Here are my thoughts on tonight’s Tony Awards. Love to hear yours!
Radio City Music Hall: So glad we are back here. Much better place to host the awards. Such a classy place. And bigger enough for a large, appreciative audience!
Neil Patrick Harris: What can I say? He can do no wrong. 4th year doing this. Loved the opening song, Neil.
SMASH meets the Tonys: Brilliant to have Laura Benati, Andrew Rannells, Megan Hilty and NPH sing about the pros and cons of TV vs theatre. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
The Presenters: I thought it was clever to have various “characters” do presenting and announcing.
All the musical numbers: A Christmas Story, Pippin, Matilda, Bring It On, Motown, Annie, Cinderella, Rascals (?), Kinky Boots, Mystery of Edwin Drood made me realize how much I miss being a part of a show. Good times.
Cyndi Lauper: You gotta love her. Congrats girl.
Phantom of the Opera: 25 years. Truly amazing and still going strong. Get well soon Lord Webber.
Can NPH just host the Tonys forever? Thank you, and amen.
