Blackbird: Disturbing Wasteland ReBlog Day 6/18

1120396/18 #TonyAwards2016 – Best Revival of a Play
As the @TonyAwards approach, I thought #Frontmezzjunkies should repost all the reviews of all the main best plays/musicals/revivals in all four categories and list their nominations. So here it goes.
Day 6 of 18
Blackbird
#blackbirdbroadway
Up for 3 #TonyAwards
Including:
Best Revival of a Musical
Best Leading Actor – #JeffDaniels
Best Leading Actress – #MichelleWilliams
also:
1 @Drama League Award nomination
2 @Outer Critics Circle Award nominations
Here’s what I had to say about it back in the fall:
“‘Blackbird,’ directed with intense force by Joe Mantello, grabs hold of us and does not give us a chance to get out of this without some squirming in our seats…We would like to see the simplicity here, so we can be more comfortable, but thankfully, Harrower has no intention for comfort…This is not a play to go into lightly, but I applaud the bravery of all involved. It is upsetting, disturbing, and doesn’t allow us to make easy judgments.” click the link for the full review:
