MODFAB THINKS...that there was no bigger heartbreak this year than the realization that his beloved Exit The King -- a sprawling, confusing, difficult, brilliant piece of theatre -- would probably be too much for Tony nominators to handle. But don't lose total hope...this is the most volatile, and competitive, category of the year. And there's also a wild card: Speed-The-Plow, which had a tumultuous run and a court battle with its former leading man...and still managed to end in the black. That's an accomplishment that Tony voters like to celebrate, especially in these financial times.

DARK HORSE: Sooooo, so many. Even I'm unsure as to whether Godot, Blithe Spirit, or Desire Under The Elms has enough horsepower to break through to a nomination. I could easily envision them all as nominees tomorrow.

I'd vote for Speed-The-Plow, one of my favorite revivals of the year, period.
