We in the west don't get the CBS coverage until 8:00 pm Pacific, so we still have about 1/2 to go before the show airs here. :(

But I'll be watching :)

There needs to be another win before the show is over in less than 10 minutes.

Trey thanked Joseph Smith for writing The Book of Mormon... nice =)


Congrats Matt and Trey for winning your awards and to the amazing success of The Book of Mormon. You guys are amazing, and as a huge fan of the theatre, I hope this won't be your last show. You guys could be the next awesome Broadway duo!
