Give me a minute here while I clear my head after attending a performance of If/Then, the new musical starring Idina Menzel. Never mind. I'll just have to confess I can't keep straight what goes on in the Brian Yorkey-Tom Kitt follow-up to their Pulitzer Prize/Tony-winning Next to Normal.
It's very nice that Oscars made a special tribute to movie musicals. The only problem is that not a single one of the musicals honored (Chicago, Dreamgirls, Les Miz) was ever eligible for Oscar's own category of "Best Original Musical."
