Who won my Tony Pool and the iPad 2? And how did I score?

Alright, it’s that time . . . time to find out which one of you picked the most winners in my Tony pool, and which one of you is walkin’ home with an iPad 2.

But before we announce the winner, let’s see how I did.

Thankfully, I improved over last year, scoring 21 out of 26 right.  I went on a limb with a couple of my picks (Benanti over James, H2S over Anything Goes), and the surprise of the night was that there were no surprises.  So, I’ll take the B- (81%) and start prepping for next year.

How did you do?

If you remember, in addition to listing my predictions last week, I also listed what the majority of you thought would win.  You improved over last year as well . . . and you scored a stellar 24 out of 26!  I mean, do I not have the smartest readers on the planet or what?  You guys even beat Ben!  Seriously, future nominees, if you want to know if you should prepare a speech or not, look no further than the soothsayers known as the Producer’s Perspective readers.

Ok, now on to the good stuff . . . who won the iPad 2?

It came down to the tiebreaker this year.  We had 10 people guess a near perfect 25 out of 26 (!).  But the person who picked 25 winners AND came closest to guessing the length of Athol Fugard’s speech was . . .


Congratulations!  You won!  Email me to confirm your entry and collect your prize!

For the rest of you, there is always next year.  Because there are three sure things in life: death, taxes, and another Broadway season.

In fact, the new one starts . . . TONIGHT!  That’s right, it’s only fitting that Spider-Man will be the first Tony eligible show to open in the 2011-2012 season.

Want to start laying bets on whether it will be nominated or not?
