Bad Descriptions of Tony Nominees

All due respect to the delightful nominees, summarizing them shortly and badly amuses me. 
Clyde's, by Lynn Nottage - Sandwiches are important. 
Hangmen, by Martin McDonagh - It's tough being a hangman. 
The Lehman Trilogy, by Stefano Massini and Ben Power - Jobs are in jeopardy at the auto plant. 
The Minutes, by Tracy Letts - Banking is tough when there's a financial crisis. 
Skeleton Crew, by Dominique Morisseau - Local government, am I right?

Best Musical
Girl From The North Country - Two strangers show up and everything changes. 
MJ - It's about this guy, you may have heard of him, Michael Jackson.
Mr. Saturday Night - What if this old guy was still funny? 
Paradise Square - The Civil War makes it hard to be friends. 
SIX: The Musical - What if all your exes went on the same reality show?
A Strange Loop - Writing is so hard, and sometimes the muse choir is no help.
