I was right in my predictions for each of the musical categories but failed in nearly all of play categories. I still think it's looking like a big night for The Drowsy Chaperone, Sweeney Todd and The History Boys. Now for the big awards of the evening, which will come shortly.
The 60th Tony Awards will be telecast at 8 pm EDT, Sunday, June 11 on CBS.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
