Tony Highlights / A Little Sugar

Hey everyone! It’s the bitches back from our hiatus. We’ve had a busy few weeks – one of us has returned to midwifery school while the other languishes alone in NYC, waiting for the much-anticipated return. Finally, we’re back in season. We have tickets to a VERY special show in just over a week – cannot WAIT to tell you all about that one.

In the meantime, we’re promising not one, but TWO posts. This first one is a delightful recap of all things TONY!

Our Thoughts

All very exciting stuff, of course! Obviously, Hedwig and A Gentleman’s Guide cleaned up shop. The REAL treat, if you ask me, was seeing Audra McDonald smash the Tony record and accept her award with such grace and enthusiasm. She is just a goddess of all things Broadway.

Other highlights – obviously, Sting getting a lapdance from the one and only NPH in DRAG. In fact, there’s an entire Buzzfeed article about the amazing things NPH did during his performance.

Just so many things to squeal with joy over here.

One thing we can say, though, is that the opening number was kind of a bust. We LOVE Hugh Jackman, but he didn’t bring the energy we’ve gotten over the last few years with NPH as the host. Nice to look at all night, but just not impressed.

Anyway, there’s our short recap. What did you think of the Tonys?

Picture post coming soon from us and the Kinky cast!
