PONIEWOZIK I wonder if theater is inherently more “noble” than television or any other art form. But another argument, another day. Specifically, if the theater wants to celebrate their hard work and creative spirit, you can hire a nice venue for it and do it privately. If you expect a televised hearing, your obligations are different: no one is entitled to the attention of millions of people. But I agree that (to my surprise) the first part, Industry Awards, actually did a better job of conveying the excitement and electricity of being in a theater!

GREEN The “gig” half, not a bad idea in theory, was actually so poorly routed and timed that it wiped out all the half-price winnings. The last 30 minutes, which felt like a whole extra day, was a train wreck of bad calls: ballads, duets, redundant improvisation of “Freestyle Love Supreme” – when what you really wanted in this place was the Red Mill ! kickline and confetti cannons.

VINCENTELLI I don’t think I ever need “Moulin Rouge!” anything. That said, this number has worked on TV and may well have done its job, which is to sell tickets.

GREEN I’m not a big fan of “Moulin Rouge! myself, but I thought it looked fantastic on screen, using the cool midrange to tone down its manic red heat. Even if he hadn’t won 10 awards, the most of all shows, he would have done himself a lot of good with that performance.

PONIEWOZIK The flow of the CBS part was just weird. The “concert” was not an awards show, but there were three major awards, and the last one came half an hour before the end, sabotaging the momentum. I also wonder if the song choices – between general production nostalgia and Broadway’s addiction to jukebox musicals – have done much to convince an audience to discover a new theater. (Disclosure: I already have tickets to “Caroline, or Change.”) You tell me to feel excited (and safe) to go back to the theater in 2021 and give me a selection of songs I could have heard one night of “American Idol” in 2005.

VINCENTELLI And like on “American Idol,” there was no mention of plays, which the Tonys still don’t know what to do with. Unless I blinked and missed it, there has been no attempt to describe them, let alone showcase any excerpts.
