The Most Important Sunday of Summer

Hey Internet! I was going to write all about my weekend today, but Sunday was Tony Night, and really that’s all that matters isn’t it?

I’ve been so busy this Tony season and was woefully behind on the whole “knowing-who-is-nominated-and-who-I-want-to-win” thing. So I spent the night watching and reading the live tweets and looking up more info on the shows. And of course rooting my FACE off for NPH AND Audra McDonald because those are two people I KNEW I wanted to win. AND THEY BOTH WON!!!!!
NPH (all these pics are from The Tony Awards Instagram account – because I’m a thief):

 

Audra set the record by winning er SIXTH TONY:

    Despite my love of Broadway musicals, I never watch the Tonys, I’m not sure why! I did hear the Genie from Aladdin won and I really want to see that show!

      He did and it was awesome! I LOVE the Tonys. I’ve only ever been to New York once and the list of shows I want to see is 8,000 miles long, so I like getting to watch at least the tidbits that they show.
