The Tony’s once again proved to be the gold standard for award shows. A great host, Neil Patrick Harris…and performances from all the musical contenders…doesn’t get any better than that. The big winner of the night was The Book of Mormon raking in nine statues including best musical. In the play department the magnificent War Horse won for best play…look for it to make its way to Toronto in February.
There is good news on the Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark front. The past few weeks has ticket sales north of $1 million each week…which is a good thing since the production currently has a $75 million price tag…still a long way to go to recoup but at least there is new interest in what has been a very troubled production throughout the unprecedented number of previews.
