Tony voters seem to really like books that are funny: Besides ''Drowsy Chaperone,'' there's ''The Producers,'' ''Spelling Bee,'' ''Book of Mormon,'' ''Tootsie'' ...

However, in 2006, I would've given the Tony for Best Book to Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice for ''Jersey Boys.'' They did such a clever job incorporating all those Frankie Valli songs, and split this biographical jukebox show into 4 seasons (!), each told from a different character's perspective. Genius!
