I had to dedicate tonight's post to one of my favorite nights of the year... the Tony Awards!
I've talked about my love of Broadway before, and what better way to celebrate a love of Broadway than by watching an awards show that celebrates all of the amazing shows that run eight times a week! This year's Tony's are hosted by the amazing Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, who are probably most well-known for their roles as Glinda in "Wicked" and the Emcee in "Cabaret" respectively, though both have played numerous roles over their amazing careers.
I actually had the pleasure of meeting Kristin Chenoweth when she starred in the show "Promises, Promises" with Sean Hayes back when I was in high school. I had gone to the show with my mom, and I was able to meet Kristin at the stage door afterward. She even signed a "Promises, Promises" Christmas ornament that I bought at the theater and had a whole conversation with me. It was a highlight of my Broadway experiences.
Watching the Tony Awards is such a great experience because it highlights all of the things that I love about Broadway. You get to see all of the singing and dancing from the season's top musicals, and hear from incredible actors and actresses. Now, I do have to confess that I'm a die-hard musical fan, but I don't really enjoy a regular play. I love to sing, and I was part of quite a few school musicals throughout my lifetime, so that's where my heart lies.
The Tony Awards are always a fun night, but the past few years have been really fantastic because of the incredible hosts. I don't think anyone will ever live up to the legend who is Neil Patrick Harris, but I'd say that Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming did a pretty awesome job tonight. It was a lot of fun, and you could just feel the energy from the stars radiating through the television. It was a great show!
