Yay to Avenue Q...  
...for winning this year's Tony for Best Musical! :D For once a show proved that it didn't need BIG name stars or a HUGE budget to win. :) I even started to tear when they announced them as the winners - even though I already knew (hours before) that they had won. Seeing John Tartaglia jump up in joy and seeing the entire cast run up on stage to hug each other was such a touching moment!

I loved their performance - except that I agree with Cristin, I was really upset with the camera crew too - WHY close in so tight on the shot and cut both Stephanie AND John out of the picture in their respective scenes? It was SO unnecessary - and really annoying. I thought it was cute how they censored Kate Monster, though - Mark had wondered what they were going to do with that line of the song. :)

After seeing the little snippet of their performance, I can't wait to see "Assassins!!!" The only complaint that I had is that their performance was way too short - I wish they would've performed something like "Another National Anthem" so we could get a better glimpse of each of the cast members rather than the couple of seconds of each that we got.

I couldn't be more excited to go on my trip to NYC in two weeks! I can't wait to see Avenue Q again with the original cast (before their contracts expire) and see "Assassins"!! :) The next two weeks can't go by fast enough!

No table down in front for me. :( I'm in the Mezz - but I'm just happy that I'll get to see it. For a while I thought it would end before I got the chance to see it (which would be a HUGE crime).

"Assassins" has ALWAYS been a favorite show of mine - but just by watching the (too short!!) Tony performance, I can tell that this cast and this production is something pretty special. :) I can't wait!!
