Tony Highlights 2015

This year I watched the Tony Award’s from across the world in Israel. I stayed up from 2 until 6 am and man, it was amazing!!

The opening number was so cute. I adored the hosts Alan Cumming and Kristin Chenoweth they were so funny!! I loved how Kristin Chenoweth dressed as ET when talking about Fun home because it sounds like phone home. I also loved how they made fun of the shows that they had been in yes Kristin Chenoweth is very popular.

 

I was cheering and screaming along with the audience and I was so happy for the winners. Even when I was rooting for a different nomination, I could say the winners definitely deserved it. I was extremely happy that Kelli Ohara won best leading actress in a musical for her role in the King and I. She got a standing ovation and 100% earned it. You go girl! And your worm dance was amazing.

 

I also think it’s really cool that both of the Lucas siblings, Jake and Sydney are in shows that won awardsare on Broadway. Jake in the King and I, revival and Sydney in Fun Home. Congratulations to both of them for being involved in such great performances.
