Well, my loyal and faithful readers and followers, take a deep breath and then get ready to read your favorite blogger's predictions for tonight’s TONY AWARDS, from Radio City, carried on CBS beginning at 8:00pm.
The program will be emceed by Neil Patrick Harris for the 4th time. I am confident he will do an excellent job with a lot of lighthearted material and some insider jokes, too.
The opening number will feature characters and songs from every musical, old and new, currently on Broadway.
Frankly, IMHO the success of the evening will depend largely on this number.
Anyhow ... the predictions are who Billi Pod thinks will win and not who should win, or who he would like to win.
So ... here they are ... tada ...
