If reruns of Smash aren't enough to satisfy your need for show tunes, the Tony Awards are finally here. Tune in to get your Broadway fix without having to witness Megan Hilty crying.
Tonight is quite possibly the best night of TV ever for theater junkies like myself. Not only are the Tony Awards airing (on CBS at 8 PM) with Neil Patrick Harris (who was amazing in Broadway's Assassins a few years ago) hosting, but BBC America has a three hour lineup of musical wonderment that makes me want to sing out loud. They are starting the night off with the two hour finale of Any Dream Will Do, which is the American Idol-y series that is looking for a guy to take on the lead role in Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat on the West End. Well, no spoilers here, but this series aired in the UK ages ago, so the winner has already come and gone from the show (not that I looked just in case I wanted to take a trip across the pond just to see the winner in the show or anything totally ridiculous like that), but it has still been remarkably entertaining to watch.
