Josh Groban brought down the house with a rousing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” during the “In Memoriam” tribute. Always moving, but never more so than tonight. And the entire chorus of all the Broadway shows seen tonight came out to back him magnificently.
So moved by Andre Bishop’s acceptance speech for “The King and I” as best revival of a musical.
Equally moved, if not more by Alex Sharp’s speech when he won as expected for “Curious Case of the Dog in the Night Time.”
And then SHOCKED when Michael Cerveris(!?!) won Unexpectedly for “Fun Home” for playing the gay dad. And I’m happy to say he’s been on my show many, many times. And congratulations to another Out Gay Man. Wow! That was a shock but a good, great shock!
Another shocker!!! Kelli O’Hara FINALLY won Best Actress in a Musical for “The King and I”, and was she SHOCKED!! She had no speech prepared and did “The Worm” to get herself off stage.
Then, THE BIGGEST SHOCK OF ALL!!!! “FUN HOME” WON BEST MUSICAL!!!!!!My jaw was in my lap!!!
