"One of the magical things about theater is that it gathers a crowd of people in a quiet space, and each member of the audience gets to see how people respond differently to the different things being said on stage. The person next to you will laugh at something that you’d never think of laughing at, and you’ll get a glimpse into all the different ways of viewing the world. Unfortunately, so much theater today is less nuanced. It gives you a large dose of one way of thinking, in hopes of getting as many of the same type of people into the theater as possible."

The Tony Awards are the awards for Broadway — aka musicals.
In the first two years the Tonys were presented in 1947 and 1948, the ceremony began with a 9 p.m. dinner at New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel, followed by dancing. Anyone could attend (it cost $7 for a ticket)
Most nominated production in Tony history: The Producers, which earned 15 nominations in 2011. 
In 1960, two musicals tied for Best Musical for the only time (Fiorello! and The Sound of Music)
Also in 1960, a nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical was split among the seven child actors—five girls and two boys—who played the Von Trapp children in The Sound of Music. 1960 was a weird year.
Originally, winners got a scroll, a money clip, and a cigarette lighter (for the men) or a compact (for the women).

there’s a post floating around my dash that’s like “don’t cast people who can’t sing in musicals,” which like yeah, okay, but also don’t cast people who can’t ACT in musicals because I’ll tell you what if you can barely carry a tune but know how to pour your heart and soul into a character and make them a person I would pick you ten times over sweet voice mcnoemotions okay

Super selfies

Selfies. Selfies everywhere

I defy someone to re-draw the cover of The Killing Joke as a selfie.
