Loves Musik, Seeking Journey Boys

So the Drama Desk nominations have come out and while LoveMusik got the most nods which Modfab did not seem to like), Spring Awakening did quite well, including TWO nominations in the Best Actor in a Musical category with both Jonathan Groff (right) and Jon Galagher Jr. (left) getting nods. This makes things interesting since I've said that JGJr deserves a spot in the main actor category just as much as Groff does, but I believe the Tony Awards only allow one actor per show to be nominated in the main acting category and I would assume Jon Galagher Jr. will get bumped to Featured Actor.

Still, seems like everyone I expected got a nomination, though they usually list 6 per category while the Tony's usually only have 4 so still doesn't help us figure it out.

BTW, Here's a hilarious account of LoveMusik abridged (check the Spring Awakening and A Chorus Line too all by the same guy, both pretty hilarious if you know the shows).

And while it may not be as bad as Spiderman The Musical, looks like Catch Me If You Can: The Musical is on its way here. And I kinda want to see Young Frankenstein now, again, if only for the cast which includes Sutton Foster and Megan Mullaly.

The 21st Annual Easter Bonnet Competition with Broadway stars performing for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids looked like so much fun! Man, Hunter Bell ([title of show]) seems to be in a good position! Journey Boys (with the cast of Journey's End) looked hilarious. Or something like that... I'll stop drooling now. I would have loved to see the cast of Company doing A Chorus Line if John Doyle had directed it!

So my sister is seeing Legally Blonde The Musical tonight so I'll see what she had to say about it.

Interesting note here, Steve Sater and Duncan Sheik won the Dramatist Guild Award for Spring Awakening, beating out Pulitzer Prize winner Rabbit Hole. Woot Woot! Here's one for teenage promiscuity beating out parental mourning the death of a child (oh wait. Spring Awakening had that too!).
