    2007-Raul Esparza, “Company” (I love David Hyde Pierce but this was not a contest)

    2000: Boyd Gaines, “Contact”

    2001: Gary Beach, “The Producers”

    2002: Shuler Hensley, “Oklahoma!” (the best Jud Fry….definitive)

    2003: Dick Latessa, “Hairspray” (kind of a weak list)

    2004: This is tough, but Raul Esparza, “Taboo”

    2003: Jane Krakowski, “Nine”

    2004: Anika Noni Rose, “Caroline, Or Change” (I’m sorry but where was Ann Harada from “Avenue Q” or Stephanie J. Block from “The Boy From Oz?! If Ann Harada made it in, she would have had my vote!)

    2005: This category is killer! Based on her facial expressions and goofy riffing and campiness, Sara Ramirez in “Spamalot” was comedic gold! (I still think the show didn’t deserve the Tony and was the weakest of the four)

    2006: Beth Leavel, “The Drowsy Chaperone”

    2007: Mary Louise Wilson, “Grey Gardens” (Orfeh was wonderful as well)

    2008: Laura Benanti, “Gypsy”

    2009: Karen Olivo, “West Side Story” (though had Susan Blackwell been nominated for “title of show”, she would have had my vote)

    2010: Katie Finneran, “Promises, Promises”

    2011: Nikki M. James, “The Book of Mormon” (though I do have to say that Benanti did an AMAZING job with the song “Model Behavior” in “Women on the Verge….” and LuPone gave one of her best performances ever singing “Invisible” in the same show)

    Book, Score, and the plays to come later….

    You are my favorite person on the board for these two choices. 

     

    I never got Billy Elliot. It was so cheesy and I was bored by it. Next to Normal was amazing. I can see how they went for Memphis though. Rock musicals tend not to win Tonys since the voters are old geezers who like throwbacks.

     

    And I should be your favorite person anyway.

    Slightly off topic. I just finished watching “Memphis” on Netflix. Granted, stage is meant to be seen on stage but I was immensely underwhelmed. I mean, I knew 2010 was a low year for original musicals but man alive, how’d that win? Even the finale (‘Steal Your Rock and Roll’) played better during the Tony broadcast. I kinda wished I didn’t watch it on Netflix and forked over rush tickets or something now. Whoever edited this film version did an godawful job.

    Lesson learned.

    Ummm, totally see why Chad Kimball had to bail due to his nervous system being shot if night in and night out he was playing Huey like this neurotic/ticky fella.

    Memphis is a pretty poorly written show.  However, don’t kill me, but I had a great time haha.  Granted, I saw it for free during it’s second preview.  If I had dropped a hundred bucks for it I probably wouldn’t have the same opinion.  The energy of the show isn’t captured in the recorded version, though.  It’s much much more fun live.  And I don’t know why they always do the finale when then perform on television or at events.  There are other numbers that are much better.

    It only won the Tony because 2010 was seriously one of the worst years Broadway had ever had.  Awful.

    And people have very strong opinions about Chad Kimball’s performance.  Personally, I thought he was fantastic and created one of the most unique, interesting leading man characters I’ve ever seen in a new musical.

    You know the year in musicals is terrible when Million Dollar Quartet gets nominated for Best Musical.

    Chad Kimball’s accent was PAINFUL.. It was so overdone. I enjoyed Memphis quite a bit, I have no problem with it being nominated for the Tonys. Its the safe choice, think The King’s Speech, absolutely nothing revelatory with generic writing and (mostly) good acting. Fela!, even with its flaws of too much style over substance, was at least trying to bring something unique to Broadway that season.
