If you ask me, On The Town, which is currently slightly trailing both other contenders in my Tony polling, deserves the win. I, like most, was worried when the show was announced for that barn of a theater, but director John Rando proved the doubters wrong.

Alice Carey

The thing Broadway producers don't seem to fathom (as reported in Patrick Healy's article in The New York Times January 7th) is that musicals by their very nature are not always feel-good events. And so The Last Ship will inevitably sink on Jan. 24 after a four-month run.

Bruce, for us, for the greatest fans in rock and roll, do your hair up pretty, and meet us tonight, and night after night, with the band that wasn't just born to run; but was built to last.

Cheering for The Last Ship Setting Ashore

Every year I hear about the death of the new musical. Wholly original shows -- or, hell, just shows with new scores (it's hard to be truly "original" these days) -- get bad reviews and people act like there will never be a new musical again. It's not altogether consistent or logical when this hand-wringing occurs.

I love the fall theater season. First, fall is my favorite time of the year in the city. Second, the fall theater season is chock full of new offerings, but the pressure to see them right away is less than it is with spring offerings, as the Tony Awards isn't as imminent.
