Tony Soprano or Tony Awards??









I love, love, love Broadway Musicals and last night was the 61st Annual Tony Awards! Russell was so sweet to allow me to watch the three hour awards show while he reviewed for a case he has today. Come to think of it, it was probably because I made him dinner and we watched the season finale of The Sopranos first. Don't get me wrong, I definitely cared whether Tony Soprano got whacked. But the finale left A LOT to be desired. And after it was all over, I only cared about that other Tony, Broadway's Tony Awards for the bests in the New York theater season. Spring Awakening, the winner for best musical, book, score, direction, choreography, and best featured actor in a musical, is based on the formerly banned 19th century Frank Wedekind play about sexually frustrated German teenagers. You can watch the special preview video of the dark rock musical above. Just be sure to pause the music on my play list first!
