Tony's Coming!

Okey, so this is something I should be excited about. The Tony Awards! I'm kinda outdated about the recent Broadway productions though, but checking out the Tony website, I think the line-up is promising--replete with mainstream actors such as Catherine Zeta-Jones, Denzel Washington, Jude Law,to name a few. I wonder why Kristin Chenoweth isn't nominated for her performance in Promises, Promises.
