Take II: And the winner of the Tony Pool and the iPhone is . . .
While grading your tests, two things happened: 1) I found our winners, and 2) I remembered why I never wanted to be a teacher. And it wasn’t just because my high school English teacher told me that he got so stressed teaching that he used to think of students as he chopped wood after school . . . and he didn’t even have a fireplace.
Ok, enough of that awkward intro, here are the winners of the first annual Producer’s Perspective Tony Pool!
GRAND PRIZE: The new (say it with me) iPhone!
Dial it up, MARYBETH IHLE, and get ready to switch to AT&T because you won! And no tie breaker necessary!
1ST PRIZE: $50 to eat at Angus, where after a few Blue Hawaiis, all the Tony losers will be giving the speeches they never got to give.
Angus changed up his menu recently (I’m starting a petition to bring back the sirloin steak salad), and ERICA RYAN will be eating for free soon enough (and signing my petition soon after).
2ND PRIZE: 2 Books off the PP recommended list and a 4 pack of Red Bull
Shotgun that Producer juice so you can stay up all night reading, LUCY YU, because your hot Tony pickin’ just slid you into the money.
Thanks to the rest of you for playing. This was the first annual PPP, which means they’ll be one next year too, giving all of you who picked Xanadu to win another shot (Sorry, Cubby, that means you too).
And can you imagine what the iPhone will be like next year?
My portion of this blog is over. Now, I’m turning it over to you.
I want to know what YOU thought about the Tonys! Comment away below, just end your comment with a DidHeLikeIt-type thumbs up, down or mixed.
Because whether or not the actual ratings were up or down last night, it’s your ratings that I’m much more interested in.
Ok, we are back with a capital T. Sunday’s T…
Here’s what TheaterMakers were talking about this week . ….
