NY Tony Awards
They are onTV next Sunday. I don't know if they are carried nationally. They are much more down to earth than the Oscars so don't expect flashy gowns. It's always a fun show and performers to watch, imo, are:
Chistine Ebersole for Gray Gardens (about Jackie O's cousin.)
Rauol Esparda for Comany (revival) (about a 40+ batchelor checking out his married friends)
Most Distinguished Actress: Eve Best (Moon for the Misbegotten)
Most Distinguished Actor: Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon)
Best Musical: Spring Awakening
Best Drama: The Coast of Utopia
Check it out!!
and... World Peace!
yes it is shown nationally
and the tonys all dress up too... they're just not as well recognized (well most of them)
I always watch the awards...
Gotta Have Music
I watching the Tony awards, even if I have to watch the show a few days later (I'm not a night owl, so I don't stay up too late while school is still in session). Usually the ladies are dressed elegantly (and not overdone), and I love to see the production numbers from the various musicals. We get to NYC by train every so often to see a Broadway musical, but we usually try to catch the national tours of the shows when they come to Philly.
