Podcast Studio Atypical Artists Teams With Musical Theatre Writers On ‘Serial’-Meets-‘Glee’-Style Audio Series
Exclusive: As the true-crime podcast market continues to heat up, could a musical interlude be the next hot area? That’s the hope of musical theatre writers Brett Ryback, Jeff Luppino-Esposito and Matt Sav, who have teamed with podcast studio Atypical Artists on a Serial-meets-Broadway-style scripted series.

Ryback, who wrote the music and lyrics to stage show Passing Through and Nickelodeon writers Luppino-Esposito and Sav have created In Strange Woods with the help of Atypical Artists, which is run by Lauren Shippen, the creator of audio drama The Bright Sessions.

In Strange Woods tells the coming-of-age story of Peregrine Wells, an 18-year-old girl in Minnesota’s north woods, reeling from the death of her older brother. Ryback, who also acts as narrator, spins a fictional mystery that weaves together investigation and taped interview with a folk-pop score.

Tony Awards Review: No Surprises As James Corden, ‘Hadestown’ & ‘Ferryman’ Show How To Get A Job Done

Tony Awards Review: No Surprises As James Corden, ‘Hadestown’ & ‘Ferryman’ Show How To Get A Job Done
There were no big surprises or major upsets tonight at the 73rd annual Tony Awards, as Hadestown, The Ferryman, Bryan Cranston and Elaine May took the trophies they were meant to take, overt politicizing was kept to a few well-placed swipes, and James Corden oversaw it all like the Broadway-besotted pro we know him to be.

The show made its idealogical positions clear mostly by way of the inclusivity shown onstage — one of the funniest moments of the night came when Bryan Cranston accepted his award for best actor in a play with an exuberant “Finally, a straight old white man gets a break!” The Network actor’s swipe at “demagoguery” was as close to the Oval Office as Radio City got tonight.

All in all, CBS’ Tony broadcast showed how an awards show should be done: No flab beyond what a three-hour broadcast necessitates, smart selections from the nominated musicals,

2019 Tony Awards slugfest: Last minute panic over final musical predictions [Watch]

With only a few days remaining to fret over Tony predictions, Gold Derby contributors Sam Eckmann and David Buchanan joined up to discuss the musical categories, debating some of the biggest nail-biters of the awards ceremony slated for this Sunday on CBS. Watch the full video slugfest above.

In the race for Best Musical, Sam and I both think “Hadestown” will prevail, but we consider the outside possibility of an upset by “The Prom” in part because it just won the top honor at the Drama Desk Awards (“Hadestown” was not eligible in that category because it already contended for its Off-Broadway production at the 2017 ceremony). For Best Revival, we both have “Oklahoma!” besting “Kiss Me, Kate” even though this reimagined mounting of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic has been divisive. While I suggest that “enough people like or admire it and will still vote for it,” Sam argues, “the

Amber Gray Of ‘Hadestown’: A Star’s Meteoric Rise Was Years In The Making – Tony Watch Q&A

Amber Gray Of ‘Hadestown’: A Star’s Meteoric Rise Was Years In The Making – Tony Watch Q&A
Amber Gray had been simmering Off and Off Off Broadway for about a decade when, in 2016, she appeared to arrive fully-formed – to Broadway audiences, anyway – as some sort of next-generation diva, a new force in the world of musical theater, landing a knock-out performance as Countess Hélène Bezukhova in the Broadway production of Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812. “Charming,” her spotlight number from the musical, seemed (still does) destined to secure an early place in a lasting personal repertoire, sure to be shout-requested in untold numbers of concerts to come.

So in a way, Great Comet was both a culmination and a first act. Now Gray has been Tony-nominated (Best Featured Actress/musical) for her current performance as Persephone in Anaïs Mitchell’s Hadestown. A hit critically and with sell-out crowds, Hadestown is Mitchell’s uncannily prescient re-do of the Orpheus myth,

Tony Awards 2019: Who Will Win, Who Should Win

The numbers are in: This Broadway season broke attendance and box-office records (nearly $2 billion), which should really juice up the Tony Awards this year. Why? I’d call it Hollywood heat. Stars of movies, TV and YouTube converged on Broadway this year like never before. Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Walter White (Bryan Cranston) are duking it out with Harry Dunne, the diarrhea king from Dumb and Dumber (Jeff Daniels), for the drama prize as Best Actor. It took three actresses to play one Cher in The Cher Show. And

Dream Dances, Nightmare Snubs And Unforgettable Highlights Of The Broadway Season – Tony Watch

Twenty-four hours haven’t been nearly enough to settle, in my mind anyway, yesterday’s Tony Awards Sorkin Snub, but for the most part, the nominations sit well. Certainly they represent a decent scope of styles and approaches that make for a Broadway inclusive enough to find space for something as quirky (understatement of the day) as Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus and as traditional (if woke) Kiss Me, Kate.

I wrote about the snubs and surprises of the Tony Award nominations yesterday, so today I’ll walk through some random Broadway byways – congratulations, disappointments and shout-outs to performances and productions that didn’t make the Tony cut but merit remembering as this season heads to a close (Tony eligibility is done and dusted; the ceremony is June 9).

2019 Tony Awards nominations: ‘Hadestown’ leads with 14, ‘Ain’t Too Proud’ has 12, ‘The Ferryman’ and ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ at 9 each
Two new musicals – “Hadestown” and “Ain’t Too Proud” — lead the Tony Awards nominations with 14 and 12 bids respectively. Not surprisingly, they are the frontrunners for Best Musical. Among new plays, the British import “The Ferryman” and Aaron Sorkin‘s adaptation of Harper Lee‘s classic novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” earned nine nominations each but the latter was snubbed for the top prize. (See the full list of Tony Awards nominees.)

“Hadestown” numbers four performances among its nominations: a star-making turn by Eva Noblezada and scene-stealing work from Andre De Shields, Amber Gray and Patrick Page. Santino Fontana is the frontrunner to win Best Actor (Musical) for tackling the role made famous by Dustin Hoffman in “Tootsie.” Two featured players from that charmer — Lilli Cooper and Andy Grotelueschen — also reaped Tonys bids.

Tonys: Adam Driver, Bryan Cranston, Jeff Daniels And Other Nominees React
This year’s Tony Award nominations did not favor Network or To Kill a Mockingbird in the Best Play race, but lead actors Bryan Cranston and Jeff Daniels are both expressing their gratitude for their Best Actor in a Play nominations.

“It has been an honor to play Atticus Finch on Broadway,” Daniels said in a statement. “And now this. Thank you, American Theatre Wing.”

Cranston, nominated for his turn as Howard Beale, said, “It’s hard to stay Mad as Hell when you’re nominated for a Tony! Thank you to the members of the American Theater Wing & the Broadway League for this recognition.”

The revival of Lanford Wilson’s Burn This is up for Best Revival of a Play and star Adam Driver earned a nomination for Best Actor for his high-energy interpretation of Pale, a role originated by John Malkovich.

‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, ‘Network’ Snubbed From Tony Award Best Play Category – Complete List Of Nominees

‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, ‘Network’ Snubbed From Tony Award Best Play Category – Complete List Of Nominees
Refresh for updates The lush, very-downtown musical Hadestown topped the Tony Awards nominations list with 14, with the more traditional jukebox musical Ain’t Too Proud coming in at second with 12, a one-two punch as clear a sign as any that Tony voters are in a very expansive mood this year.

At #3, Tootsie has 11 nominations; The Ferryman 9 and Beetlejuice 8.

But the big surprise were the no-votes in the Best Play category for both To Kill A Mockingbird and Network, particularly for Aaron Sorkin’s gloriously reviewed and wildly popular adaptation of Harper Lee’s novel. That omission might be the single biggest Tony snub in years, if not decades.

Deadline will examine that omission and other surprises in a complete analysis of the Tony nominations by Deadline theater critic Greg Evans, coming shortly. Check back soon.

‘Saint Joan’ Broadway Review: Condola Rashad Stakes Claim On Shaw’s Firebrand

Nevertheless, she persists, that maid of Orleans, and by the end of the Manhattan Theatre Club’s attractive, not flawless, Broadway revival of Shaw’s Saint Joan, starring the endearing Condola Rashad, resistance is mostly futile.

Directed by Daniel Sullivan with an easy flow that appears to modernize the 1923 play and keep all that Shavian verbiage moving at a smart clip, Saint Joan would seem an ideal resurrection for an era of #MeToo and the rejection of binary gender cages, but this Joan doesn’t quite drive its sword into that ground as forcefully as you might hope.

Instead, Sullivan and Rashad hit harder on the play’s lament over society’s treatment of its Saints, a sympathy that, in theory at least, would extend to, say, a Saint John. Rashad – a Tony nominee for last year’s A Doll’s House, Part 2 and star of TV’s Billions – plays
