Tony Tube 2008

Here's a video round up of the best of Broadway, as seen on the Tony Awards last week:

- Of course, what everyone was talking about the next day: Xanadu's Cheyenne Jackson brings the house down with a fierce rendition of "Don't Walk Away".
- The Cry-Baby boys are "A Little Upset" (especially since their show closed a week later).
- Another show that announced their closing in the past week: A Catered Affair.
- For the wholesome family crowd, Disney was on hand with both The Lion King and The Little Mermaid ...
- ... with Megan Mullally in Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein there to scare them off later.
- Grease was the word ...
- ... but not the final word. That honor goes to Rent, reuniting the original cast for one last chorus of "Seasons of Love".

And for a little more Cheyenne, here's "All Over the World", as seen on Live with Regis and Kelly, plus a Tony red carpet interview from Broadway TV.

  1. Uh-Oh! Kirby calls me Vegas Musical Poison for viewing and writing about Vegas shows like Avenu Q, Hairspray, and Spamalot and somehow hastening their closings. Now the curse has apparently followed me to NYC, because I just wrote about Cry-Baby (It's a CRIME if they don't make a Cast Album!), A Catered Affair, and November, and all are closed or expecting to close soon. Maybe rival producers can now hire me to write about their competition? I'm always happy with free theater tickets!
