Broadway’s Tonys ! Let the Horse Race Begin !

My favorite….

Broadway’s Besties will be announced tommorow morning, May 1, Tuesday, Eastern.

Most years there is a heavy favorite for best musical – “The Book of Mormon” was a shoo-in last season – but all bets are off at this point, with strong arguments for/against the all-but-certain nominees “Newsies” and “Once” (with six other musicals competing for two other best musical slots)……more…

Good luck to all !
