Applying to get into some high schools these days is like applying for college. Every year thousands of kids compete for a limited number of spots at performing arts high schools. Preparing for auditions is a pressure-filled process over several months that can lead to big smiles or lots of tears. But how can you prepare your child – and yourself — for this process?
So, the 70th Annual Tony Awards are in the books, and it was a great night! I spent the evening with about a dozen friends, and we had a viewing party. It was awesome! It was like we were in the Beacon Theatre, well, except that we had snacks and weren’t quite as dressed up as the Tony-goers were. And our ballots weren’t quite official.
So, there’s this little show happening on Sunday night. Most of America could care less, but for those of us who LOVE Broadway – it’s our Super Bowl! It’s almost Tony time!!! As a kid growing up in California, I looked forward to this every year. (I know you’re nodding your head right now if you grew up anywhere other than New York thinking, “Me, too!”) It was my only chance to see the people who were on the records (yes, RECORDS) of the Original Broadway Cast recordings that I listened to and memorized religiously.
