NEW YORK (AP) - It's Tony Awards show time, and this year the producers apparently don't want you to breathe.
Sunday's three-hour telecast will be packed with stars and performances - more than a dozen numbers will be featured from musicals, plays and revivals - that cynics might call kitchen sink programming.
The explosion of performances is an admission that there's no clear, dying-to-see-it front-runner like last year's juggernaut, "The Book of Mormon."
In fact, the producers of the telecast have even invited the cast of "The Book of Mormon" to perform again this year. And, to top it all off, one performance won't even be nearby - the song from "Hairspray" will be performed from a cruise ship in the Caribbean Sea.
