They say April showers bring May flowers. But on Broadway, April yields a bumper crop of opening nights. We’ll hear about a mad scramble to meet the April 26th eligibility deadline for the Tonys with Patrick Healy, theater reporter for the New York Times.
In this week's Arts File, Jeff Spurgeon speaks with New York Times theater reporter Patrick Healy about a spat between the stagehands' union and the producers of the Tony Awards.
On Wednesday, the producers of the Broadway musical "Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark" announced that Tony-award-winning director Julie Taymor would have a diminished role.
The new musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” has been nagged by delays, technical problems and cast injuries, but Spidey fans got a chance last night to see the $65 million production in its first preview performance last night. New York Times theatre reporter Patrick Healy joins us to talk about this work in progress.
Despite the drizzle, last night's 2010 Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall felt like a Hollywood event. Scarlett Johannson, Laura Linney, Jude Law, and the band Green Day walked down the red carpet. The night's biggest awards went to "Memphis," which won in the Musical category, and "Red," which took home the Tony for Musical Revival. Patrick Healy of The New York Times was there and joins The Takeaway to talk about the winners, losers, and surprises from the night.
