In conclusion, I would hate to be on the Tonys committee this year

PLAYBILL SALE

(not all pictured)

Alright guys! So I owe my parents $250 for Dear Evan Hansen tickets so I’m selling some playbills! I have researched what other people are selling them for and I hope you’ll find the prices reasonable. Of course some of the prices are negotiable. Buy two or more and receive some window brochures for other shows! If you want to see the playbill before you purchase or want to know who was in the show or who signed it, message me! If you are interested in purchasing please message me!

Sara’s One-Week-Out Tony Nomination Predictions

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! All the eligible musicals are open, all the pre-tony nominations are out, and it’s officially awards season, folks!! I’d like to preface this by saying I haven’t seen any shows this season, so please don’t treat this list as if I have any authority. I just read a lot of reviews, listen to a lot of cast recordings and really love broadway. This is simply me having fun.

Best Musical:

  • Dear Evan Hansen 
  • Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812 - winner
  • Come From Away
  • Groundhog Day

I think its safe to say that DEH, Comet, and Come From Away are locks in this category, considering the lukewarm to dreadful reviews for most of the other new musicals this season. The fourth slot is really what’s up for grabs. Groundhog Day has gotten some good reviews, did really well in London, and based off of what I’ve listened to it’s a really fun show. That said, Anastasia, War Paint, and Bandstand are also strong contenders that could replace it. If there’s a fifth slot, I think Anastasia is the next most likely.

Best Revival of a Musical

  • Falsettos
  • Sunset Boulevard 
  • Hello, Dolly! - winner

Unfortunately, Tony rules dictate that only three shows will probably get nominated this year, unless a fourth show is within three(?) nominating votes. I think Hello, Dolly! is probably going to win, with Falsettos having the small potential to make an upset. (If SITPWG was eligible it would be a strong contender to win, but fortunately for Dolly, it’s not.) That said, because there are only three slots, there’s a potential that Falsettos won’t even be nominated since it closed so long ago and Miss Saigon is also very viable. 

Best Actor in a Musical

  • Ben Platt, Dear Evan Hansen - winner
  • Andy Karl, Groundhog Day
  • Josh Groban, Great Comet
  • Christian Borle, Falsettos
  • David Hyde Pierce, Hello, Dolly!

Ben Platt has had Tony buzz since DEH’s DC tryout, which is particularly impressive since his performance was able to cut through the Hamilton noise. That said, Andy Karl won in London and has the benefit of being in a show that opened more recently so he would be my second guess to take the win. Corey Cott and Jon Jon Briones are also in the mix for nominations and could replace Borle or Pierce. 

Best Actress in a Musical

  • Bette Midler, Hello, Dolly! - winner
  • Denee Benton, Great Comet
  • Patti Lupone, War Paint
  • Christine Ebersole, War Paint
  • Eva Nobladeza, Miss Saigon

I think Bette’s the closest thing to a lock we have this season. If Glenn Close was eligible, she’d be a strong challenge, but right now its all Bette. That said, I really don’t know much about this category. My reasoning for Patti and Christine is that nominators might want to give nominations to these two individually rather than giving War Paint a best musical nom, since my impression is that they’re kind of carrying a somewhat drab show. The fifth slot, after Bette, Denee, Patti, and Christine, is a bit up in the air. My (flawed) reasoning is that I want to give Miss Saigon some recognition since I don’t think it will be included in Revival nominations, but Christy Altomare could also easily slide in there.

Best Featured Actor in a Musical

  • Lucas Steele, Great Comet - winner
  • Andrew Rannells, Falsettos
  • Brandon Uranowitz, Falsettos
  • Michael Xavier, Sunset Boulevard
  • Gavin Creel, Hello, Dolly

This is really up-in-the-air right now. Unlike most the leading categories, there isn’t really a stand-out candidate. It’s actually the opposite; it’s hard to decide who should even be nominated. I chose the two Falsettos guys mostly because I’m biased and love Falsettos, but objectively it might end up being Brandon or Andrew rather than Brandon and Andrew. My heart wants to give Andrew the win (he should have won for Mormon, damn it!), but my head is saying Lucas Steele will take it.

Best Featured Actress in a Musical

  • Rachel Bay Jones, Dear Evan Hansen
  • Amber Gray, Great Comet
  • Stephanie J Block, Falsettos - winner
  • Jen Collela, Come From Away
  • Mary Beth Peil, Anastasia

I think SJB is Falsettos’ best shot to get a Tony and I really think she deserves it. That said, Rachel Bay Jones is also beautiful in DEH so it’s a tight race. This is quite a wide category similar to the featured actor category. Kate Baldwin could also replace either Amber Gray or Mary Beth Peil in this category. 

Six days until we find out how incredibly wrong I am!

WHERE. IS. THE. CAST. RECORDING.

Im also finding more musicals every day like fuck Im gonna die before I listen to everything i want to listen to

In the civilizations I have created there are thresholds subtle and almost invisible. They are engineered in the slight gradations of roads and the shifting hues of brick. These are architected to align with transitions, which occur within the self so a sense of unity is drawn. Often openings to great boulevards and beginnings emerge from miniscule movements in form and flow.

Starbucks - Fic Off #7

StarsAndHarts chose this prompt for me to write. Whoever came up with this idea - you are an evil genius. S&H, I completely follow the prompt. Caps messages will only be taken into account if they are nice and fine. Threats will be ignored. 2.117 words.

Huge thank you to everyone who’s been reading the Fic Off and has been sending messages to either of us, liking things, reblogging stories, commenting on fics; you are all absolutely lovely. Round of applause.

Starbucks

There are a lot of things that Mamrie Hart excels at, Grace considers as they drive down a Californian boulevard. Mamrie’s great at making drinks that get her drunk; Mamrie’s great at making concoctions that somehow nurse Grace’s hangover after. Mamrie’s got a sixth sense for finding places that serve the best vegan food. Mamrie is good at getting ready in the morning (and by good, Grace means fast, giving her more time to hog the bathroom), and remembering every single line of Grace’s favourite movies. She’s also quite amazing at freaking Hannah out, which is perhaps the one thing that Grace loves most about the redhead. Bar the sex they have, because that – well.

What Mamrie Hart is not good at, is driving.

“Seriously, dude, get out of my fucking way!” She shouts as she slams her hand down onto the steering wheel, overtaking the Toyota that Grace thinks did not drive that slow, “Jesus Christ.”

“There’s no rush, you know.” Grace tries, “It’s just hanging out with Hannah.”

“It’s never just hanging out with Hannah.” Mamrie responds, sarcasm lacing her sentence, “You know what that girl is like, Grace. The second you are more than five minutes late, you are pretty much getting bombarded with texts until you get there.”
