Unfortunately I didn't get to watch last night, but just a few comments in response to yours. I am very, very excited about "Mamma Mia" but I have never felt that having Meryl play Donna was that great of a casting choice...just because Donna is really supposed to be probably in her early to mid 40's--and Meryl just looks too old...just my thoughts.I had no idea that Eden Espinoza had gone into "Rent."
I had no idea that Robin de Jesus (from the movie, "Camp") was on Broadway in "In The Heights."
I'm thankful we didn't have to see a clip of Clay Aiken in "Spamalot" or Taylor Hicks in "Grease," although, American Idol finalist, Tamyra Gray, was spotted in a group number from "Rent."
I missed my friend, Jesse Martin, in the "Rent" reunion (he says he's had enough of them) but I loved singing along with Seasons of Love.
Did anyone else think the nominated lead from "Sunday In The Park With George," Jenna Russell, had an average voice?
I have no idea how "Xanadu" could be up for any kind of award.
I think anyone listening to Faith Prince sing at this award show might wonder why she continues to get leading roles in musicals (sorry Faith).
It was disheartening to see 3 contestants from the reality show, "You're The One Than I want" on Broadway - the two leads in "Grease" and another finalist in "Hairspray."
How could Mario Lopez be on Broadway? Unreal.
Did anyone else feel a bit queasy when Brooke Shields started off an introduction by saying, "Every time I come back to Broadway..."?
Has anyone who played Mama Rose on Broadway NOT been nominated for a Tony?
Anyone else excited about the movie version of "Mama Mia"? Gotta love Meryl Streep!
That's so cool that you are friends with Jesse Martin! He is super talented!
I remember prior to seeing Brooke Shileds in "Chicago" I was VERY doubtful about her...but you know what? She actually was great. Not only was she three months pregnant at the time I saw her (I can't imagine wanting to do anything but be near the bathroom or lie on my bed at that stage..) and she performed phenomenally well as Roxie. Is she a great singer? No--but she was adequate. Her dancing was great--much better than I expected.
