Rosie O'Donnell certainly knows what's in her best interests. In the days preceding the Tony Awards ceremony, which will be broadcast on PBS and CBS June 4 -- and which she will host -- O'Donnell will feature several Tony-nominated shows on her morning program, "The Rosie O'Donnell Show."
The schedule for the week of May 29 to June 2 runs as follows:
May 29: a performance from Jesus Christ Superstar (Tony Vincent singing "Heaven On Their Minds")
May 30: a performance from Aida
May 31: a performance from Kiss Me, Kate
June 1: a performance from Swing!
June 2: a performance from The Music Man
Kate, Music Man and Superstar are all nominated for Best Revival of a Musical. Aida is nominated for Best Score. Swing! is nominated for Best New Musical.
O'Donnell's show airs in New York on channel 7 at 10 AM. Check local listing for times and stations. --By Robert Simonson
