THE WHO’S TOMMY opened on Broadway today! Who can name the year?

This rock musical, based on the 1969 rock opera Tommy by The Who, was a smashing success with 5 Tony wins, including best score for Pete Townshend!

Who’s up for a revival?! 🙋‍♀️

When you write a play and the actors who play the lead role in France, the UK and the US all win the award for Best Actor... and then you decide to adapt it as your first film and you visualize Sir Anthony Hopkins in the part... and then he says yes... and you both win BAFTAs for your work😎 #adayinthelifeofFlorianZeller 🌟

THE FATHER was first produced in France in 2012, winning the Molière Award. In 2015 it ran in the West End with a translation by Christopher Hampton and in 2016 it was produced on Broadway by @mtc_nyc. The film version (Florian’s directorial debut) is nominated for 6 Academy Awards, was nominated for 4 Golden Globes and today won 2 BAFTAs: Best Adapted Screenplay (Florian Zeller & Christopher Hampton) and Best Actor in a Leading Role (Sir Anthony Hopkins)🏆🏆 Congratulations, @florianzellerofficiel, Christopher Hampton & @anthonyhopkins 🎉🎉🎉

Theatre is back. Well, a socially distant, no actors type of theatre. But hey, it’s a step in the right direction!

Theaters in NYC can now reopen at 33% capacity (which is commercially impractical for Broadway), and last night we attended Blindness at the Daryl Roth Theater, now on sale through September 2021. What a joy to be inside a theater again! 🎭🎟

Still reeling from the NYC Mayor's Office’s press conference🥳 Not only will vaccines be available for theatre workers, but he recognized Broadway as the jobs creator and economic engine of NYC that it is💥 100,000+ jobs. $15B generated in revenue. More than that Broadway is “part of our identity. It’s who we are. It’s what people love about New York City here and all around the world. AND it is so important to our future.” 🙏 We wholeheartedly agree, Mr. Mayor😎🏙 THANK YOU!!! #broadwaywillbeback #nyc #newyork

It has been a year of incredible loss. Loss of lives, loss of livelihoods. And, for people in the arts community, loss of what our lives are made of. As the cliche goes, there is a light at the end of this very long tunnel. We will be back, we will rebuild, hopefully rebuild for a world better than the one we lost and left behind. Here is to a future full of life, love, joy and incredible art❤️ #oneyearago #shutdown #arts #broadwaywillbeback 🙏✨

Happy International Women’s Day🎉 This fierce woman & icon of the downtown theatre world won 9 Obie Awards and became a Pulitzer Prize finalist. She was also the first female Latinx playwright to be produced on Broadway💥 Sadly her Broadway play, directed by Jerome Robbins, closed during previews. Any producer out there want to give the brilliant María Irene Fornés her long overdue Broadway opening?

“Sometimes when people pass, you can actually feel the hole in the universe,” Samuel L. Jackson said. “This is one of those.” Douglas Turner Ward, an actor, playwright and director who co-founded the Negro Ensemble Company, a New York theater group that “rocked the New York theater landscape, and established the careers of artists like Denzel Washington, Phylicia Rashad and the Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Charles Fuller” died earlier this week at the age of 90. Thank you for your incredible contributions to theater, Mr. Ward🙏 Rest In Power. (as reported by @nytimes / Mr. Ward, right, in 1967 with co-founder Robert Hooks / 📷: Don Hogan Charles)
