Tony nominations are out Tuesday, so let’s read the tea leaves.

Producers are gnawing their nails over Best Musical. So many shows, only four (maybe five) slots.

Come From Away” and “Dear Evan Hansen” are in. After that, predict at your peril. I think “Groundhog Day” makes the cut, and probably “War Paint,” although “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” is certainly in the mix.

It may be true that New York City’s gay bars are in sad decline. But Broadway’s Shubert Theatre on West 44th Street is one venue where, if you are prepared to part with a few hundred dollars, you can be around as many gay men (and many happy heterosexuals of course) as you could possibly wish.

We saw many a stars perform as Hedwig in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” It’s very common to replace the lead to either give them a break so they can return to reality or the switch is done to generate more buzz around the musical and its new star. Bette Midler has only just opened on Broadway in ‘Hello, Dolly’ and producers are already planning on replacing her.

“Bette has signed on for one year. The entire run is almost sold out and now producers are looking for life after she leaves,” sources tell Straight Shuter. “The person that they all agree would be perfect to follow Bette is Dolly Parton. The show would literally be, “Hello, DOLLY!” Read More
