  1. I recognize all the teen players but never heard of the play despite all the 2017 Tony awards. Not my area of interest.

    Is it odd that they’re starting the teen tournament on Wednesday? I thought the tournaments usually started on Monday and ran for 2 weeks.

    Oh, because of Thanksgiving – I get it now.

    I’ve told my daughter that I want her to watch this tournament, and once she sees today’s FJ, she might be hooked for life, as Dear Evan Hansen was pretty much all she could talk about last year. 😉
