STAR STUDDED CEREMONY HELD MAY 16TH|

New York, NY (May 16, 2014) – The Drama League (Executive Director, Gabriel Shanks) announced today the winners for the 80th Annual Drama League Awards: Distinguished Production of a Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide To Love and Murder; Distinguished Play, All The Way; Distinguished Revival of a Musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch; Distinguished Revival of a Play, The Glass Menagerie; and Distinguished Performance, Neil Patrick Harris at a star-studded luncheon ceremony hosted by Jesse Tyler Ferguson at the Marriott Marquis Times Square (1535 Broadway).
Bullets Over Broadway has everything, well almost everything, going for it. It has a score of timeless, and I mean timeless, songs. The opening number, "Tiger Rag" dates to 1917. Chances are, you will have heard most of the songs (depending on how old you are.) You will recognize "Ain't Nobody's Business," "Up a Lazy River," and "I've Found a New Baby," to name just a few. Many of them have had some creative license taken with the lyrics to make them fit into the script by Woody Allen.

AT THE GOLDEN THEATRE
“Violence and elegance; cool rage, hot wit; laughter and terror having at each other. These are the building blocks of art in America. A Delicate Balance is work by a master builder. As I watched the play, I felt the thrill of first seeing Mr. Albee’s work, about what privilege and power combined with grief and rage can do to people. Mr. Albee’s plays made us question the state of our souls. They still do. Mr. Albee’s works were built to last.”
– The New York Times

If you watch most theatre critics sitting in an audience, it would seem we are taking our job very seriously. We have good poker faces. If you watch, you won't see us applaud much, and if we do, it will be a polite, gentle applause; and we certainly don't stand up at the end (except to see around other patrons). That wasn't the case with this critic and the latest Broadway revival of Les Misérables.
