Call me lazy or claim that I am not a true fan of Sierra Boggess just because I missed the TONY Awards due to the celebration of FATHER’S DAY. jeez, when did being such a good daughter become such a bad thing??
Anyways, as you have read, I missed the TONY Awards, meaning I missed the opportunity to watch Sierra Boggess SINGING again!! I have done this twice already!!! 😦 I’m so upset. AND what’s worse is that THE LITTLE MERMAID WON NOTHING!!!!!! ugh the disappointment.
That feels like a slap in the face if you ask me….but then who am I to judge?? I have not watched the other nominees, or the other shows. So I really can’t say much, other than I really wanted THE LITTLE MERMAID to win something!!
It was nominated for two awards:
Best Original Score (Music/lyrics) Written for the Theatre – which got beat by IN THE HEIGHTS.
Best Lighting Design of a Musical– which got beat by Donald Holder for SOUTH PACIFIC.

In my sole opinion, I felt that THE LITTLE MERMAID should have won it all, but I am being very VERY very single-minded here so that is not really fair now is it? But honestly, Sierra Boggess should have been nominated for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical. She really did an amazing job in the show, and I really wanted her to get acknowledged for that.
To be honest, I’m not a legit Broadway fanatic. If you have been true avid readers of my BLOG, you would understand and know the love I have for THE LITTLE MERMAID. And since it became a Broadway show, I too became a fan of both the show and Sierra Boggess. So it is safe to say that I am not a very “cultured” Broadway fan. I’m pretty much just a LITTLE MERMAID/ SIERRA BOGGESS fan 😀 So anything that Sierra Boggess plays in, you know that I will be watching that show and claiming it to be one of my many favs/M&Ms 😀
I’ll have to ask again, if anyone can lead me to the clip of Sierra’s performance from the TONY Awards, I would GREATLY appreciate your help 😀
toots and tots,
