Since I'm just back from vacation and catching up on a mountain of work, as well as all the latest theatre news, I thought I'd use today to pause and let you know what I'm reading:
The eternally effervescent Sarah at Adventures in the Endless Pursuit of Entertainment offers an illuminating piece on the organization responsible for the Tony Awards: The American Theatre Wing.
New England's finest bloggers Chris Caggiano (Everything I Know I Learned from Musicals) and Esther (Gratuitous Violins) tell us how The Drowsy Chaperone is faring on its Boston tour stop. Chris comes at it from the perspective of a long-time fan, while Esther has seen it for the first time.
Broadway Undercover was fortunate to get into the actual catered affair for A Catered Affair and snapped a few photos in the process. Meanwhile Modern Fabulousity tells us to ignore Big Ben's take on the musical and just go see it. I will, ModFab, in about a week, and given all those Drama Desk nominations, I'm really looking forward to it.
And finally, a reminder from my new best friends Andrew and Phil of the West End Whingers that there really have been worse musicals than Gone With The Wind (read: Carrie). Last Thursday, I spotted a story delineating the 10 worst musicals of all time as endured by London's Telegraph.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
