It's Tony week :blob8:

To get us into the spirit, here's a clip of Cheyenne Jackson (ever hear of him? :)) singing "On Broadway" with a montage of all the various shows playing...so cheesy and cute!

Here are the nominations:

http://www.playbill.com/news/article/128922-Nominations_for_2009_Tony_Awards_Announced_Billy_Elliot_Earns_15_Nominations

I am especially rooting for Billy Elliot for musical, Hair for revival of a musical, Angela Lansbury for Featured Actress in a Play, and Raul Esparza for Best Actor in a Play. (Even though I'm pretty sure he won't win...but he's fantastic.)

Anybody else following?

    They were so good!! I was really happy for HAIR! the only thing to complain about is the Audio sucked they had so many problems.. during the opening number when Elton sang, during the HUGE group number and also when Titus Burgess sang his number from Guys and Dolls!

    also did you see Bret Micheals get almost knocked out by the lowering piece of stage... OOPS!

    The sound was a hot mess. Other hot messes included: Shrek (I have NO desire to see that) and Liza (in a good way)

    but that had to be the best opening number i've ever seen on the tonys. wow. i had goosebumps.

    and i loved it when all three leads in "billy elliott" won. they were verklempt. so cute.
