Almost a week has passed since the Tony nominations, and we all survived - ok, most of us (sorry Enron people). I suspect that soon, there will be a few more open theatres, though. But that's progress! And there are a lot of new shows waiting in the wings...
Don't forget to vote in this week's Tony poll! Every week this month there will be a different one, and all the results will be revealed at the beginning of June. This week's poll ends at noon, one week from today.

BROADWAY BY THE NUMBERS
42: Days until Broadway Bares 20!
35: Days until the Tony Awards! (36 days until all the bitching about who lost starts...)
2: The number of significant changes to previously announced casting: Kelsey Grammer isn't playing Albin for 6 months after 6 months as Georges (disappointing); instead of the the cast of Race staying through August 23, everyone but Richard Thomas is leaving in June. (Race is still running? Who does their publicity?) Anticipation of Tony nods that didn't happen?
1: The number of show casualties since the Tony nominations came out - bye bye Enron.
