TD 335 - Center Stage

Post by rpryor03 » Sun Feb 26, 2017 5:28 pm

Think Differently 335, Center Stage

The Rules
1. Submit your entry via Google form.
2. Brains, not computers or books.
3. DROP one question and take 0 points for it.
4. Take a demotion to the ENSEMBLE for one question and take points for the most common answer.
5. Wrong answers drop you to the ENSEMBLE + 5 points.
6. There are two bonus questions worth -3 and -2 points.
7. PM me with questions or corrections.

1. NOT THROWING AWAY MY SHOT. 12 different musicals have been announced as eligible for the 2017 Tony Awards. (As of February 10, 2017) Name one.

2. THIS COULD BE YOU. For the 2016 Tonys, the nominees for Leading/Featured Actor/Actress in a Musical joined host James Corden for an opening number, “That Could Be Me/This Could Be You.” Name one of the nominees for Leading Actor or Leading Actress in a Musical for last year and the show they were in.

3. LET’S SING SOME KARAOKE, IN A CAR!
James Corden was a great host of the 70th Tony Awards (2016). If he repeats this year, he’ll join a category with 12 different actors and actresses, the people who have hosted multiple times. Name one.

4. OF THEE I SING. A depression-era musical by the Gershwins, Of Thee I Sing was a political satire where a third party ticket (the “love ticket”) runs for President. Wikipedia has labeled nine third party contenders for the Presidency since 1968 as being significant. I will give you a list of the years, name one candidate and the year they ran. (NOTE: The candidate for 1992 and 1996 is the same. Either year works, and all answers will be counted under the same line)
Spoiler
Show
1968
1972
1980 (x2)
1992, 1996
2000
2016 (x3)
5. SHAKESPEARE’S GREATEST HITS. Since the creation of the category in 1994, the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play (and including its precursor, the Tony Award for Best Revival [1977-1993]) has seen eleven different nominees that were written by William Shakespeare. (Two shows was nominated twice for two different productions.) The year of the award show is given, you DO NOT need to match the play to the year.

6. I’VE GOT A BIG EGO(T). The famed EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) club still has 12 members with Lin-Manuel Miranda having fallen short of getting an O. Name a member, and for a bonus -1 points, name one of the works that won them one of the awards.

7. I’M READY FOR MY CLOSE-UP!
This year, La La Land lost the Best Picture Oscar. Ten other movie musicals have won one. Name one.

8. IS THIS A CROSS-OVER EPISODE? Over the years, many popular actors have been able to seamlessly transition to performing in a movie musical. Given the picture, tell me the actor and the movie the screenshot is from.
Pictures are here

9. ALL HAIL THE QUEENS! Julie Taymor was the first woman to win a Tony for Best Direction of a Musical. She won for directing The Lion King in 1998. Since then, 9 women have been nominated or won the award. Name one based off of the list of shows worked on.

E. Rock of Ages
F. Hair, Porgy and Bess, Pippin
G. Ragtime
H. Violet
I. Fosse (alongside Richard Maltby, Jr.)
10. WHERE’S MY FEDORA? Choreographer and Director Bob Fosse’s semi-autobiographical movie All That Jazz brought Broadway across the world, especially to Cannes, where Fosse won the Palme D’Or in 1980. Fosse choreographed 14 Broadway musicals over his career, which spanned from the 1950s to the 1980s. Name one musical he choreographed (or “musically staged”)!

BONUS 1. PHILLY, NOT NEW YORK For -3 points, the popular TV show It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia did a musical episode in their fourth season that was expanded into a live production featuring such songs as Just to be Clear; It’s Nature, Shit Happens; I’ve Got a Troll in my Hole; Troll Toll; and Tiny Boy, Little Boy, Baby Boy. Name either of the two lead characters (played by Mac and Dennis) of the musical.

BONUS 2. GLEE-FULLY SINGING. Before he became popular on TV in Glee and on Broadway in How to Succeed and Hedwig, Darren Criss was/is a member of a musical theatre and improv troupe named Team Starkid that was started at the University of Michigan that has gained popularity by posting their musicals on Youtube. For -2 points, name one of their musicals.

In question 5 are you asking for the Shakespeare play?

If anyone is hesitant to play this TD because you think you might miss a few, don't worry, you won't be the only one. I count as many as 4 that I might have missed, not including a drop and an ensemble. I'm just hoping to beef up my trivia knowledge in a very weak area.

Could you explain question #1? What makes a show eligible for the Tonys? I can think of a few musicals in previews now, would these qualify? Do you mean original musicals and revivals?

If this is for number 1, then it is original musicals only. They should have opened on/after April 29, 2016 until April 27, 2017.

Took some time off playing these, going to give it another go. Can't say theater is my strong suit, but enough crosses over to other media and pop culture for me to at least take educated guesses on a couple of these. Thanks for hosting!
