Don't Miss Best Revival of a Play Nominee, "Joe Turner's Come and Gone"

Bartlett Sher won a Tony last year for directing the revival of “South Pacific” for Lincoln Center Theater, and on June 7 he’ll be at the Tony's again, nominated as director for the revival of “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.” The day after the Tony's, he’ll dive into his next project: a musical version of the film “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar. The man doesn't stop turning out the most amazing productions on Broadway. I think he's genious and Joe Turner proves it once again. I'm glad I don't have to pick among the four nominees for best revival for a play: “Joe Turner's Come and Gone,” “Mary Stuart,” “The Norman Conquests" and "Waiting for Godot". All great productions, but Joe has got a great shot at winning the big prize!

It was Mr. Wilson’s favorite among his plays — and that of many critics — “Joe Turner” was not a raging popular success in its first New York incarnation. Unfortunately it is not a big seller now as well even after the rave reviews and multiple Tony nominations. It would be a shame if this production doesn't find a wide audience and I think that it really needs this Tony for Best Revival in order to stick around on Broadway. The show has an amazing cast who give powerful performances. Lead by Roger Robinson who's been nominated for Best Featured Actor in a Play.
