The Tonys

I use the Tony awards as inspiration every year to try and achieve the level such talented performers create, even if my stages are smaller. However, in the last two years I have turned off my television with some disgust at the recycled overly shiny material with little behind it. Musicals that were films that are musicals.
I always loved the Broadway actors who worked with less fashion and more reality than their Hollywood counterparts. Now the mix has been done and it is interchangeable.

The theatre is my church where I am increasingly standing on the outside steps. Is it sour grapes with me? Or has Broadway morphed into something else where I do not wish to worship?

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
