Who watches them? I do every year… are you surprised… I didn’t think so… I know I am an award show junkie, but at least the Tony’s has a back story… I grew up a dancer and SWORE that I would be a Rockette and or dance on Broadway (that is until I learned that 1. I would never be 5’7—a requirement for the Rockettes and 2.HATED tap—a prerequisite for basically all things Broadway (I was more into Ballet)) therefore watching the Tony’s is my way of living out the dream to an extent.
The new shows this season look OUTSTANDING—it would be a DREAM to live in the hub of all of that culture and be able to attend those shows on a regular basis. The winner of Best musical—The Book of Mormon had a small feature and looked HYSTERICAL, I can’t wait till it starts touring (we all know I won’t be making it to NYC to see it!)
This year Neil Patrick Harris was the host and did an EXCELLENT job! If you missed it, and or the show on the whole… NPH did a wrap-up rap at the end of the show that was SOOO GOOD! He had writers doing it as the show was going on with things that people said as they accepted their awards and while the performances were happening and such... the whole thing ended with him saying go see a "mother ---- Broadway show!" he bleeped himself out with a little screech (like you might hear in a rap song on the radio) into the mic and then dropped the mic threw his hands in the air and walked off stage! EPIC! TOTALLY BAD A$$! Don’t worry I am posting it for you to see…
Move over Busta Rhymes! NPH is TAKING OVER!
See ya’ll next time!
