Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

TROUPER TUESDAY: WINNER! #MissingTonyAward for Best Ensemble in a Musical

The very first winner of the #MissingTonyAward for Best Ensemble of a Musical is the Ensemble of An American in Paris!

In the course of just one performance this impressive group sings, acts and dances several big production numbers.  You know, the stuff all Broadway chorus boys and girls do eight times a week.  But this amazing ensemble also does three extended ballets - and they are strenuous.  Breathtaking and inspiring as these dances (exquisitely choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon) are, the 27 people doing them are just as breathtaking and inspiring.

Congratulations to: Caitlin Abraham, Will Burton, Atilla Joey Csiki, Michael Cusumano, Taeler Cyrus, Ashley Dupre, Rebecca Eichenberger, Sara Esty, Laura Feig, Jennie Ford, Kurt Froman, Heather Lang, Dustin Layton, Nathan Madddem, Gia Mongell, Candy Olsen, Rebecca Riker, Adam Rogers, Sam Rogers, Shannon Rugani, Garen Scribner, Sam Strasfeld, Sarrah Strimel, Charlie Sutton, Allison Walsh, Scott Willis and Victor J. Wisehart.

Here they are in action:

Thanks for voting in the first #MissingTonyAward celebration!  After hundereds of nomination votes were cast, your nominees for Best Ensemble in a Musical were: An American in Paris, Finding Neverland, Fun Home, On The Town and Something Rotten!  Congratulations to all.
