    History is indeed happening in Manhattan for Hamilton.

    Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking, Grammy- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical about the life of Alexander Hamilton picked up a record 16 Tony nominations on Tuesday morning,

    Along with a nomination for Best Musical and creator-star Miranda (nominated as an actor and for the show’s book and score), the show picked up nominations for actors Leslie Odom Jr. (Aaron Burr), Phillipa Soo (Eliza Schuyler), Daveed Diggs (Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), Jonathan Groff (King George), Christopher Jackson (George Washington), and Renee Elise Goldsberry (Angelica Schuyler).

    The previous record for the most Tony nominations was set in 2001 when The Producers picked up 15 nominations. In 2009, Billy Elliot, The Musical tied that number.

    He won't go cuz no one will care if he does.

    And the lack of fawning over his presence will be obvious.

    I remember when the Actors' Equity tried to stop Jonathan Pryce from playing the Vietnamese role of The Engineer in Miss Saigon. Interesting.

    I love musicals. Much more complex than just a play or just a group of musicians playing live. Lots of talent for relatively little money (compared to what movie actors make, who are usually far inferior to the singers/actors who perform in musical productions). The music is also more complex than popular music and musicians are required to read music (something you hear most popular musicians say they can not do).

    There is no leg room at Richard Rodgers theater so the only way Howard is going to the play is if they put him in the first row. Do you think Lin-Manuel Miranda could ad-lib a line "It would be such a blow to the people in the know that with 200 years to go that this man would produce a shitty radio show."

    Wow. You should ck out his interviews on Charlie Rose and 60 minutes. He talks
    about growing up going to a known high school and starting his theater career
    there. He says a lot of the other students were impressive.
    And yes, I've seen the show. Pretty top notch. Wigs was only going w/ Kimmel
    and wives. Surprised that they still can get comps though; celebs now complaining they are having a tough time scoring seats.
