HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

1st Annual Awards That Tony Forgot: The Final Ballot!

Well, here we are at last!  After hundreds of nominations and dozens of write-ins and last minute suggestions, here is the final ballot for The 1st Annual Awards That Tony Forgot Awards (we still need a better name... suggestions, PLEASE!).  You will probably notice that there are a few more categoiries now than on the nominations ballot.  That's because you spoke and I listened - several of you said I should split some of the awards into two.  So I did!  Thank you, as always, for your input!
