Tony Night

A third post?!

It's Tony Awards night, the biggest awards night in theatre, so I figured that it's worthy of a Spotlight.

All I have to say right now is that I have a warm-fuzzy-feeling-inducing acceptance speech story prepared now for the day when I walk up onto that stage. My first summer living in New York City, and I don't have a TV, and the Tony's aren't online. So my dad makes a Skype and holds it up to the TV at home so I can see Sutton Foster dance and sing, and I realize that I have the greatest parents in the world, and without them, I don't even know what I'd do. They marveled at the puppetry of War Horse and I explained about who I wanted to win and we laughed at NPH, and he made sure I could see the Tony's even as far away as I was.

So thank you, mom. Thank you, dad. If I can grow up to be half as loving and fun as you, I will be a fulfilled woman.

Congratulations to all of the winners (I knew Mormon was gonna sweep it, and there was no way in hell Mark Rylance wasn't getting his award), and a special congratulations to my teacher Sutton Foster for her second Tony. :) We miss you at New Studio!

  1. the Tonys were streaming online, I know as I was in NYC without cable as well. I found a few different sites that most definitely were streaming live. I tried the Skype thing too but then i found 2 streaming sites completely free and legal. Sorry you didn't know that! you can live stream just about anything nowadays. also, Times Square was streaming the Tonys live lol, sorry it makes the story a little less warm and fuzzy.
