Hey, Our First E-Mail From a Tony Award Nominee!

Park Cities boy Doug Wright writes in regarding our having mentioned his Tony Award nomination:

"Thanks so much! I'm giddy over our Grey Gardens nominations; a loopy musical about cat ladies, living out their dreams in an overgrown Easthampton rat trap! Who'd have thought it would ever make it to Broadway, never mind garner so many nominations? We're beside ourselves!

Right now, I'm in mid-travel. I'm in LA doing some film work…then back to New York to start rehearsing for The Little Mermaid. We open in Denver on July 23rd, and on Broadway December 6th."

The film work, we assume, is probably Bunny Lake is Missing, which Wright's allegedly working on with director Joe Carnahan -- and, yes, it's a remake of Otto Preminger's 1965 movie about a mother who reports that her little girl's gone missing, which no one buys. But...The Little Mermaid? Oh, yeah, right. Guess so. --Robert Wilonsky
