I was so happy that Patti Lupone won leading actress along w/ her Gypsy cast members. I was sad to see Sunday in the Park with George didn't win anything though :( And where was Stephen Sondheim??!?!?!

For those of you heading to or living in NYC, Passing Strange was so, so good. A lot of people prefer it to In The Heights, so check it out if you can!

fleurfairy, the point of RENT is that it takes place in the early 90s . . . why would you ever update it?

I'm wondering why the actors in Rent still have to wear the 1990's clothes and hair. Can't they update it?

I loved the show last night, and seeing the two casts of Rent together was emotional but amazing.

Patrick Stewart was robbed - his Macbeth was amazing.

So happy for In the Heights, but I'm sad it will be impossible for me to get tickets now.

This was a great show. I am so happy In the Heights won. He is amazing and so is the musical. The RENT tribute was my absolute favorite part though, I have to be biased to my favorite musical. Though there could have been a little more life in La Vie Boheme.
