Road To The Tonys

The Early Show, once again, offered its "Road To The Tony Awards" series with live performances by this year's top Broadway shows.

"Avenue Q" kicked it off with puppets performing the song "The More You Ruv Someone."

Correspondent Melinda Murphy also got a chance to talk to Tony nominee Hugh Jackman, about "The Boy From Oz." (Jackman later won the Tony.)

On Saturday, June 5, Tony nominated stars Donna Murphy and Jennifer Westfeldt performed "Ohio" from the five-time Tony award nominated show, "Wonderful Town."

Jackman hosted the awards ceremony on June 6. And on June 8, The Early Show offered a wrap up of the awards.

Here is a list of shows featured during last year's series:

  • "Nine" with performances by Antonio Banderas, Mary Stuart Masterson, and Jane Krakowski.
  • "Hairspray" Cast included Marissa Jaret Winokur (Tracy Turnblad) and Corey Reynolds (Seaweed J. Stubb)
  • "A Year With Frog And Toad" with Jay Goede and Mark Linn-Baker, who performed "Getta Load Of Toad."
