- We asked what you would suggest to the Tony Producers to make it a more exciting evening. Here are some quotes that represent the most common themes I heard:
- “Include actual scenes from the Best Play and Best Play revival nominees”
- “Put the tech awards & special awards back on prime-time broadcast!” (We heard this last year as well, which is expected from a theater crowd like you – but since you love the Production Numbers so much, maybe the question I should have asked was, “Would you sacrifice two production numbers from Musicals to hear the tech awards?”
- “Bring NPH back again next year!” (Shocking.)
So, overall, a whopping improvement from last year says you (and you liked last year’s as well – here’s a link to those results). Now, let’s see if we can build on that foundation and keep making the show better and better.
