MD Poll: Secretary's Day

It may not be nominated for a Best Musical Tony Award, but 9 to 5: The Musical can take solace in being named your favorite "screen to stage" Broadway production of the 2008-2009 season in our most recent MD Poll. Two tuners who are up for the top Tony, Shrek The Musical and Billy Elliot, The Musical, came in second and third, respectively. See the comments section below for the complete stats.

And speaking of the Tonys, this year's ceremony will be broadcast live from New York tomorrow night on CBS. Performing on the three-hour show will be the casts of all the nominated musicals (Next to Normal and Rock of Ages, in addition to Billy Elliot and Shrek) and musical revivals (Guys and Dolls, Hair, Pal Joey and West Side Story), as well as special performances from the touring companies of Jersey Boys, Legally Blonde and Mamma Mia! And last, but certainly not least: Elton, Dolly and Liza.

Joining host Neil Patrick Harris as presenters will be such stage (and screen) faves as Kristin Chenoweth, Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, Edie Falco, Carrie Fisher, Jane Fonda, James Gandolfini, Lauren Graham, Colin Hanks, Marcia Gay Harden, Nicole Kidman, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Lange, Frank Langella, Angela Lansbury, Audra McDonald, David Hyde Pierce, Piper Perabo, Oliver Platt, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Spacey, John Stamos and Chandra Wilson.
