Stage Door: A startling new take on "Oklahoma!"

by Deborah Lipp

Gabrielle Hamilton, nominated for a Chita Rivera award, for a very different take on the dream ballet in "Oklahoma!"

Wow, that was a lot.

Leaving the new Broadway revival of Oklahoma!, a reconceptualization of the show that pulls no punches, I felt a little staggered, like it was too soon to have a celebratory dinner afterwards. (Context: I’m assuming you know the basics of this classic of musical theater, and I won’t consider any of its points “spoilers”. I will hold back potential spoilers, though, for this version.)

Daniel Fish’s unique production changes not one word, either spoken or sung, but it all feels very new...

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Returns for Season 2! 

By Spencer Coile

Tony Awards 2018 in Review

Thirteen random thoughts on last night's Tony Awards.


• Glenda Jackson won the Emmy and two Oscars in the 1970s but after a three decade break from acting, she returns triumphant with a Tony win, giving her the Triple Crown!

• Remember when Melissa McCarthy surprised everybody by winning the Emmy for Mike & Molly that one year? After the shock wore off everyone collectively decided that the Television Academy gave her that prize because of Bridesmaids that same season. I kinda think this is what happened with Laurie Metcalf winning a second consecutive Tony -- this time for Three Tall Women in a category people expected to go elsewhere. Not that Three Tall Women isn't brilliantly acted, but we're guessing her miracle performance in Lady Bird helped put her over the finish line. We're choosing to interpret it as Tony voters slapping Oscar's hand. Oscar deserved a slap for that one...

would you rather...?

And now for a silly celeb-filled distraction from the awful real world (I threw my back out yesterday somehow and can't be with the marches against hate and on Trump Tower which is my real answer to what I'd rather be doing. But let's play anyway.

Would you rather...

• shower with Salma Hayek?
• night shoot with Rachel Bloom and Vincent Rodriguez?
• cockpit train with Mahershala?
• call Reese on her shell phone?
• share a moment with Luke Evans and his friend Lakshmi?
• play with Josh Brolin's snake?
• have some ice cream with Tony Shalhoub?

Pictures to help you decide after the jump.
