I haven't seen a Tony winner yet that has disappointed me so I'm looking forward to checking out some musicals that did well in this year's competition like Next to Normal and Billy Elliot.

I've actually heard a lot of good things about Billy Elliot I just haven't gotten a chance to get to it. I really wanna see it though.

I haven't heard of God of Carnage though, I'll have to look that up!

God bless the tony awards.
