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.

The best musicals are priceless. No musical, however, is worth $299 -- the going rate for a premium seat at too many Broadway musical box offices today.
