The TONY's are coming! The TONY's are coming!

Nothing too exciting this year as far as I can tell.
Million-Dollar Quartet and Memphis look pretty snazzy. If I were to get free tickets to one of the nominated shows, I might pick Finnian's Rainbow, but I bet I'd settle on

Come Fly Away-- an
all dance musical to nothing but Frank Sinatra vocals + a big band. No script, no singing-- just movement tells the story. This show better win choreography! It's amah-zing.

A number of crazy new shows (including an Adamms Family musical) and "meh" fad musicals. I about panicked when I saw that my beloved
Ragtime is in revival and I wouldn't be able to go see it, but it appears that they've killed the magic completely; the choreography and acting are weak. All in all, I'm still excited for the show.

Ohhhh yeah. Unfortunately we won't have as much with without Neil Patrick, but hey. What can you do. We get another gay man to host this year! Yay.
