Stating the Obvious Blogging - Session 4: Award Show Edition

Listening to the Tony Awards on tape delay, it occurs to me that the Tonys seems to be about the most entertaining of the awards shows. Perhaps theatre people are simply more entertaining than other entertainers. Or maybe it's that theatre people are used to performing live in front of an actual audience. Or maybe this isn't so obvious after all?

Added: It also helps that the "production numbers" are simply scenes lifted from currently running shows, and that the reason they're being shown is because they're actually good. Incidentally, Audra McDonald has great legs. (And I shouldn't have to tell you that she's enormously talented otherwise.)
