It’s been a typically weird season for Broadway, with little orphan Annie once again captivating audiences with her story of a little girl getting plucked from obscurity by a Romneyesque billionaire, Katie Holmes breaking free from Scientology’s clutches by starring in an intimate chamber-piece of a drama, and the expeditious closing of David Mamet’s latest play as a revival of his Glengarry Glen Ross extended its preview period for what felt like an eternity. And all of that will come up for mockery at tonight’s 2017 Tony Awardz, a midseason check-in taking on the year’s best, worst and most laughable in the form of an awards show in the not-too-distant future. Maybe by then, Ms. Holmes will be our generation’s Kristin Chenoweth.
