Toast of the Tony® Awards 2011

One award show that doesn't get its full televison watching audience are the Tonys®. I think it should be held to the acclaim of the Oscars® and Grammys®, but maybe the Mavericks v. Heat game stole away some viewers. I always enjoy watching this award show for it does exhibit talent from the stomping grounds of the stage and also gives you a front seat preview to Broadway plays from your living room. The stage is where most actors and actresses  hone their craft and this award show brings them back to their foundation before some of them made it to "Hollywood".

If you saw the 65th Annual Tony Awards, you got a real treat to great talent of stage and screen. Here are my takes on a few memorable moments from the broadcast.

A great host for the show. Caught in a web: Neil Patrick Harris- Spiderman Jokes (lol)

Surprise Audience Sightings: Bono and the Edge, Frank Abagnale, Jr.
