For those that are interested in that type of thing...here is the list.
I'm sure that there will be some excellent discussion about the Tony Awards here. As it is, the biggest news is that Legally Blonde didn't get nominated for Best Musical and Mary Poppins did. If you really, really care about that... you are probably not a regular reader of this particular blog.
Awards shows require an almost religious zeal to enjoy: You have to believe in and love the meaning of entirely symbolic gestures; ignore reasonable pleas that cast doubt upon your enjoyment; and accept blissfully rules that seem arbitrary and unfair.
It's exhausting. Have some dip.
