2014 TONY Award Winners


 
HGSG went to NYC last week and spent most of our vacation on Broadway seeing shows and meeting the casts at the stage doors. In one week, we met Roy Trenneman, Harry Potter, Dexter, Harry Osborn, and Walter White! So naturally we were pretty much glued to the Tony Awards broadcast last night to rooting for our now “good friends.” Congrats and broken legs to all of this year’s winners!

  1. Jackman said he’d rather do a musical than do X-Men. Now that he might retire from Wolverine maybe he’ll get one of these bad boys. I hope you guys enjoy(ed) your vacation!
