatively imagined than贱女孩so theonly原因,我的排名是较低的是,我只是真的没有对此作出回应;我有一个更好的时间贱女孩。In other words, I'm just not the audience for this show. Important note: I know some people in their early 20s who absolutely adore it so perhaps you had to grow up with海绵宝宝

预测命运:四胜托尼最佳布景设计,最佳灯光设计......还有......我也h​​esistantly预测最佳男演员伊桑·斯莱特(因此犯!)和特色演员的加文·李为章鱼哥(的节目只有一部分我明确了/爱)虽然那些即使他们没有在他们的类别赢得了剧评人奖高风险的赌注。为什么犹豫?那么,斯莱特是对抗后起之秀约书亚·亨利andawards magnet Tony Shalhoub, while Tony magnet Norbert Leo Butz could win a third in Lee's category.

4.冷冻
Our contributor Dancin Dan'reviewed this one here。我喜欢它even less虽然这不是没有几个迷人的比特/演员。然而,我们会感谢秀口渴陷阱我们熟悉蒂姆othy Hughes(who also played the Strong Man in最伟大的肖曼this past Christmas) and for two cool visual effects moments.

预测命运:零托尼奖......但它只是为两只反正(最佳音乐和音乐的书),并在这些类别的提名表明,托尼投票系统确实需要考虑季节地方很少节目值得注意萎缩的类别或资格。

一些预测可能下降,因为音乐的复兴类别包括窈窕淑女,一旦这个岛,andCarouselreviewed here) is strong this year and some of the craft and acting Tonys could go that way instead.

感谢上帝,别人谁想到阿什利公园和凯特·罗克韦尔均贱女孩的杰出女性!我听到很多人唱泰勒·劳德曼的赞美,我只是不明白这一点。我认为这部分是她是如何引导,但 - 她扮演里贾纳太向外流氓我喜欢,即使她有一些有趣的时刻。我就像一对监听的比我看到它后立即做了制录音,但音乐的通用的质量后更好的歌曲减弱歌词的聪明。

Even though I enjoyed Mean Girls, I would rank Spongebob above it for the overall more tuneful score, more inventive staging/design, and more clever (if perhaps less outright hilarious) book. But they're close, and worthy runners-up. After Joshua Henry's jaw-dropping "Soliloquy" I will be pissed if anyone else wins the Leading Actor Tony, even the delightful Ethan Slater, but Gavin Lee would be a delightful "Featured" Actor winner.

乐队的访问,并一旦在这个岛上将获胜。
I myself prefer Mean Girls and My Fair Lady.
Tina Fey is definitely winning Best Book.
Ashley Park for the win!
我预测海绵的导演将赢得太。
Frozen is just too mediocre and their Anna is dreadful.

I love that you only "got" Squidward because I always hear people say his character seems to be inspired by a gay man.

I am curious as to people's thoughts on Lauren Ambrose in My Fair Lady. Does she have a chance to win?

君e 6, 2018 |Michael R

我感到非常震惊约书亚没有赢得戏曲书桌奖。我希望他执行它星期天。SANS衬衫。

I think in 1985 several categories were actually not presented because there weren't enough potential candidates, including the Best Actor/Actress in a Musical awards. Would that still happen today, or would it seem more embarrassing to drop a category completely instead of having it filled with lesser shows/nominees?

君e 6, 2018 |阿拉贝拉

阿什利公园是在今年的KPOP的苦老化耍大牌。看着她坐在单纯英尺远的地方离我高歌一些是我见过的在纽约剧院最神奇的时刻之一。我真的希望她得到了托尼。
