Tony Awards (CBS - Sunday, 8pm) - Those of us who care (sorry, CBS, that we aren't larger in number!) will be avidly watching.
And no matter how the awards turn out, the following tight races will at least provide some edge-of-your-seat drama:
Musical: Newsies, the feel-good offering from Disney Theatrical Productions, is the front-runner, but Once seems to be the pick of most critics (including me). Can the Irish barroom musical with the indie Irish vibe notch a victory over its more mainstream rival?
Play: Clybourne Park is likely to add a Tony to an awards haul that includes a Pulitzer Prize, though Other Desert Cities has its share of partisans who relish the play's champagne wit and verbal sparkle.
