According to Variety, Legally Blonde came close to landing a performance spot in the Tony Awards broadcast, despite not being nominated for best musical. The rule has been only nominees for best musical and revival of a musical get to perform on the broadcast. But a move was afoot to get performances from Blonde and LoveMusik, which also was not nominated for best musical, on the show to liven things up. But that idea appears to have been nixed as a Broadway contingent contended that the TV showcase, which often means a box office boost, is part of the reward for being nominated and it should not be arbitrarily handed out.
The New York Post's Michael Riedel, of course, has a more colorful and detailed account of the dust-up.
The Tony Awards site has posted a nice video of interviews with this year's Tony nominees, including Laura Bell Bundy, Christian Borle and Jerry Mitchell.
