‘Hamilton’ creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda.

(AP) — The megahit musical Hamilton has grabbed a record-breaking 16 Tony Award nominations, the biggest haul in Broadway history and another notch in the show’s march into theatrical history.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop-flavored biography about the first U.S. treasury secretary on Tuesday broke the 15-nominations record held by The Producers and Billy Elliot. Hamilton was nominated in virtually every category it could compete in, from acting to scenic design.

Uprisings: November 19 – December 3

As the windbag chorus of conservative war hawks circled the Eiffel Tower with misguided visions of cultural superiority after the Nov. 13 attack on innocents in the Paris city center, those of us who still drape our tear ducts with compassion were rattled at best (sobbing at worst), were allowing ourselves a minute before jumping into a Les Miserables with which many of us are only familiar in a good-guy/bad-guy binary sense. This column was anxiously awaiting some serious clarification from the foreign policy pockets making up this year’s My Three Democrats for their second official debate on CBS. Humor, we thought; maybe that will help.

This is how it goes. You starch your sarcasm collar up high and point your judgment nose low, and then everything falls into a saltwater pool of international proportions. While we had planned on digesting the Nov. 14 debate on CBS between the Democratic triumvirate bench in the typical bathroom manner with which we digest small bits of food, today has fallen beneath the pall of Friday night’s coordinated attacks on Paris and on Beirut. There’s still talk that this plays into theRussian plane crash and any other act of terror that might be bothering the temples on either side of your eyes. In response, CBS told the New York Times that it is realigning its question path to match the timbre of the times (the Bernie Sanders campaign apparently threw a tantrum at the last minute content redirection, according to report; in response, Clinton likely put on her best foreign-policy acumen dress). The O’Malley situation seems less relevant by the minute, but he’s eye candy, so there’s that.

I write this column on the very day of the landmark Supreme Court decision that ushered in marriage equality in all 50 of our United States.

So I suppose Watermark readers might anticipate this viewpoint space would be dedicated to that topic, but I simply don’t think I have anything of merit to add to the discourse that hasn’t already been better stated by someone else, not the least of which was President Obama.

NEW YORK (AP) – The musicals An American in Paris and Fun Home each received a leading 12 Tony Award nominations on April 21, showing two very different sides of this Broadway season.

One side is sunny – the dance-heavy stage adaptation of the 1951 musical film with George and Ira Gershwin songs.

The other moody – the dark show based on Alison Bechdel’s coming of age graphic novel about her closeted, suicidal dad.
