As the Tony Awards loom on the horizon, what's a Broadway obsessive to do? Dig into the past, of course, to relive some of the most memorable moments from past telecasts. We've already compiled a list of the best performances by Best Musical nominees over the years—the Tonys' greatest hits. Now we turn our attention to the B-sides and rarities: a new video each day, all celebrating the quirkier side of the Tonys—the good, the bad and the campy.

  • Theater
  • Musicals

Presenters make mistakes all the time, of course, but sometimes a flub is so uncanny, so inexplicable, so jaw-droppingly weird that it seems to exit the realm of error entirely to inhabit a rarefied world of perfect absurdist art. So it is with Robert Goulet.

Musical theater doesn't get better than Michael Jeter's breathtakingly joyful and soulful performance in this 1990 number from Grand Hotel, and acceptance speeches don't get more touching than Jeter's either.
