2013 TONY Awards Roundup

I love the TONYs! I have said that before and I will say it again. The highlight of this years TONYs? Neil Patrick Harris. He totally was the star of the show with an amazing  opening

…middle…

… and end

Here is the full  Winners list

Other Things that I liked:

  • Matilda’s performance was spectacular. When I was watching the show I remember thinking how are they going to make a tony number out of this – and they did beautifully!!! 
  • Cindy Lauper – got to love her! she was so gracious receiving her award and her performance of True Colors for the In Memoriam was very touching 
  • Pippin – They did choose the right two songs for this 
  • The tap dancing kid of Christmas Story
  • The amount of Divas present (Patti Lupone, Bernadette Peters and Audra MAcdonald all were prominently featured)
  • Jane Lynch!!
  • Bring it on chose my favorite song from the musical (which i actually have in my ipod):  

Things I didn’t Like:

  • Kinky Boots performance. Not the highlight of the show at all, there are better songs in it in my opinion. (im also a bit disappointed that it won over Matilda) 
  • Tom Hanks not winning
  • The fact that Bertie Carve was leading and not featured and therefore didn’t win!!!
  • The presentation of the plays
  • The Fact that Motown performed – its not nominated!! its participation should have stayed in the opening number
  • The Rascals (see below for the clip)
