It’s the big night tonight. The most important evening for most theatre people (on this side of the pond at least). Below are my predictions of who will win and who should win.
I’ve had a couple of shows that I’ve absolutely loved that have crashed and burned so quickly on Broadway that it would make your head spin. High Fidelity was one of them. And when a concert of the aforementioned beloved musical is taking place, you buy tickets. (Even if it’s happening at the excessively overpriced 54 Below, you still go.)
Kristen and I both have an unrelenting love for HiFi so we were beaming and our work days could not go by quickly enough. We grabbed a leisurely dinner at Glass House Tavern and then went over to 54 Below to claim our seats at the bar. It was like a reunion of friends, old and new. I saw so many people that I hadn’t seen in - literally - years. I saw assorted cast members of Bring It On (and one from American Idiot - Van Hughes) at the bar and then realized that they’d be singing back up for the ensemble numbers.
Will Chase took the stage and it started.
