The best seat in the house before, during and after tonight's Tony Awards broadcast may be in front of your computer. The Tonys' official Web site (http://www.tonys.org) will provide live reporting from Sardi's during the show with additional live coverage of the gala supper ball afterward.

The Webcast will feature real-time audio and live captured video images. The 50th anniversary of the Tony Awards marks the debut of the organization on the World Wide Web. This site is as entertaining and well designed as a full-scale Broadway production, complete with discussion forums and historical information (including a database of nominees and winners) worthy of a standing ovation.

The award for best home page linking to other admirable theater sites goes to Jogle's Favorite Theater Related Resources (http://pscinfo.psc.edu/ ~geigel/menus/Theatre.html). Organized into 10 categories, Jogle's will get you to what interests you most with a minimum of mouse clicks. From theatrical publications to professional resources to stagecraft, this site is continually updated with the latest links.

Two of Broadway's biggest influences are also well represented online. The Stephen Sondheim Stage Web site (http://www.sondheim.com) houses a remarkable amount of information about the prolific composer and lyricist. Every Sondheim nuance is covered.

The Andrew Lloyd Webber site is just as impressive (http://www.reallyuseful.com) with more than 150 pages of information and interactivity. You can test your Lloyd Webber knowledge via a monthly trivia test, listen to music samples and search a comprehensive Lloyd Webber database. Furthermore, you can participate in exclusive message boards packed with lively and astute posts devoted solely to the renowned composer.
