It's the middle of the Awards season, so I thought I would start a generic topic on awards. The Producers and Proof won the Drama Desk awards for best musical and best play.

It's impossible to get into "The Producers". There hasn't been an absolutely must see show of this magnitude in this town since "Phatom of the Opera" 15 years ago.

It's going to be the same old lame show with lame ratings. You wonder how long CBS will stick with it. If it were during sweeps there is no way a major network would carry it. I think they would be better off doing some sort of pay-per-view model where the people who really want to see it will pay $2.95 or something. That might bring in more cash for the show.

But I will be taping it so that I may skim through and see the highlights (if there are any)... But first I have to watch my beloved Philadelphia 76ers kick some Buck ass!

So The Producers won like everything. It won more awards than any other show in Broadway history.

I'm not so sure this is a good development for Broadway. If The Producers and Proof won basically all the awards, the other shows aren't going to have any critical help or awards to keep audiences interested. I would imagine there will be plenty of closing notices going up over the next week.

I thought it was a very entertaining show though low on drama. There really wasn't any doubt that The Producers would practically sweep. I think the only losses they had were when there were more than one nominated in a category (i.e. Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick). I think they got the maximum they possibly could have gotten.

Low ratings. Better than last year. But still... low, low, low...

Even though "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" won the Best Play Revival Tony award, it is closing after 99 performances.

I have no clue what would be up for the Tonys this year. I know last year it was a foregone conclusion that "The Producers" would win everything - but this year... what's the hot show?

The Award season is starting. Thoroughly Modern Millie got the most nominations for the Drama Desk awards followed by the Sweet Smell of Success and Into the Woods.

The Broadway version of the 1967 musical Thoroughly Modern Millie received 11 Tony Award nominations Monday, more than any other production. Besides being nominated for Best Musical, the show also earned Sutton Foster a nomination for best actress in the role originally created by Julie Andrews in the film. Gavin Creel received a nomination for best actor in the role originated by James Fox. When it was originally exhibited, the film, directed by George Roy Hill, included an intermission -- just like a Broadway show.
