Hollywood on Broadway
The Tony nominations are out, and it looks like Hollywood has invaded Broadway. In the 1990's, I was in New York seeing plays. I didn't recognize names of most of the actors. There was something cool about that. With theatres struggling to stay alive, it seems casting movie or tv stars is a way of insuring an audience.
It just means that well-studied actors dedicated to their craft might lose a role to someone who was on a season of Survivor.
