We know, we know – it’s hard enough keeping up with Broadway. Forty shows running at any given time, the expense, the fact that there really are only so many hours in a day, it all adds up, and it is a maelstrom that will potentially suck you dry. That said, ah – you know, there’s a heck of a lot of good theater Off-Broadway, also. Of course, this adds over a hundred theaters to the roll, which can make the clarion call of the easy CBS procedural, or that book you’ve been meaning to read – or a nap – seem all the more appealing. We understand. We’ve been there. It’s okay. That said, considering the Tonys will be broadcast to great fanfare and reasonable acclaim, it seems only fair to lend the Obies a bit of the spotlight now, on their occasion, last night, where Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles took Best New American Play, and Gabriel Ebert and Mary Louise Wilson and Kirsten Greenidge all won, too.
