Can the cast of HBO's Game of Thrones get a spot too? They could perform a quick scene or even all stand together and hum the theme song. It's only fair.

Or at least Rock of Ages! That's actually a bit more reasonable and realistic, and perfect timing! It would be a great promo in my opinion.

For one, they ( Les Miserables) are still filming the movie! Maybe on its last legs of filming, but there have been reports of even weekend filming now.

When Hugh Jackman joins the ceremonies to receive his honorary TONY ( assuming he can be spared from filming duties), maybe NPH can coax him into singing bits from any of his solos Why Isn't The Cast Of Universal Pictures Upcoming Christmas Release of the Film Version of LES MISERABLES Performing At The Tony Awards?

"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

Rock of Ageqs isn't performing because of how their producers screwed the Tonys in the law suite, and the show is bankrupt and can't afford a performance...Hairspray didn't perform in 2007 and the only reason Company performed was because NPH was in it.

The Game of Thrones cast performing would probably make my week. But what would the song be?
Jimmy, what are you doing here in the middle of the night? It's almost 9 PM!

Ooh. Maybe the Tony Awards could parody the opening credits of GAME OF THRONES, using a map of Broadway theatres. That would be so cool.

That sounds kinky. Just how many Tonys *did* the producers screw in the law suite?

"Hairspray didn't perform in 2002 and the only reason Company performed was because NPH was in it."

Hmm, I wonder why Hairspray didn't perform in the 2002 Tony Awards, over two months before it actually opened on Broadway. I mean, I'm kinda mad about that now.
