On Sunday, theater lovers across the nation tuned in to CBS to look at Broadway’s largest annual occasion, the 73rd annual Tony Awards.
Within the realm of musicals, it was an evening rewarding creators who broke boundaries and introduced experimental visions to uptown theaters, with new musical Hadestown (and its composer, singer-songwriter Anais Mitchell) successful large, in addition to the creative revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! (and its scene-stealing star Ali Stroker, who grew to become the primary actress in a wheelchair to win a Tony).
However what’s it like to truly watch the awards dwell — and what occurs after all of the trophies are handed out? On this week’s Billboard on Broadway podcast episode, host Rebecca Milzoff is joined by visitor Mo Brady, host of The Ensemblist, to dish on her expertise at Radio Metropolis Music Corridor (and on the large gala afterwards). Of their vigorous dialog, Milzoff and Brady focus on James Corden’s internet hosting, the excessive and low factors of the present, and reveal a few of the shocking truths behind how the present works.
