Even though I'm not an avid watcher or awards shows, the fact that the adorable Neil Patrick Harris is again hosting this year's Tonys is a particularly tempting factor. RAPA's East End Theatre (727 E. Main St.) will host a Tony fundraiser, including a live screening of the Tony Awards, on Sunday, June 9. The evening begins at 7 p.m. and will feature wine and beer, a silent auction, hors d'oeuvres, and special performances by RAPA's Roc City Singers. Bring friends and bicker over the Broadway plays and musicals that will or will not take home a Tony. "The Anarchist" or "Breakfast at Tiffany's?" "Matilda" or "Motown"?
You'll recognize stars from the silver screen in the nominee line-up. Will the Tony go to Scar-Jo or Pacino? Or will they favor Alan Cumming's ambitious turn as almost every character in "Macbeth"? In addition, you'll get to review the gorgeous costumes, set designs, and orchestrations that went into the productions. Tickets for the event cost $45 or $80 for a couple, and registration is required. For more information, call 851-1997 or visit rapatheatre.org.
