        I got emotional in the end when James finally got therespect admiration and gratitude from the audience.
        He is Broadway's greatest ambassador!
        People need to see his talent and encouragement of theater inspiring so many. If hed loseweight he'd be on every magazine cover and tv show but, image is everything in this business and he is overlooked and under-rated.
        His smile lights up a room.

                                  Lately I’ve been very busy blogging about every subject
                                  under the sun, I know to one who is not one, blogging can seem like taking only
                                  a few minutes to post, in reality that is all it takes, not the weeks of prep,
                                  research and thought that govern the most successful postings. So, its little
                                  wonder I fell a little behind my DVR viewing from which I glean most of my posted
                                  subjects. Finally, I got caught up to the CBS News Sunday Morning program to the
                                  day of the Tony awards, that featured most subjects that was flavored with most
                                  aspects of “show business”, like, acting, singing, wigging. make-up, dancing,
                                  music and lyrics, directing, lighting, costuming, staging, writing, book
                                  adaptation, and most importantly, “journalism”…

                                        Tony Awards... WHO CARES!!! As a guy who takes in at least five shows a year... WHO CARES ABOUT ACTORS VOTING AWARDS FOR THEMSELVES!?! Worse that the Oscars because it’s a much smaller audience.

                                        How is this different from tech gurus voting themselves awards at the end of every year?

                                        Or food services? Or Uber? Or Porn “stars”?
