On this special bonus episode all about the recent Tony Award Nominations, I’m so happy to introduce music director, conductor, and fellow podcaster Nate Patton. Nate and I first met when he was associate conducting Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Broadway. And his podcast called Booked It.
The title to one of his episodes was “Broadway is broken and I alone can fix it.” And it's this kind of witty, tongue in cheek and knowledgeable opinions that I wanted to bring on the show as we talk about these Tony nominations:
The lone best actor nomination of Aaron Tveit
The complete snubbing of the lightning thief
Only plays being nominated for best original score
Nate and I will also get into these topics and more, including what these nominations in general say about the state of theater today, and even make a few Tony predictions.
