Bernadette in Gypsy and Sunday Sunday for Best Musical Sunday for Best Score. Kelli O'Hara over Sara Ramirez (Although I still loved Sara, Kelli's role was more difficult and she deserved it more) Patti Lupone for Sweeney Piazza as Best Musical Anyone besides Idina (Donna Murphy or Kristin deserved it, But it was Tonya's Tony) West Side Story over the Music Man Carolee for Parade Antonio Banderas for Nine or BSM for Man of La Mancha over Harvey Tammy Blanc
I would love to see Sutton's take on Elizabeth but Megan would be wonderful also

omg I love this show and I love both Julia and Michael-two of my favorite performers and both would be incredible in those roles. Although it would be hard to fill Carolee's shoes-but if anyone could do it-it would be Julia

I agree 100% with the casting of young actors for the WSS revival. Despite what many people think, there are some incredibly talented young actors out there. People are just used to seeing really bad High School productions with miscast kids trying to play Mamma Rose or Sweeney Todd (Roles that should never be played by anyone under 40). However, West Side Story's characters are relatable to kids and I think that young people would do an incredible job with the show.
re: Eden Espinosa as Evita?? Sep 4

I'm not an expert on Evita-but isnt Eva supposed to age during the show? Doesnt she start out really young and get older? So Eden's age wouldnt really hold her back. I personally would love to hear Alice Ripley or Lisa Brescia sing those songs.

I'm not really a fan of Patti-but she would be a really good Rose. I could see her playing the fierce and determined side of Rose very well. As someone said earlier-her voice is very similar to Ethel Merman's who the role was written for.
I would LOVE for them to wait a few years and have Audra play Rose instead. I would pay so much money to see Audra perform "Rose's Turn"

"Ken Page...this man should have won one along time ago. Terrence Mann Brent Barret Andre De Shields Frances Ruffelle Judy Kuhn Sandy Duncan Sheryl Lee Ralph Hugh Panaro Susan Egan Steve Blanchard Linda Eder Roger Bart Anthony Rapp Rebecca Luker "
Frances Ruffelle won for Les Miserables and Roger Bart won for You're a Good Man Charlie Brown

I usually hate it when people complain about how Broadway has gone downhill lately-but in this case I agree. I understand having to miss a few shows because of illness, but whatever happened to "the show must go on"? Everyone knew Ethel Merman as a powerhouse who never missed shows. (I'm not an expert on the subject-but I think the only time she missed shows was during Gypsy due to vocal problems from the difficulty of that role) Luckily we do still have some performers like that (Harvey Fierste

Julie Andrews was the only nomination from Victor Victoria but she tried to refuse her nomination because she felt the show deserved more nominations. She was stil nominated, but didnt win. I have heard a lot of people say that she would of won over Donna Murphy that year if she hadnt tried to refuse the nomination.
Emcee-While there probably isnt a chance of her winning a Tony for a musical, maybe there is a chance of her doing a straight play.

Ok I know she isn't know for her Broadway acting-but she has done a few Broadway shows and some movies based on plays. But Meryl Streep can transform into anything and anyone. She has played a holocaust survivor, a woman going through a divorce, a morman mother and ethel rosenburg just to name a few. And in every movie she is so convincing as every role she plays. I wish she would come back to Broadway because I'm sure she would be entrancing to watch live
