Razzle Dazzle ‘Em

Tony Award nominations are in. I don’t follow the N.Y. theater world too closely, but around here we love the Tonys. We will likely watch the live broadcast on June 11th, and we will just as likely curse CBS for screwing it up again. I’m aware that they need to attract Joe and Mamie Midwestern who don’t normally get Broadway musicals, but that doesn’t mean the show has to be molded into a dozen other glitzy yet empty awards ceremonies. A few years ago, PBS produced its own broadcasts to showcase the technical awards which CBS deemed too insignificant. These programs never failed to fascinate, profiling the nominees and conveying the hard work and craftsmanship that goes into a major theater production. They were engaging and wonderful, but now they’re gone. Once again it’ll come down to this: another celebrity-studded but not terribly theatrical show will go on, and CBS will wonder why the ratings were so bad the next morning. And so it goes.

2 Thoughts on “Razzle Dazzle ‘Em

  1. Getting dropped by CBS would be the best thing that could happen to the Tonys. That way, the show could get picked up by a network that would treat it with the respect it deserves. Bravo, I’m looking at you. Sort of like when the Miss America Pageant ended up on Country Music Television. Sure, the Tony folks would complain that fewer people would watch the show if it were on cable. But not many are watching it now.

  2. I was thinking the same thing with Bravo. Them or A&E. PBS would also be good, although if it moves to another network some major changes would still have to be made.
