One onlooker recalls:

Another first win this evening, alongside a record-breaking SIXth!

While a lot of the focus of the 2012 Tony Awards goes to the actors for their performances and their respected nominated pieces, the accolade for Best Direction of a Musical went to first-timer John Tiffany for his gorgeous work on Once!

However, right after, Mike Nichols won his sixth award for Best Direction of a Play for his equally brilliant work on the revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman!

Amazing amazing!

Perez Reviews: Nice Work If You Can Get It

A feelgood fun time! That's the best way to describe the crowd-pleasing new musical Nice Work If You Can Get It, starring the feelgood and crowd-pleasing Matthew Broderick!

The show is a new comedic piece based on songs from the Gershwins ample catalog, and it was skillfully written by Joe DiPietro.

Kathleen Marshall did a fine job in directing the show. Safe but satisfying!

Broderick did a superb job of playing an adult Ferris Bueller. And it was so fun to watch him having so much fun on stage. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for Kelli O'Hara, who is very talented but very miscast in her role as the female love interest.

Unfortunately, Sutton Foster was not available. SHE would have been perfect in that role!

O'Hara failed to bring a twinkle in her eye and a dazzle in her step. Instead of Nice Work, she would be much better suited to play Maria in a revival of The Sound Of Music!

Robyn Hurder, on the other hand, had a small role but made THE MOST of it and made us wish she played Broderick's main counterpart instead!

Judy Kaye and Michael McGrath were also great. But the real breakout star of the show and our favorite performance easily was Jennifer Laura Thompson, who was sooooo fun! She reminded us a lot of Kristin Chenoweth! It was no surprise, then, when we read in our Playbill that Thompson was the first to replace Cheno in Wicked on Broadway.

We have instantly fallen in love with Jennifer Laura Thompson! And we also are excited to see what Robyn Hurder does next!

Oh, and Sound Of Music with Kelli O'Hara is a really good idea, if we do say so ourselves! Ha
