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…
… 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)
