According to CBS News, a medical emergency during a performance of uber-musical Hamilton last night in San Francisco resulted in sheer chaos and people getting hurt when it was thought to be due to a shooting. Fer chrissakes, people can’t even fall asleep at the theater anymore without a stampede and bloodshed.
It’s not exactly like the Trump White House has kept good relations with Hollywood (save for Scott Baio), but things went even further south earlier this year when Michelle Wolf was the chosen comedian at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. If you were Democrat, Michelle blew your wig off by comparing Sarah Huckabee Sanders to Aunt Lydia onThe Handmaid’s Tale. I know, that wasn’t nice to do to the gentler Aunt Lydia. Republicans, however, added Michelle’s bit to their Fox News primetime scream-a-thon, so the White House Correspondents’ Association has said they’re replacing comedy next year with a lesson from a biographer. ZzzzzzZzzzZzzz!
Indiana’s governor and our new Vice President-Elect Mike Pence (aka “The Man Behind The Orange Curtain“) was just trying to relax last night. He probably had a long day of gleefully assisting President-Elect Donald Trump in deciding which hugely problematic men to pick for his cabinet. He’s in NYC, why not see the biggest show on Broadway?
Hamilton got a total of 16 Tony nominations, which made it the most nominated Broadway production in the history of everything. Because everyone knew that Hamilton would win the night, I felt like they should’ve just canceled the entire Tony ceremony and instead show live footage of a dump truck unloading thousands of trophies in front of the Richard Rogers Theater, where Hamilton plays. But after the heart-melting hell nightmare in Orlando, some of us needed to be temporarily distracted by jazz hands, sequins, over-the-top speeches from dramatic thi-turr people, Oprah’s glasses and raw yodeling. So thank my God, Bea Arthur, for the Tonys!
