More importantly brought out there -- post.
Our friend a mockery of democracy or good morning John good morning thanks for insulting -- musical tastes you know you may miss the irony -- -- picked a -- song because I first came on here to -- Spider-Man slightly there was little touch of iron that I like a bottle -- when I hate Spider-Man.
Had a bunch of Spiderman -- -- -- -- slated yet again at a bunch of people from all of the shows on the -- last night because it appeared to me that they couldn't get many big stars to.
And present on the Tony -- so they had to rely on a lot of cast members from currently running Broadway shows.
-- -- -- -- from home actually.
I usually go but.
I want to be a bright fresh for you this morning so I stayed home knocked off my column in the gotten the better early but I listen to you this morning I am shocked that you actually watch the Tony Awards have you watch the Tony's before in your life.
Probably a little bit of -- title snatches overlooked.
Brought to basketball order and got -- And I didn't so far ahead of it you know.
Called it a spur dribble -- I thought -- -- has gone up so Tony's the one -- turned it on.
Do you have people promote our during.
-- -- on.
Delta each other.
We think about the Tonys and I was thinking in this watch -- last night.
Everything seems so retro and so.
Old fashioned -- -- -- like to music of Motown but I mean that's you know that's Warner -- kind of show.
That Motown music is forty years old Elvis is what.
As for current and -- Warner -- -- now out of her what I want go to those cutting edge shows like kinky boots.
But it reminds -- won't -- book of Mormon technical.
-- running about going oh yeah absolutely it's still a big big hit and I agree -- you.
He also said that -- looks like a lot of those guys on the Tony Awards and he looks like he could be elder elder McShane could have welcomed.
And that it looks like an average -- to work Spider-Man.
-- -- -- -- -- It's like just like the -- Simon yeah -- -- dot I saw you on your show last week and I mean -- put storage for your pants.
That's pretty Tony award -- such pop up.
The very hard falls about a -- and -- -- -- boards and had to order a hotel portrait of so oh well -- you -- -- abortion.
That's Willie Nelson famously signed.
Cowboys or should certainly different from what are fond of each other did you have a lot of kinky cowboy -- to another torrential reversal became a -- Tom Hanks or wildlife government out of -- -- -- doesn't like him.
-- -- -- any reason.
I thought it was gonna win don't don't -- for the Atlanta -- derailed.
Yeah that was the a big surprise of the night he was beaten up for the Tony by a very fine actor named -- -- who played Georgia -- at all these great player who's averaging Tracy lets his -- but nobody knows who we is.
He's an actor from Chicago a fine actor.
He gave a terrific performance as George in who's afraid of Virginia wolf but nobody nobody thought he was going to beat.
Tom Hanks who I was making his Broadway debut as -- Mac -- Larry in lucky guy and you know I love to watch.
Not the the the winners I love to watch the losers in CD expression on their faces when their name.
Isn't an ounce and you could see there was -- little gasp from Hanks.
But he recovered quickly and and applauded.
About travelers -- -- him.
-- -- have yet she was even nominated for Tony award this year and is sixteen to two biggest stars in New York right now.
Bette Midler and Tom Hanks were both snubbed by the Tony Awards and you'd think somebody involved in this awards show would want to encourage big names like that come to Broadway.
And I would imagine that a lot of the Hollywood agents who are trying to put there were famous clients in Broadway shows next season.
Might be a little reluctant now because you become the new York and the Tony Awards basically give -- the back their hand.
Why did it.
Enough about it on it but why did.
Until -- was favorite of -- -- -- doles out tomorrow defending it was Matilda which is -- show that I saw in London last year and I think it's one of the best musicals I've ever seen -- based on the great rolled doll like children's story.
I got rave reviews in London and there -- a lot of producers vying for to bring it to New York.
And it for a long time it looked like it was going to sweep the Tony Awards but out of nowhere came Cyndi Lauper and Harvey fire scene with kinky -- and I can tell you a year ago.
None of us -- who cover broadly we're talking about kinky boots even being in the mix this season.
But let's and I mean that's kind of fun -- -- Broadway you never know the unexpected show -- that comes out of nowhere can topple the favorite.
You know it's amazing and lives -- were -- in his conversation.
And no one suspects are -- what imagined.
That I just care -- -- -- sort of sort of frightening yeah you don't notice subtle.
You took a good job of faking but I've -- -- -- call once you're talking about.
Years ago you did a variety show on television you actually sang on the show didn't do.
I would love to get my hands on -- tape that welcomed unfortunately I don't understand destroyed but makes -- very.
I don't know lose some new -- brought the -- charming and mineral.
The acceptance tradition of -- not to like about her.
-- -- the big -- a -- -- and I thought.
That was a heartfelt speech and I can tell you have spent some time with her since she's been working on Broadway and she put everything she has ended the show one -- -- went to see it early on in previews at the -- Al Hirschfeld theatre.
With party fire Steen who wrote the book and unity -- -- she was down in the basement of the theater.
While the show is going on.
Out -- writing some songs and was upset because a xylophone had not been brought into the orchestra pit at this point.
Says she was completely committed to today's show and -- I know that she and -- -- -- planning to do a number of other Broadway shows a lot of these great pop icons of the past.
Whose careers let's face and a got a little cold.
Are coming -- to Broadway now two two to write original scores.
It's great fun it's great funny it out its its its campy and and and light -- But you I think you have well and argued at a good time -- a but I think war -- Did you see -- Warner no.
-- -- -- -- -- It's and it didn't grab some has to grab me has been your reason I wanna -- -- show when -- get like a voice that I like -- off Broadway shows.
More than the Broadway shows yeah there's a very good off Broadway Show now or you might want to check out to your New York called Cornelius by the great old writer JB Priestley and it just came from London.
That is that that's the common sewers kind of show and I know that you are -- Warner a sold bull.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Smoker but you don't want -- Well it's two people -- long wanted a workplace and shows Al businesses today.
They just -- the guy Al verbally.
And he did this to jobs -- -- -- -- doesn't like Amazon and program yeah.
I thought I freshmen has changed but god Obama to -- little light on the -- my truck.
-- -- -- If you look at at who says she did today acquittal.
I'm sure you have television you know sure you -- but rather than those I've been canceled what happened -- So it has been canceled thank or rubbing salt into the wound on little or just a really appreciate that kind of at all -- -- -- wonder what happens -- Off off like one of the girls who was in a -- guilty was on the Tonys last night sort of screeching out a song.
-- reach a lot of songs out of the Tony's I think digit did you notice that.
Now on our -- Program it's like hands in the air all the time and screeching shouldn't shouldn't -- guts out.
-- -- Patrick harris' who seems very charming and affable fellow he's like -- not but it's the fourth time hosting their I think it's time to shaken up about the problems of.
-- Mike Tyson's actually that the Tony Awards perform last night onstage with a Neil Patrick.
Paris yeah Tyson was it was a hiding with a bunch of course poisoned popped out and -- attempted to dance a little bit after this episode.
You know the bodies are in trouble and the biggest victory as Tyson.
All -- -- -- and -- period of ethnic -- public.
My -- it's almost as well rob does.
An Israeli sort of -- if a parent it's -- -- apart -- -- and to an hour I'll storm on -- die in my life fountain in my -- about a book this summer I got a crack at a book for Simon and Schuster about.
Broadway in New York City back in the seventies when not I know I don't briefings that was -- -- -- -- New York City when you could.
Unbeatable -- the drug dealers in the prostitutes but Broadway was in a lot of trouble back then good times and -- and it's a book about how.
But you guys came together and save data theater business and so doing helped lift the fortunes of New York -- You go back far enough Don you know one of the watershed moments in the history not only Broadway -- -- the city was a chorus line that came.
Out of -- 1975.
And became the linchpin of the hole I love New York campaign that helped.
New York City so Broadway really really was there for York in its hour of need and that's the young idea trying to convey in the book.
She go on forever under policy.
On them on national program.
For people -- books.
And new album for policies and established.
Sort of by accident by Paul -- And to read his book no but on the big -- a fan.
And I went right -- relentless.
Many of us saw -- regrets.
At the same line a nice enough got -- -- Got to -- liberal gable and Steve.
-- -- Both -- -- occurred for Summers.
Yeah I heard coach talking about that any apparently beat fleeced by -- something like that -- -- -- -- and invest in something and something like that.
I guess I'm not sure what it is clarified that highly unlikely -- Give it to Paula after what do Sandra -- but that's but it will have to take -- -- -- -- -- That -- ministers Sharapova but apparently he talks about a lot of -- And and has sport to have to have may be -- better left unsaid.
-- well I am interested in those songwriters of that area you know remember the Brill Building.
Those guys came out of of that Burt Bacharach Hal dated.
Cynthia -- and Barry -- all those great songwriter Neil Sadako -- I had a good fortune to meet just held -- tomorrow O'Neal got all those guys and you know they they would be stuck in these little cubby holes with an upright piano and they would be expected to.
Bang out hit tunes over and over and over again and N anchor was part of that world.
And those songs are actually terrific and I'm surprise that no one has done a Broadway musical built around.
All of that energy and excitement of the Brill Building back in those days.
Alan freed Marty Richards -- missed.
Went somewhere wind up on the part of the song credits on revenue -- -- I mean those guys credit they -- -- does that put a name on the on the on the on the sheet music so -- you collect a royalty on someone else's work.
I remember one timer military -- and his mother.
Wrote it's bush splash for -- there and so obviously that's atrocities on the -- there is.
Say a musical coming up in the fall that MIT Christine it's.
Based on a Carole king's life when she was at the Brill Building and -- uses her early music and it's about her marriage to Gary Geffen.
-- off the rails and almost done.
Sent her into a deep deep depression but she came out of it and wrote tapestry which is one of the great really one of the great pop albums of all time.
Limited -- -- on last final Iraq -- world title -- what the rest goals were they have a little low who run on Broadway here and again.
That it's the baby boomers are really buying tickets to Broadway now which is why you see a lot of these.
Shows like Motown in the -- schools he had Barry Manilow on Broadway this past year and down on Brian Wilson is coming to -- if you can believe that.
It in in the fall I think so -- -- it's it's tapping into the baby boomers who love spend spend the money in and government Broadway shows.
Rascals perform once I'm on the television -- around.
That's one idea turned to the best and I I thought just.
I have not managed well -- just got a -- that's what entered -- normal.
