Whoppie was a good host and it was entertaining. Of course I lived for watching the musical sequences. I also liked all my stars who were there supporting each other. I LOVE LOVE LOVED! seeing the casts of Rent Old and New there to see the show’s final TONY appearance (until maybe a revival *that kinda scares me*). Having Anthony Rapp introduce it was perfect and the Original Casts word’s were beautiful * I cried a bit*. While it was short, it was sweet.

All in all, Another Great Night at the Tony’s. While Xanadu walked away empty handed, I must say that I knew it was going to happen, even though I cheered for them. Can’t wait for next year.


We are still searching for the next Elle Woods. We are now down to 8 girls. The one EVERYONE and I mean that EVERYONE wanted to go home tonight (Cassie S.) Is still there. That worries me a lot.  I know that Bernie Tesley has everything under control, but you have to ask yourself; “What are the judges looking for?” Honestly? She was horrible. Ugh. Lauren is still on and I think she has great potential. I was VERY VERY impressed with Natalie tonight who really stepped up her game.

The Paul Canaan quote of the night is “That’s a HIT! *hit said in a high pitch voice and a knee slap*”

I really love him because he’s great. He had a lot of great quotes tonight but I think that this was the one I liked the best. Simply because it is totally Paul.

I really shouldn’t watch this show. I hate when they try to pick broadway stars from reality shows. Grease: You’re the One that I Want” was horrible! But I am watching this because I love the show and I really need to see who is replacing Laura Bell, because she has BIG shoes to fill. My sister and I watch it together. It’s like the only thing we can bond with because she’s not a big broadway fan, but I took her to see this show for her christmas gift and well we fell in love. Me moreso with Christian Borle then anything else, but Jerry Mitchell is great and does great work and the entire cast is wonderful. 

So yeah, there are my thoughts from this week. I gotta get to bed, after all my rehearsing tomorrow, I am taking my little cousin to see Kong Fu Panda. Should be fun!
