"Live from the Caribbean" ... Need we say more? Actor-playwright Harvey Fierstein appeared onstage clad in a puffy flotation device to announce Royal Caribbean International's Oasis of the Seas cast of "Hairspray," which performed a number live from a cruise ship at sea. "Please welcome them," Fierstein said in a thick Brooklyn accent, "for the first time ever at the Tonys -- or anywhere else for that matter!" Later, host Neil Patrick Harris commented: "I've just gotten terrible news that the cast of 'Hairspray' has been taken over by pirates."
