These don't count because they're plagiarized, but I thought I'd add them- when the [Title of Show] folks hosted the Drama Desk awards, they suggested listeners at home playing drinking games drink whenever someone used the following words in their acceptance speech:

CRAFT
JOURNEY
AMAZING
TRULY BLESSED
MAGIC (or MAGICAL)
OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME
SAFE SPACE
BILLINGTON
THANK
YOU

Thought it would be a fun thing to share.

Hi Kris,

I had to bag on the Steppenwolf party because of a family health emergency. Had I been drinking along to the rules proposed by Ed, there would have been a second emergency.

I do wish they had let Barbara and Criss make their acceptance speech for Chicago Shakespeare live. Wouldn't showcasing those theaters every year make it more interesting for people who see theater in places other than Broadway? But I guess it was desperately important to have the production numbers from shows that weren't even nominated instead. Guh.

Ed

In retrospect a more reasonable drinking event would have been:

Drink every time Whoopi appears onstage in a different outfit.
