And the Tony Goes To...

The Tony Award nominations were announced today, and LOMBARDI was largely shut out. Judith Light has been nominated in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play.

This is very bad news for Lombardi—the box office has been sluggish, and I suspect that they've been holding on in the hopes of scoring some nominations, with the box office bump they provide.

I also think it's unfair. Light is superb as Marie Lombardi, but she's not alone in that. There is some sterling work being done eight shows a week at Circle in the Square.

Unfortunately, I suspect we'll see a closing notice soon. If you're interested in seeing LOMBARDI—and you should be—buy your tickets now.
