2009 TONY nominations are out!
leading the pack is "billy elliot: the musical" with 15 noms, including best musical, best score, best direction, best choreography, best costumes, basically, all the really good ones. hope you have already seen it because now that it has been nominated, you wont be able to get tickets for two years.
there are some other really incredible nominees, notably, dolly parton. miss parton got a nod for "9 to 5: the musical" for best original score (she wrote music and lyrics). also, i cannot not mention "american idol" star constantine maroulis who is up for a TONY for best performance by a leading actor in the musical "rock of ages." does anyone else find it incredible that consty and his silly face are up for a TONY?!
my favorite category: best costume design. i'm rooting for tim hatley's amazing production of "shrek: the musical."
