Did You Know?


Neil Patrick Harris: [Opening number] If you've seen a show, then you already know/How magical theatre can be/It's a two-hour, live-action, barely affordable, un-lipsynced version of Glee/So this song goes out to the rest of you/Those who've never seen theatre before/Because Broadway has never been broader/It's not just for gays anymore!

65th Annual Tony's: Choices Debatable But Great Show ***1/2
14 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the musical being "The Book of Mormon," what may we expect in the future? Will there next be a musical based on Elmer Gantry?

The opening number singling out gays was good, but why do you have to bring religions into this?

Ms. Lewis's speech for best featured actress in 'Mormon' was quite long and why did it take so long before she was prompted with music to get off? The other winners were prompted much faster. Double standard here?

The emcee was good and his routine with former emcee, Hugh Jackson, was lively.

As always, the musical numbers were well staged and you wonder why Daniel Radcliffe was denied a nomination for 'How to Succeed.' Bobby Morse, the original guy in the cast, has really aged, but after all it's 40+ years since he belted out the themes. Whatever happened to Maureen Arthur, who was so great in the film? John Laroquette, who was voted best featured actor in a play, probably deserved it. In the original, the role was created by Rudy Vallee.

What kind of hat was Whoopi Goldberg wearing when she appeared on stage? I thought she was Etta Mae again in "Ghost."

The John Leguizano appearance was a complete absolute waste of time. Loved the audience participation at the opening number. Did they have to bring up the Anthony Weiner scandal? They have plenty to hide in their closets as well.
