    I'm watching "The Josephine Baker Story" on television right now.... Can anyone suggest any books? I only know what I have heard from general media. I would really love to read something fact based.

    I wouldn't mind some original or reprinted marquee poster art of her performances. Any banana dance poster. I'm a fan of her's... but not so much her voice.

    Because I gave my tickets to someone who has never been... and it was their life dream to go...And I'm sort of bitter because they did not offer to pay for the tickets and I was too nice to ask!

    This is actually the most enjoyable Tony's (so far) in years ans years. Neil Patrick is a good host!

    And Liza actually sounded good. Her cd of her Bway concert was dreadful.

    I was extremely impressed with the Tony's this year. Great production numbers. Neil Patrick Harris was a great host and his final number must have been an ongoing rewrite during the show—very clever!

    Then why give them away if only to be bitter?
