Tony Award Performances Announced – Sutton Foster, Daniel Radcliffe and more!

The American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards® announced the line up of performances for this year’s show and they look good!

I’ve seen a bunch of the shows already and there are some you won’t want to miss, The Book of Mormon being the main one.

I hope they’ll include live scenes of some of the nominated plays. I know they’ve done it in the past but I’d really like to see something from The Normal Heart. If you haven’t seen that yet, go. Now. It was one of the best things I’ve even seen on stage. I still think about it.

The show will also feature a performance from the cast of the New York Philharmonic’s Company, which will include host Neil Patrick Harris.

Can’t wait!
