Cyndi Lauper, Trey Anastasio get Tony nominations
Cyndi Lauper says she walked her dog early yesterday, just in case there might be news about the Tony Awards.
The musical she co-wrote, "Kinky Boots," leads the Tony nominations with 13, including best musical. Lauper says she "still thrilled and a little stunned."
Trey Anastasio of Phish will compete with Lauper for best original score for his work on the short-lived musical "Hands on a Hardbody."
Although Bette Midler's one-woman show, "I'll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers," has gotten good reviews, it failed to get a Tony nomination.
The Tonys will be given out June 9 in New York.
