Tony Awards red carpet

Last night I was in NYC and went to check out the red carpet at the Tony Awards at Radio City. Neil Patrick Harris hosted the awards. Billy Elliot, God of Carnage and Next to Normal were some of the big winners of the night.

My first sighting was Dolly Parton, who was there for 9 to 5. She looked like a bright, white light! God bless her. Next I saw Kevin Spacey, Jeff Daniels and James Gandolfini (who stars in God of Carnage). Then Anne Hathaway arrived in a fabulous black Oscar de la Renta dress and bright red heels. She’s going to star in NY Public Theater’s open-air production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night as Viola running from June 10 to July 12.

Allison Janney, who currently in 9 to 5, was there in a pretty purple dress. The lovely Angela Lansbury also walked the red carpet briefly. She won the Best Featured Actress Tony for Blithe Spirit – her 5th Tony! John Stamos was there looking very handsome. Will Ferrell, Oliver Platt, Bebe Neuwirth, Stockard Channing and Jane Fonda also made appearances. Frankie Valli from The Four Seasons was there with the guy who plays him in Jersey Boys.

The musical Rock of Ages was well represented on the red carpet with star Constantine Maroulis and Poison. Bret Michaels later ran into the set while performing and was knocked backward. I think his cowboy hat may be impairing his vision!
