Let's all play…
The 2012 TONY AWARDS DRINKING GAME!!!
(join the fun on twitter with hashtag #tonysdrinkinggame)
Take a gulp if any two women are shown wearing the same (or an eerily similar) gown
Drink if Hugh Jackman makes a surprise singing/ dancing appearance.
Drink if anyone appears onstage grossly underdressed for the occasion. A reference to, or appearance by, Frances MacDormand's jean jacket means you finish your drink! (via @AlexQSmith)
Drink every time the sound system fails during a performance (via @conjohn18)
Pour a little out for the homies, whenever a performance is given by a show that's already closed.
Drink once for any of these stars if they show up to present an award (expert players can drink any time one of them is shown onscreen):
Drink when a someone completely unaffiliated with Broadway is a presenter (via @sarrraright)
Take a sip when a first-time nominee wins, in any category.
Drink when a winner sheds visible tears during the acceptance speech
Drink any time someone claims they "didn't write a speech" because they "didn't expect to win"
Drink whenever someone says "8 shows/times a week" (via @mezosaurus)
Take a drink when a Tony is accepted by anyone still in costume from his or her previous performance, or when one is accepted by a proxy because the winner is "so sorry s/he couldn't be here tonight"
Take a drink every time someone tells their kids at home that "theyd better be in bed" or "it's time to go to bed now" (via @adamspiegz)
Drink when a commercial airs that features a nominee, performer, or song from a current Broadway show.
Take a sip for every reference to the upcoming film versions of Rock of Ages and Les Miserables
Drink anytime there is a standing ovation (via @kris_gee)
...And then get on your feet and join the crowd -- if you can stand after all this, that is!!
BONUS FOR THOSE FOLLOWING ALONG WITH MY LIVE TWEETS:
Drink when I accidentally tweet a crazy typo (since I'll be live-tweeting the Tonys AND taking part in this drinking game!).
Take a long swig if I accidentally tweet the same piece of information twice
Drink twice if any presenter, winner, or performer mentions Twitter. Finish the bottle if anyone mentions @BroadwayGirlNYC or the 2012 Tonys Drinking Game!
