At last night’s Tony Awards, ably hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, some of the stars cancelled TV shows were on hand to sing a song together. Interestingly all of the them had been fired by NBC and the Tonys were on CBS.
Andrew Rannells was a big hit in The Book of Mormon but The New Normal was cancelled (he still has a role on Girls on HBO). Megan Hilty starred in NBC’s Broadway-based Smash series. And finally, Laura Benanti won a Tony for her role in Gypsy but neither of her shows — The Playboy Club or Go On — saw a second season.
