75th Annual Tony Award Winners

The 2022 Tony Awards are a done deal and the show/production gets an A- (that’s four and ¾ stars) for a job well done. As for the killer opening number, that gets an A++++, as does Ariana DeBose for her glorious non-stop turn as both performer and host.

As for my 2022 predictions, I amazed myself—and certainly anyone whose followed my notoriously inaccurate picks over the years—by scoring 13 out of 17 correct! All in all, a very good year for the Tonys and yours truly!!
