In this week leading up to the Tony Awards CBS affiliates have the option to air a special concert that was shot earlier in the month highlighting the musicals nominated (except for Pal Joey, which I guess was left out because it finished its limited run a few months ago). The concert, which also showcases the nominated plays as well as pays tribute to the entire season, aired here last night and is quite good.
Here are my two favorite clips from the show. It should be no surprise that they come from the last two Tony Awards Geek Outs that I’ve done.
Here is Next to Normal‘s Tony nominees Jennifer Damiano and Alice Ripley along with Aaron Tveit performing “Superboy and the Invisible Girl.”
Next, here is Tony nominee Gavin Creel with members of the cast of Hair performing “Where Do I Go?”

And…while I’m doing more clips. I just found out that I missed Alice Ripley on The View this past Wednesday where she sang “I Miss The Mountains.”
