  1. While Kinky Boots was quite deserving of this Tony, I believe there was a HUGE ERROR in Tony nominations this year! Jekyll & Hyde and it’s leading actor Constantine Maroulis was over looked and I’m not certain as to why? The performace by Maroulis was second to none! An outstanding portrayal of Dr. Henry Jekyll played w/ such passion. As Edward Hyde, Maroulis added a new edgy approach that was simply outstanding and a crowd pleaser at each and every performance I attended! This show was brilliantly cast with Deborah Cox (a grammy award nom) and the delightful, angelic voice of Teal Wicks! This show was simply amazing and VERY DESERVING OF A TONY NOM. (which is why I felt compelled to comment) To “The Cast and Crew” at Jekyll & Hyde and to the talented Frank Wildhorn who re-wrote many songs to match the amazing voices of Maroulis and Cox, THANKS FOR A GREAT SHOW and for providing so many with a stellar CD of this new and exciting musical! My only hope is that someone is smart enough to make a DVD of this show so that more people could appreciate Great Acting & this TALENTED CAST!
