The Tony Awards might seem totally inscrutable to the majority of you living outside Broadway. You might well wonder, "What really makes a winner?"—especially when even a Tony voter writes, "voting for the Tonys is a dangerously haphazard affair."

At least this year you have the rare opportunity to peek behind the scenes of a major Tony campaign. Who is it but Cubby Bernstein—the James Carville of the show business set—putting the "camp" in campaign on behalf of the long-running musical Xanadu?

Click here for the whole video exposé, complete with footage of Nathan Lane, Patti LuPone, Cynthia Nixon, Duncan Sheik, and Julie White, among many other luminaries of the Great White Way. These videos have turned Broadway on its head, with the more recent episodes being especially revealing.

And your own Tony predictions are welcome here—by 6pm EST.
