Just Four; Only Four; That's All!
Only four musicals were nominated for Best Musical Tony Awards this season even though more than a dozen new musicals were in contention. You would have thought the Tony nominators wouldm have at least come up with five musicals, the normal number considered. What happened to A Bronx Tale or War Paint or Anastasia or Amelie or In Transit?
Anyway, above you'll find clips from each of the four nominees: Dear Evan Hansen, The Great Comet, Come From Away and Groundhog Day. Among these four only Groundhog Day comes even close to being a classic Broadway musical. The rest are all somewhat out-of-genre.
