  1. I thought the musical number about appearing on Broadway then heading to Hollywood for television and having your show cancelled was quite funny.
    I thought cutting off the charming (and elderly) Cicely Tyson with the "shut up" music was completely groan inducing.

  2. Congrats to Cyndi!

  3. Thrilled to see that Cicely Tyson won in her category. I have always wondered why so much talent has had so little screen time, comparatively at least - if it was her choice or one imposed on her.

  4. Cyndi Lauper!! YEAH!! YEAH!! Bravo Miss Cyn!! You ROCK!! Kinky Boots! AWESOME!

  5. I'm sorry but Kinky Boots is crap. As far as I know, it's a bunch of heteronormative stereotypes. It's amazing how gay guys get sucked in year after year by women who claim to be gay-friendly, whether it's Madonna pushing her music or Cyndi pushing her show.

    Kinky Boots has nothing to do with male homosexuality. Stop thinking that it does.

  6. Why do the Tony awards merit so much coverage on a blog geared toward gays and lesbians?

    Posted by: Ron Ico | Jun 10, 2013 3:29:34 AM


  7. @Ron Ico — you are obviously joking, no? Or did you just come across the wrong blog on your way to the Costco Cyber Summer Sale?

    Hats off to Cyndi, this puts a cap on her already illustrious career, hope she puts something new into the works (with her as the central character so she can SING), the theater world is now her oyster. Seems like pretty much everyone who won deserved it. Strange though (or not) how all the stills from the Tonys show look like outtakes from SMASH (or is that how it was supposed to be?).

  8. Broadway is NOT particularly inclusive of homosexual men as thematic material. Can someone point me to a play in recent years that has been inclusive of homosexuality in men? There's none.

    And, please, spare me the plays about drag queens and AIDS sufferers. They have nothing to do with homosexuality in men.

  9. I'm back, just watched the opening number (I'm viewing this from Europe) and, as cynical as I generally am, this was one of the cleverest and fully entertaining numbers I have ever had the pleasure to see. Thank somebody that Neil Patrick Harris exists. And when all the casts from different shows were present at the end, well… a few tears. Good use of Radio City. Though now I know why I made the SMASH connection, those cast members were in fact all there. Odd, as they're TV.

  10. @Adam: Take Me Out, 2003 Tony for Best Play.

  11. Oops, my bad. Sorry.

    Posted by: Adam | Jun 10, 2013 9:30:30 AM


  12. Kinky Boots is not a particularly good show. The music is derivative (although Cyndi has 2 or 3 very good songs, most notable "The Sex is In the Heel" and the Finale. The story is a mashup of Hairspray, La Cage, and Billy Elliot. The premise is beyond ridiculous and the message is so trite as to be embarrassing. Moreover, the singing is uniformly below average across the board in the cast. The lead (the son who owns the shoe store is so bland as to be invisible) is so average it makes you wonder where all the talent is.

    Voters said that while they thought Matilda was better, it was too dark and not inspiring. That's a completely embarrassing thing to say. I'm surprised anything good ever gets anywhere on Broadway.

  13. jonathan, it's been years since there has been anything on Broadway worth seeing. It's all about being commercial and getting all those investors their money back. Even Off-Broadway has become trite. Sad.

    MIke, I agree with you. That was so insulting when they did that to Ms. Tyson. @$$holes.

    Posted by: jamal49 | Jun 10, 2013 10:23:42 AM


  14. I don't think it is rude to cut of Ms Tyson, she was rambling on like a bad Mya Angelou poem..You won an award for acting you did not cure cancer...do I really need to sit through 5 minutes of dramatic pauses? Get Over Yourself..Goodbye.

    Posted by: Glen | Jun 10, 2013 10:30:04 AM


  15. jamal49: "Once" was the best thing I've seen in 15 years, moving, subtle, musical, just basically magnificent. And it had not one splashy production number in it. So I respectfully disagree.

    Posted by: jonathan | Jun 10, 2013 10:53:01 AM


  16. @Adam: You must be newly out if you think there's no material in Broadway offerings that has nothing to do with homosexuals. If you want to be specific and dislike certain things that bother you about homosexuals, well that's your own problem.
