Musicals Thread (Tony Nominations)

Welcome! The purpose of this thread is to talk about all things related to the wonderful world of musical theatre. Each week (or so) I will post a thread with a topic/question for everyone to respond to. This is also a great place to mention any new musicals you’ve discovered and/or general recommendations for other musical fans. Heard/seen any good shows lately? Have any theatre news to share? Tell us about it!

This morning the nominations for the 2018 Tony Awards were announced, so I’m posting this a little earlier than usual to give everyone a place to discuss. It looks like Mean Girls and SpongeBob SquarePants (for some reason I thought this came out years ago, weird) are leading the pack. So, what do you all think about the nominations this year? Are there any shows/performers/etc. that you’ll be rooting for? Of course, feel free to discuss musicals or plays!

Quick Note: I will be out of the country for a few weeks in June. This means I’ll be missing the Tony Awards! 🙁 I’m very sad because, as I’m sure you all know, Josh Groban is co-hosting. I’ll watch it when I return because I’m just that obsessed, but the point is that I won’t be here to post a thread or anything. I’m wondering if anyone wants to volunteer to take over posting duties for, at the very least, June 12th to have a post-show discussion? Let me know if you’re interested. I’d also be more than happy to let anyone volunteer to post on June 5th and June 19th as well. Just let me know!
