Insult to Injury?

"The new musical Glory Days, which opened and closed on Broadway on the same night, will not be eligible for nomination in any category."

One of the last-minute decisions handed down from the Oracle of Tony.

Also--there was apparently no "Special Theatrical Event" on Broadway between May 2007 and May 2008. So don't even think of nominating one!

Nominations announced Tuesday morning. So set your alarms. On "snooze" of course...

By closing (without notice) on opening night, GLORY DAYS violated the Tony requirement to offer performances that Tony voters could have been invited to. (The rule is 8 perfs OR -- if you close sooner -- at least half of the performances before you close.) There were no Tony voter perfs.

Thanks for clarifying, A. I suspected as much.

Still, I just pitied them after that headline...

Have no fear, anon. I have duly deleted the above sex-spammer.

Let that be a lesson to you pious pervs out there!
