Julie Klausner Live-Blogs the 2012 Tony Awards

Happy Tonys, Vulture readers! I’m Real Housewives recapper-savant Julie Klausner and I’ll be your virtual usher tonight for the 66th annual Tony Awards tonight. Do you like my scarf? Let me show you to your seat! Oh, you’re upstairs. Tonight’s show will hopefully be a glittery swirl of fun surprises and gently met expectations, featuring veteran host (seriously! He was in ‘Nam!) and pillar of competence Neil Patrick Harris, plus an array of show nominees so diverse, it will make last year’s Book of Mormon sweep seem like it happened during far-away times, when Osama Bin Laden was freshly dead and no one had yet heard of Carly Rae Jepsen. But whether tonight’s show makes history or just ruins a poignant pause when it noisily unwraps a cough drop, I’ll be here live-blogging every last moment. So welcome, welcome, one and all! Even if you’re watching the Tonys by yourself, to quote Into the Woods, "no one is alone" on the Internet. Let's begin! (For more analysis of the awards, I will be dissecting tonight's show with SNL alum Ana Gasteyer and comedian Seth Rudetsky on a special episode of my podcast, How Was Your Week, called "How Was Your Tonys," downloadable on Tuesday morning.) You can also check out Vulture's red-carpet gallery of all the fancy-shmancy attendees here.
