a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Laurie Metcalf wins her second Tony two years in a row. This time for play “B” in “Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women.”

This was bookend by a number from “Mean Girls” which looked cheap and rather stupid, but it’s about high schoolers…so what do you want?

Then a rousing trio of songs from “My Fair Lady.” Lauren Ambrose sang “Rain in Spain” and “I Could’ve Danced All Night” in loverly, unexpected soprano. I think she’s the winner in this category for which she is nominated. Norbert Leo Butz then leads a strutting chorus of drag queen(?) cockneys in “Get Me to the Church on Time.”

Bruce Springsteen wins a special Tony. Dignified and brief acceptance speech.

Lindsey Mendes wins Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her performance as Carrie Pipperidge in “Carousel.”
