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!!
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.
