Diversity Wins!

Can you paint with all the colors of the wind? Take note, Hollywood!

Absolutely beautiful! Success and diversity do not have to be mutually exclusive. Talent doesn’t just exist in white people. May we continue celebrating the beauty of the rainbow on stage, and start giving real chances to people of color on screen. Will the Oscars ever produce a photo like this? One can only hope!

It’s Tony Time!

In my attempt to see everything before the Tony Awards, I have severely lacked updating this blog for all those negative number of people who actually read this. Expect a deluge of posts soon, unless I continue my lazy streak, but it’s not like anyone will notice! But enough about me.

It’s been a banner year on Broadway, which right now, really can’t be called the Great White Way. And that’s amazing. The Tony Awards mark the end of this season, and what an incredible year it has been! And while yes, all award shows put the emphasis on the competition, let us take a moment to reflect on the fact that everyone involved in the 39 shows this year gets to create art for a living. So to all those who weren’t nominated and all the shows that closed too soon, congratulations on making it to Broadway to begin with. Your art touches people. Your art matters. Thank you!
