Broadway Newcomer ‘Boys In The Band’ Was A Revival, Tony Committee Decides

Broadway Newcomer ‘Boys In The Band’ Was A Revival, Tony Committee Decides
Joe Mantello’s recent Broadway staging of Mart Crowley’s The Boys in the Band will be eligible for a 2019 Tony Award – no surprise there – but theater trivia buffs might quibble with the category: Best Revival of a Play.

Although the gay groundbreaker has been staged many times since its Off Broadway debut in 1968, The Boys in the Band had never made its way to Broadway until Mantello’s star-packed production last April. So revival, or new play?

Revival, says the Tony Awards Administration Committee.

The decision was one of six announced today. Although the committee does not publicly explain its decisions, Boys’ 50-year production history – Broadway notwithstanding – apparently persuaded the committee toward the revival designation.

The designation was made during the first of four scheduled meetings planned by the committee for the 2018-2019 Broadway season. Other determinations made today:

2018 Broadway fall season preview of plays: Which will be remembered by the Tony Awards?

A new Broadway season is gearing up, and there are currently nine productions of plays set to open this fall. Could we be seeing any of them contend at next year’s Tony Awards?

“Bernhardt/Hamlet” (opens September 25; closes November 18)

In this world premiere play by two-time Emmy nominee Theresa Rebeck, international stage actress, Sarah Bernhardt, sets out to tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet.

‘Bernhardt/Hamlet’ Review: Broadway’s Mighty Janet McTeer Brings Legend To Life

  • Deadline
‘Bernhardt/Hamlet’ Review: Broadway’s Mighty Janet McTeer Brings Legend To Life
Whatever combination of passion, narcissism and bravery swirl to form an actor’s decision to tackle Hamlet must merit a spot in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Short of that, we’ll have to rely on the wondrous Janet McTeer’s star turn in Theresa Rebeck’s spirited, funny new play Bernhardt/Hamlet to guide us up theater’s Mount Everest.

Opening tonight at the Roundabout Theatre Company’s American Airlines Theatre, Bernhardt/Hamlet is based on a real-life chapter in the life of legendary stage actress Sarah Bernhardt. Rebeck’s play – by turns comedy and drama – goes backstage as “the Divine Sarah” rehearses for her scandalous, much-anticipated debut as the Dane.

Weary of coasting along in one lucrative revival of Camille after another, the 55-year-old Bernhardt is risking her career, her reputation and her feeble bank account to pull up her pants and go, literally, for broke.

‘Ozark’ Spoilers Review: The Good, the Bad, and the Baffling in Season 2, From That Neat Ending to a Slower Pace

‘Ozark’ Spoilers Review: The Good, the Bad, and the Baffling in Season 2, From That Neat Ending to a Slower Pace
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Ozark” Season 2, including the ending. For a spoiler-free review, read IndieWire’s initial reaction.]

If the first season of “Ozark” saw the Byrde family in denial about their circumstances and trying to bargain their way to freedom, then the second season moves through depression and into acceptance. The Kübler-Ross model for processing grief may not seem like a fitting comparison for a family sent spiraling from one catastrophe to the next, but remember this: That model isn’t actually for processing grief; it’s for people who know they’re going to die, and that seems about right for Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney), if a bit dark for their two kids.

Under this framework, the ending is reasonable, but it’s also indicative of what went wrong with Season 2. Chris Mundy’s thrilling first season hit the gas so hard it feels like these new episodes are constantly slamming on the brakes,

Ozark Season 2 Review: The Women Take Control

  • TVfanatic
The Byrde family is still waist-deep in the corrupt life they've created for themselves in the Ozarks.

Ozark Season 2 picks up right where Season 1 left off but something becomes clear as it progresses -- the women are in control now.

Jason Bateman was not only the draw for the first season, but the most compelling character as Marty Byrde struggled to come to terms with his formerly hidden illegal activities taking on a direction as different as the path he was on with his cheating wife, Wendy (Laura Linney).

The focus of Season 2, though, resets a bit as the Byrde family settles into life on the Lake of the Ozarks.

After the murder of their boss, the Byrdes work fast on their feet to find a way to stay in business. The harder they work, the dirtier they get their hands.

‘Ozark’ Season 2 Review: Jason Bateman’s Netflix Drama Slows Way Down in a Sturdy but Bland Follow-Up — Spoiler-Free

‘Ozark’ Season 2 Review: Jason Bateman’s Netflix Drama Slows Way Down in a Sturdy but Bland Follow-Up — Spoiler-Free
Ozark” Season 1 made so many bold choices, so quickly, that Season 2 was bound to slow things down. Engaging viewers with the escalating series of crises Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) and his family had to deal with immediately, the Netflix drama ate up a ton of narrative to provide its breakneck pace. Now that the ex-suburbanites have their backwoods criminal enterprise up and sailing, instead of plugging holes in a sinking ship, a steadier, more character-driven story comes with the territory.

But the degree to which “Ozark” slams on the breaks is disconcerting; the downshift in pacing creates an antsy viewing experience that transitions into blandness, as the follow-up season spends nearly seven hours setting up a moral turning point it could’ve easily implemented much sooner. While still a sharp, attentive, and altogether capable drama, the benefits of a successful first season don’t transfer to the Byrdes in Season 2 — or viewers watching them.

The Best TV Ensembles of 2017 Demand Recognition Beyond the SAG Awards
Judging an ensemble can be tricky, but it all comes down to what, exactly, you’re being asked to assess: Are you quantifiably measuring which cast members give the best individual performances, or are you judging how well a cast comes together overall? Are you counting award-worthy solo turns and rewarding the cast with the most? Or are you measuring the chemistry between a giant team all called upon to help create one specific story?
