The 66th Annual Tony Awards (2012 TV Special)
Cote de Pablo: Our next nominee for Best Revival of a Musical has been re-envisioned in a new authentic Latin production.

Who knows? / Then joke that Mike Nichols had just earned his "dime" / But there's no time. / I'd mention Judith and Judy and Tracie as Judy / And Audra, I know, what a shock! / Ferris with flappers and Christian's kidnappers / And Christians who rolled with the flock. / Oh, jeez, did those Jesuses rock! / Oh, what a crime that due to certain people's speeches running long / You'll never get a chance to hear my clever song. / Although, I could ask Les, / The head of CBS, / Hey, Les, do you say yes or no? / The network has spoken. / It's telling me I'm / Completely out of...
