Tony Awards Race Tightens Up as Musical “Beetlejuice” Plays First Crazy Good Preview, Sells Out the Winter Garden
The Tony Awards race is upon us. On Thursday night we got to see a major contender for Best Musical as “Beetlejuice,” based on the movie more or less, opened to a sold out show at the Winter Garden. The line to get into the cavernous Broadway house was literally wrapped around the block. Among those in the audience was Irving Burgee, the 95 year old writer of the song “Day O,” now part of an insanely fabulous first act closer. He came on a walker with two aides and gave a thumbs up to the show.
