I watched the Tony Awards last weekend from the ten minute (!) opening to the closing number by host Neil Patrick Harris. (These can be seen on YouTube) There were a few technical difficulties but, hey. My first TV set showed nothing but live broadcasts. We learned to overlook the occasional shadow of a boom mic on a leading lady’s face or the now-you-see-him-now-you-don’t stagehand retreating from the set as the camera panned. But I digress.
For me, the highlight of the show was Angela Lansbury’s win for Blithe Spirit. This great actress has been on stage, big screen and small screen for seven decades accumulating an impressive body of work. Watch her on Murder She Wrote, on Hallmark Channel, or check out Netflix for more than 60 titles.
