The Tonys: Whoppi Free Since 2009

So the Tony Awards were this evening, and I am feeling a little let down from the entire experience. The entire three-hour extravaganza wasn't bad, it just wasn't all that good either. The host, Neil Patrick Harris, felt like a non-entity for most of the show, there were technical issues aplenty, many of the numbers didn't make a lot of sense, and the straight plays still are the red-headed stepchildren of the Tony Awards. However, there were some good moments (and perhaps even some great ones, such as NPH's awesome closing number). Stay tuned for my thoughts on the ceremony - I will have the first post up by tomorrow!
