The 2019 Tony Awards are happening this coming Sunday, June 9, and my good friends at BroadwayHD have wisely sent a reminder that the PERFECT way to bone up on many of the nominated shows and artists (if you’ve not seen them live) is to stream them on this terrific, groundbreaking platform. I think of BroadwayHD as one of the few websites that has actually fulfilled all those early, grandiose goals and claims for the internet. Access to Broadway shows, for the millions of people who can’t get to New York or afford those high ticket prices. For this old vaudevillian populist, access is everything. And, at less than $9 a month for a subscription even I, who once mistook a church mouse for Elon Musk, can afford it. Go here to do it; you know you need to!
