Tony Awards offer some dramatic possibilities
By Christopher Wallenberg GLOBE CORRESPONDENT
JUNE 09, 2017
NEW YORK — What does Broadway look like in the year A.H. (After “Hamilton”)? Last season, Lin Manuel-Miranda’s juggernaut washed over the competition at the Tony Awards like a tidal wave. So this could have been a lackluster year by comparison, as some had predicted, but instead a pack of popular, celebrated, even game-changing contenders arrived in both the musical and play genres. With tight races in several main categories, expect some big drama on Tony night (let’s just hope the presenters open the correct envelopes). Here are our predictions — and preferences — for the winners in each of the major categories.

Why this year’s Tony Awards may be ‘a little muted’
By Michael Riedel
May 30, 2017 | 11:20pm
As the Tony Award telecast starts to come together, there’s concern that the June 11 show might be, as one Broadway insider puts it, “a little muted.”
CBS, which broadcasts the Tonys, likes big numbers from high-profile shows. And while this year’s crop of new musicals is diverse and exciting, there’s no “Hamilton”-size blockbuster. Nor are there showstopping songs along the lines of “Circle of Life” from “The Lion King” or “Defying Gravity” from “Wicked” — powerful songs that can stand on their own terms, out of the show’s context.

Freak Show, Trudie Styler’s feature directorial debut, has been acquired by IFC Films for U.S. distribution. The film, based on the James St. James novel of the same name about a cross-dressing teen, first debuted in a sold out screening at the Berlin Film Festival and stars Alex Lawther (Imitation Game), Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black), Bette Midler, and Abigail Breslin. The Works is handling foreign sales at Cannes.

On The Paparazzi: â€œThe paparazzi havenâ€™t been too much of a problem. You expect them at premieres and things. Thatâ€™s your job. Letâ€™s face it. But the other day my husband and I were having lunch at an outside cafe in New York.

But the other day my husband and I were having lunch at an outside cafe in New York. I told him â€˜That guy over there is photographing us.â€™ He said â€œOh, you think everyone is photographing you.â€™ Yeah sure. The photograph came out the next day, and I didnâ€™t look so hot.â€ (Herald-Journal â€“ Apr 8, 1997)

Of all the award categories devised by the National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences, none is a less reliable gauge of talent than the Grammy for best new artist. Faster than you can say “one-hit wonder,” a host of winners have become no-hit stumblers.
Are you out there, Bobbie Gentry, Men at Work, Debby Boone and Mark Cohn? (See Timeline on Page 3.)
But even if this year’s best new artist nominees enjoy only a brief stay in the commercial sun – which seems unlikely, particularly for rockers Alanis Morissette and Joan Osborne – the women who dominate the category still will have contributed to one of Grammy’s most compelling statements.

Bette Midler On What Sheâ€™d Really Like To Do After The Rose: â€œI really want to do a technicolor musical comedy â€“ a great big, old fashioned musical comedy. The kind they donâ€™t seem to know how to make anymore. I see them on TV and I still go to the theaters that still show them. They drive me mad â€“ theyâ€™re so full of light and color and sound and people acting happy. (Eugene Register-Guard â€“ Nov 19, 1977)
Bette Midler to return to Broadway in ‘Hello, Dolly!’

That force of nature, Bette Midler, opened last week at Radio City Music Hall to a crowd that was nearly hysterical in its adulation. From her first moments onstage, singing â€œFriendsâ€ while thousands stood and cheered, to her final, exquisite rendition of â€œThe Glory of Love,â€ Bette had the huge audience in the palm of her tiny hand.
If, at almost three hours, Betteâ€™s â€œ Experience the Divineâ€ has a few rough/slow spots, that is only to be expected. And Bette’s eclectic,Â grab-bag form at is pretty much what she’s always done on stage. You get ballads … you get hula n u m b ers… you get the incredible Delores DeLago, wheelchair-bound mermaid supreme (and wait till you see Deloresâ€™ great send-up of â€œNew York, New York! â€ â€” Sinatra and Liza may just have to drop this number from their repertoire, it should never be taken seriously a g a in )… you get the old Sophie Tucker jokes … you get a taste of â€œ Gypsy,â€ Midlerâ€™s upcoming TV special, with a knockdown version of â€œRose’s Turnâ€ … and, of course, you get Betteâ€™s sass with flash, scripted (by Bruce Vilanch), and her ad libs.

The all-star recording session for We Are the World, the biggest charity single of all time, took place 30 years ago Wednesday.
On Jan. 28, 1985, at A&M Recording Studios in Hollywood, following the American Music Awards, more than 40 artists gathered to record a song Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson had written to raise awareness of widespread, life-threatening poverty in Africa. Most of that show’s winners â€” including Cyndi Lauper, Hall & Oates, Bruce Springsteen, Huey Lewis, Willie Nelson, Tina Turner, the Pointer Sisters, Kenny Rogers and the Jacksons â€” participated.
