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.

Sunday in the Park with George is wonderful. See it live, but also see the recording of the original broadway cast - Bernadette Peters and Mandy Ptenkin (I spelled that wrong). The are wonderful. I saw it live a few years ago and it was still excellent, but you can't beat Mandy's tenor. You can get the DVD at amazon, or netflix I'm sure. It's worth the investment, if nothing else to put on as frequent background noise when you're doing other things.

Did I tell you that I resumed my season tickets for every musical in Seattle? This time I got a pair of tickets so I can take someone with me. Add that to good reasons to visit Seattle. :-)

Since a lot of hit musicals start in Seattle before going to Broadway, it's pretty cool. I'm excited to see what comes out this year.
