Good Old Tony

So I know I've been selling The Tony Awards a lot lately, but you know, I'd like it to have more than the 12 viewers it usually gets. (So Watch Sunday on CBS at 8pm, or at least long enough to see the performances from Company and Spring Awakening)

Here are some clips (in no particular order) that I loved from previous years. Doesn't necessarily mean I love the show, or that I even saw the musical it was from, but here are some memorable Tony performances that I find myself wanting to watch over again.

Spamalot - "Find Your Grail", with Sara Ramirez (now Callie on Grey's Anatomy. And yeah. Boy she can SING!) and David Hyde Pierce, Christopher Seiber, Hank Azaria, Tim Curry and company. From the 2005 Tony Awards.

Jersey Boys - Medley, with John Lloyd Young, Daniel Reichard, Christian Hoff and company.From the 2006 Tony Awards.

Avenue Q - "The Avenue Q Theme" and "What Do You Do With A BA In English?" - John Tartaglia and company. From the 2004 Tony Awards.

You're A Good Man Charlie Brown - "My New Philosophy" - Kristin Chenowith, Anthony Rapp, B.D. Wong and company. From the 2000 Tony Awards.

Bring In Da Noise, Bring In Da Funk - With Savion Glover and company from the 1997 Tony Awards.

Urinetown - "Run Freedom Run" With Hunter Foster and company from the 2002 Tony Awards

Ragtime - "Prologue" - With Marin Mazzie, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Audra McDonald and company. From the 1998 Tony Awards.

The Full Monty - "Let It Go" - With Patrick Wilson and company from the 2001 Tony Awards.

Rent - "La Vie Boheme" - With Adam Pascal, Anthony Rapp, Idina Menzel, Taye Diggs, Jesse L. Martin and company. From the 1996 Tony Awards.

Hey, thanks for posting these! Some are especially awesome. (Yay, Assassins!) I have a wedding to go to Sunday night, and won't be able to watch until I get home Monday night, so I'm going to be in a media blackout zone Monday to avoid finding out who wins before I get a chance to watch on my DVR. :)

Oh, and to add...isn't that little girl in the Ragtime clip the girl from Spring Awakening? Or am I thinking of a different girl?

Oh yeah. I forgot to mention that. It's Lea Michelle! She was Little Girl in Ragtime way back when! Now in Spring Awakening!
