Celebrating Broadway's Best New Musicals
I've written repeatedly about the two best new musicals on Broadway: "Grey Gardens" and "Spring Awakening." Now the NYTimes does an appreciation of the shows and their best two numbers. For "Gardens," that would be "Another Winter In A Summer Town" (a standard in the making) and for "Spring" that would be "Totally Fucked," a song title the Times didn't even try to publish with astericks. Good news: "Gardens" is finally recording a version of the Broadway show which will be out in March. Christine Ebersole will surely win Best Actress and "Spring Awakening" will be Best Musical, I think.
