    I thought NPH did a great job as host of the Tonys last night. He did two original songs, including this opener "What If Life Were Like Theater," with several fun moments and in-jokes

    The last two times I was in New York City, I saw "Memphis" on Broadway. HIGHLY recommended.

    Sorry I missed the Tony awards (but I get at least a partial excuse for being at a theater performance during the telecast).

    Glad to see "Memphis" won for Best Musical. HIGHLY recommended.

    Looking forward to "In the Heights." I remember you talking about how much you loved it on Broadway.

    thanks. Waters was decidedly unhelpful in his interview. Other than saying it was a "very sexy show for the whole family", whatever THAT means.

    On The Daily Show the other night, John Waters was on to plug the Broadway version of "Cry Baby," which I hadn't heard anything about. Has this opened? Anyone know anything about it?
