So over the years I've glanced at the Tonys. I've watched bits and pieces every year, but it's never been an event like the Oscars where I end up getting sucked in for the whole show.
This year, I watched the whole show. What can I say? I love a good musical!
The performances were fantastic!! And I have to say, Mr. NPH tied the whole show together. It was his third time hosting, and though the only thing I saw from last year's show was his opening number (which was hilarious) he did a really great job this year! His closing number was so funny and quick witted too, I loved the whole show!
I mean, look at the guy. How can you not smile by just looking at him?
What I love about the Tonys is seeing the shows that are "it" right now in NY. Hopefully if they keep it up in NY they'll be bound to come to Chicago! I'm hoping for Newsies and Porgy and Bess, and just because it stole the show, Once looks good too. I also thought that Audra McDonald sounded absolutely gorgeous during her performance, and her speech was sweet too!
Are you a fan of musicals/plays? Did you watch the Tonys? I loved it! Perfect ending to a wonderful weekend, if I do say so myself!
