David Hyde Pierce introduces Best Direction in a Musical

Rob Ashford -
Kathleen Marshall - Anything Goes
Casey Nicholaw and Trey Parker - Book of Mormon
Susan Stroman - Scottsboro Boys

Trey Parker looks like he really wants to get in there and thank folks, but . There we go... He gets to speak and thanks the South Park fans.

Maryanne Elliot and Tom Morris - War Horse
JOel Grey & George C Wolfe - Normal Heart
Anna G. Shapiro - Mother%^&&^ with a Hat
Daniel Sullivan - Merchant of Venice

Maryanne Elliott and Tom Morris won for War Horse. Haven't seen it yet, even though it's happening a mere three blocks away at Lincoln Center. I've heard the story is a bit lacking (based on a children's book?), but the show itself is visually amazing. The puppetry alone is grand. And, I liked how they thanked each others significant others.
