The Tony Awards at the Beacon Theatre last night were, as Neil Patrick Harris noted, '50 Shades of Gay'.

I'm not going to post any spoilers here but you'll see Patti Lupone pushing a lawnmower in the opening number, and Ricky Martin getting hit up by a Mormon in the intro.

Check out all the performances and the list of winners, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. NPH is a great host.
    Always lovely to see and hear la LuPone.
    Book of Mormon - brilliant.
    ALW wrote much better till Phantom. After, not so good.
    Elena Roger has obv. voice problems like so many other actors doing the part (inc. LuPone).

  2. Broadway and the Tony Award are like a bunch of old TV reruns on steroids.

  3. Matthew Broderick really has packed on the pounds. I thought he was going to explode in that dance number.

  4. NPH did it again! ... He needs to host the OSCARS.... Maybe It won't be as boring next year.

  5. I thought Trey Parker and Matt Stone were hilarious as the "Broadway Elite, the Establishment. And let's see which one of you young whippersnappers joins our group!"

    Exactly what Broadway needs, them. Because despite every nominated musical the one that opened the show and that everyone wants to see is theirs from last year.

    The piece from "Ghost" was painful. I actually had to look for the remote and turn down the volume from that shrieking before the end of it.

  7. Thanks for posting - a storm knocked out power and we had no TV last night. Love NPH!

  8. Great show, but I sure wish they'd find other ways to attach mics to performers. The number from hairspray with Corny Collins the mic in the middle of his forehead looked like a bad zit.

  9. I love Broadway... but aside from Mormon & Evita, I was kinda bored by the performances.

    It's amazing how many songs from Porgy & Bess have remained in our everyday songbook, but Audra's voice upstages the storytelling.

  10. Peter and the Starcatcher is the most incredible piece of theatre I've seen in ages. If and when a tour comes to your city, CHECK IT OUT.

    It's wonderful.

  11. Paul Rudd looked as tasty as ever!

  12. Mmmm...Rory O'Malley in "The Book of Mormon".....mmmmmmm.

    James Corden's acceptance speech was quite touching, I thought he was going to pass out for not taking a breath.

    "love to see mormom, too bad tix are $400"

    Tickets for the touring production at the Pantages in Hollywood went on sale yesterday, I couldn't get any despite repeated tries at Ticketmaster.com. Damn, it'll be the returns window for me. Top ticket:

    $170.00 Ticket + $14.70 Fees = $184.70

  13. What an impressive post. Thank you Mr. Towle.

  14. "Peter and the Starcatcher is the most incredible piece of theatre I've seen in ages. If and when a tour comes to your city, CHECK IT OUT. It's wonderful."
    Couldn't agree more!

  15. I'm missing when they announce the contestants and the winners… I'm glad that the "smaller" ie non-mass-Disney-et-al productions have won this year, although a stripped down version of Porgy{…} is not my cup of tea in the orchestra dept. Give me a full 60 piece any day, what it was written for. All the same, bless you Audra for existing and bless you NPH for the same, come back next year but to the Oscars.

    Also, is Norm Lewis not the sexiest thing one has ever seen?

  16. The NPH numbers were the best thing about the show- too bad TV doesn't produce variety shows anymore- of the nominated shows that actor playing Jesus looks like a serial killer.
