    No one else notice when Douglas Hodge and the La Cage cast performed, Hodge went in the audience to have some fun, but when he went to sit on Will Smith’s lap, Smith got somewhat paranoid, said something and pushed Hodge away?

    Overall, the show was OK, but not as good as last year. It was the sound, especially in the opening, and overall direction (camera work was atrocious). They let the actresses who won babble on and on (didn’t think Scarlett Johansson was ever going to shut up at the beginning), then towards the end, with the major production awards, the producers to La Cage were cut off – possibly by accident.

    Sean Hayes IMHO did a wonderful job, except at the end where he appeared unsure of what was happening at closing. I put that blame on the director.

    There were too many Hollywood people at the Tonys. Doesn’t Broadway have any non-Hollywood stars to showcase? Like real actors? WTF were the Pinket/Smiths doing there in the front row and presenting also? Those two have no talent other than marketing them selves and Scientology.

    I shouldn’t say this, but I am surprised that American Idiot didn’t get more awards and praise. Not to be a bitch, but the whole concept was fresh and intelligent and deep…creating a whole new generation of theater goers, like RENT. It deserved a little more recognition in my opinion. And what about Hamlet…Jude Law’s Hamlet was amazing…simply amazing. And last time I was in New York we saw a fantastic play called “The Understudy” no props for that one either. I just don’t understand these award shows. I mean, a “little Night Music” how many times has that been done? Seriously. Just my opinion, but if it wasn’t for RENT and shows like Wicked, Billy Elliot, Avenue Q…people would give a shit about Broadway theater. Course one of the best pieces ever written “Taboo” was closed before it even gained…just because it was a little controversial. ugh!!

    Catherine Zeta-Jones has been very, very ill and missed most performances in the last week. She lost her voice and it’s not 100 percent there yet (which she acknowledged in her speech).

    @Paul, A Little Night Music has never been revived on Broadway since its original 1973 production. Unfortunately, this awful revival was not the way to do it.

    Catherine Zeta Jones was so miscast. As was everyone else in the show, including Angela Lansbury. Trevor Nunn turned a perfect musical into the most boring piece of synthesized crap ever.

    I’m hoping Bernadette Peters will inject some actual Sondheim knowhow into the production when she takes over for Zeta Jones. Unfortunately Elaine Stritch (???!!!!) is cast as Mme. Armfeldt.

    What the fuck were Joe Camel and Trash-a Not-Even-Close-to-Fierce doing in the front row? Their asses weren’t even up for awards.

    The show was a little too Hollywood for me. I liked it better when the Tonys showcases REAL talent, people who worked the boards for a living, not Hollywood whores desperately attempting to prove that they’re more than just box office gold.
