Well, The Book of Mormon got the most nominations, and every single musical number in that show is a problem for the Tony censors – whether it's dialogue, or even the idea of a song – like, religion. They're struggling right now to see what number they CAN put in the show. If it doesn't get by the censors in the end, I can see myself announcing, 'Please stand by for two minutes while we black out.' It should be the edgiest Tonys for a while. And that's a good thing. Let's shake it up!
