PlayBlog   Broadway Season Ends With Rapid-Fire Openings in Late April
 
So this is the way the season ends, not with a bang but with a bang-bang-bang-bang-bang. For the first time ever, according to statistics supplied by The Broadway League, a Broadway season will career dizzily to a stopping point, with the last five slots for 2009-10 Tony Award eligibility completely covered by show openings.


The work week of April 25-29 goes like this: Promises, Promises at the Broadway on April 25; Fences at the Cort on April 26; Enron at the Broadhurst on April 27; Collected Stories at the Friedman on April 28; and Everyday Rapture at the American Airlines Theatre on April 29.

At midnight Friday, April 30, when 2009-10 Tony eligibility ends, applications start being taken for the Happy Dale Sanitarium for any critics showing signs of short-circuiting.
