Frank is absolutely brutal on the Red Carpet. Is there an understudy who can take over?

Lots of Tony threads going around, so I'll ask this question here:

I am overseas and unfortunately won't be able to watch the broadcast tonight. I've looked at the Tony Awards International Viewing page and the country I'm in isn't there, plus the 9 hour time difference won't allow me to watch via a US site at a reasonable time. Anyone have tips as to how to watch the show sometime this week? Is the full show typically posted somewhere (CBS or otherwise) following the broadcast, and if so, where? Any tips would be appreciated!

Is there any way to shut down that screeching annoying woman from BWW?

The mute button works.

Where can we view the preshow awards-- I thought that's what the CBS feed would give us, but no-- just more inept interviews.

Maybe I can't take a Disney show that was clearly put on Broadway to make Disney more money and not to creatively achieve anything new seriously...

Surely, everyone can see the irony in someone shilling for a Disney product while claiming that they cannot take a Nickelodeon one seriously.

Gee, all this time I thought I adored The Band’s Visit because it uses beautiful music and exquisite performances to tell stories about the need for human connection - and about the power of music to bring together people of different cultures and languages. But apparently I only liked it because I’m boring and want to be cool! *shrugs*

But now I fit in with the critics!  Mission accomplished.

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Have they not handed out any of the technical awards yet? I keep refreshing and nothing. It’s 7:30 already!

Walt Disney himself is leaving hate comments for one of his competitors on a Broadway message board.
