Was "Les Miz" Revived Or Resuscitated?
Both "Les Miz" and "A Chorus Line" are carbon copies of the originals, so should they even be eligible for Best Revival? That's the debate keeping theater buffs up at night, says the NYPost's Michael Riedel (who as always manages to work in himself into the story). The fair compromise is that the show and actors will be eligible but not tech awards for directing, costume, etc. since no new creative approach was taken. Keeping them out entirely would be unfair to the performers.
