First day of school

TONY'S! TONY'S! TONY'S!

            Okay, here’s a basic summary of this morning (I’m only running on three hours of sleep and I need to collapse, so that’s why it’s basic)

 

          We got to the Tony’s dress rehearsal and found out it was open seating – we got pretty good seats too. The girl sitting one seat away from me goes to Hofstra, and I know her. Small world.

         

          Hugh Jackman is AMAZING! (He’s hosting it again) I love him! J Harvey Firestein, Idina Menzel, Hank Aazaria, Tim Curry, David Hyde Pierce, James Earl Jones, Christina Applegate, Norbert Leo Butz,  Anne Hathaway, and so many more!

 

          Hi-lights from “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” “Spamalot,” “Sweet Charity,” “The Light in the Piazza,” and Hugh Jackman singing.

 

          AMAZING! J
