I'd be biased about a show that got good reviews too. In an effort to devalue an awards ceremony that has already debased itself by French-kissing the ass of Hollywood, the theatre producers who make up the Tony Awards Committee have decided to disappear the so-called first night critics from the Tony voting pool, citing the fact that they are critically biased towards plays and musicals that might actually be good, instead of being financially biased toward plays and musicals that tourists are willing to shell out $200 a seat on. Like, for instance, theatre producers. The funniest "Duh" line in this article is the last one:
"I just don’t understand why they have changed the rules. It makes the Tony more like a marketing tool and less like an award for excellence.”
What makes this quote even more hilarious? It's from a press agent, a species of humanity which knows bullshit when it comes out of its mouth; so I'm guessing whoever got the quote from him forgot to include the sarcastic emoticon. Because the Tonys have always been about marketing, except for those odd awards that were actually given out based on quality. Like two people getting married after they've lived together for ten years, this just makes it official. So why am I not surprised? And wait -- what movie is that from again? Oh, yeah; right:
In a related story, the Broadway League has mandated that all current first-night critics will not be allowed to review a play or musical unless they agree to submit their reviews to the show's producers for approval.
Nobody can read what I write but me. Sarah Palin doesn't listen to anybody? And then blames everybody within earshot for misunderstanding what she says or putting words in her mouth? Why am I not surprised? And wait -- what movie is that from again? Oh, yeah; right:
In a related story, Palin has been hired as a commentator by Fox News. The network announced that, in accordance with current hiring policy, the fact that Pailin is a brunette and not a blonde makes her ineligible to report on the political news, and perfect to report financial news.
