The Tony Awards

I was going through my DVR and discovered that my roommate had recorded the Tony awards! I didn't even think about it. Aaaaah.. it's such a treat!!! So I fast-forwarded and watched the Musical pieces:

Lion King -- Circle of Life, which still made the hair on my arms raise. Loved the gazalles and baby elephant and the birds and the lionnesses.

Crybaby was interesting. Had a good tap number. So-so.

Passing Strange did the song about the keys/Amsterdam.. which was not so bad... I didn't like the show when I saw it but maybe I was too harsh.
Gypsy's I had a dream. Oh my goodness. This was amazing!! Patti Lupone was.. Amazing. I mean, like wow, my jaw dropped and hair raised and... wow.  She got a standing ovation.

South Pacific. They did several songs from this revival. Umm.. it was very seventies. I didn't like it.

Grease. They did songs I didn't know... not Hand Jive or Summer Lovin! But they seem to have fun.

Montage of short bits from My Little Mermaid -- Part of your world, A Catered Affair and Young Frankenstein (not putting on the ritz ;(.. but it does make me want to watch Young Frankenstein)

In the Heights: Interesting... they did a song about winning the lottery which was carribean/hip-hop/rock.
Sunday in the park with George: I want to see this
Xanadu: Looks as gay and crazy as suspected.

Rent: They did a short La Vie Boheme, and then the original cast members showed up.. and together they did Seasons of love.
