IS THE AWARD SEASON OVER??

NOT BY A LONG SHOT! We still have the TONY AWARDS! That's Broadway, baby. I don't know which I love better, Broadway or Hollywood. We do have to wait a bit though, because the Tony Awards won't be on until June 15. The 62nd annual Tony Awards will be broadcast on CBS, live from Radio City Music Hall.

Top Girls is playing in London, and in New York, we have A Catered Affair, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Boeing Boeing, The Country Girl, Cry Baby, Gypsy, In the Heights, Avenue Q, Chicago, Curtains, Passing Strange, South Pacific, Sunday in the Park with George, Come Back Little Sheba, Mama Mia!, Jersey Boys, Top Girls, Thurgood, Xanadu, and more!


I will be seeing Jersey Boys next month right here in Florida. I can't wait! If I could transport myself molecularly, I'd be going to New York every weekend. To me, there is nothing like LIVE theater. I think that's why so many people love to watch The Oscars, not only because of all the stars, but because it's LIVE. And the Tony's are LIVE. It's so exciting, you never know what will happen from one minute to the next.

OK, I saw it! I saw Jersey Boys in Tampa on March 12 at 7:30 PM. Absolutely knocked my socks off!
Here's a clip for all you JB lovers, it's a ten star show... I think the touring company is BRILLIANT !

That's from the Tony Awards... and I'm telling you, this show I saw last night was better. The energy level was 120% non stop. Dynamite show, received a five minute standing ovation. And two of the main parts were played by understudies! I can't say enough about this performance, it was truly truly amazing.


Here is a clip from my absolutely favorite Broadway Show, CRAZY FOR YOU, where we see wonderful Harry Groener dancing so beautifully. Musicals are energizing!

And then, Broadway wouldn't be Broadway without the fabulous A CHORUS LINE, and here is a clip from the 1976 Tony Awards with the ORIGINAL Chorus Line!

I agree, Colin Firth is the best. My problem with flipping from the Oscars to P & P is that I have seen P & P so many times I am actually getting weary of it. Alas, I never thought I'd say that. I did watch the middle episodes that are the best and not to be missed.

Thanks for your visit to synchronizing! :)
