Broadway's Best

June 18, 1989

Watching the Tony Awards was like sitting with an old woman who is showing you pictures of herself when she was beautiful. You look at the photos ("West Side Story," "Fiddler on the Roof," "Our Town") and compare them with what time and her life have done to her ("Starmites," "The Heidi Chronicles"), and you understand why the past is so important to her, and it breaks your heart--or it should.

If producers have managed to elbow their way onto Broadway ahead of artists now, is it any wonder the only thing we'll be able to remember about today's grotesque spectacles is how much they cost?
