The Tony Award winners were announced/revealed last night and while its a show that I generally enjoy watching I wasn’t able to do so this year because the network decided to air the awards broadcast on the Paramount+ streaming service while a celebratory concert mixed with some announcements would air in tandem on the public network. Though I had a subscription to Paramount+ for a short time based on a discounted rate, I let it lapse since I have Netflix, Disney+ and HBO Max to contend with and don’t need it but I digress. I did my best to keep up with the filtering in announcements but ended up waiting for this morning to share the news with you. Let’s go.
