|I have always felt it was a terrible shame that such extraordinary writing was never eligible for Tonys even though the shows were never on broadway (no fault of the writers)... and the score and book work on Assassins, Little Shop of Horrors, Hedwig, and Violet deserved to get those writers nominations if not wins, as will be true when other off-broadway shows make it to Broadway, like the upcoming A Man of No Importance which has a Tony-nom worthy score and book, and when Floyd Collins surely makes it to Broadway eventually, and if A New Brain ever does (celebrity depending, or if Groff wants to do it again in a few years, which I have suspicion he will) or even if something like The Fantastics did ... you never know what could happen if a box-office-draw actor wants to do it. These writers and their incredible work deserve Tony recognition, even if the musical as an entity or title is deemed a "revival".
I know this won't ever happen, and i know it presents a complicated scenario and a confusing one, granted. But still.
(Also I'd hate for these show's writing to be eligible for nomination and then not get one if the category is too crowded or the nominators favor actually new unestablished musicals, or even just prefer the other eligible scores -- that does seem worse for the writers than just accepting that their show is part of the repertoire and not eligible as new... but STILL...)
