Broadway Update

Hamilton will transfer to Broadway this summer

No sooner do we get over the Oscars than it's time to start thinking about the Tonys...and the Drama Desks...and the Lortels..and the Outer Critics. Invitations to the final rush of Broadway shows have begun to pour in. March and April are looking very crowded as we approach the Tony cut-off date of April 23. Of course the hottest ticket in town isn't on Broadway. Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda's rap-hip-hop treatment of the controversial founding father, is such a smash at the Public, it's moving to Broadway in the summer. Will it be remembered for the 2016 Tonys? Speaking of 2015-16, Bruce Willis will be starring in a stage version of Misery and Oprah has dropped the idea of headlining a revival of Night, Mother. Too depressing she says. Here's a rundown of the rest of the season:
