Here I am writing yet again about One Man Two Guvnors and its continued meteoric rise to glory. Having taken the UK by storm, the play opened to rave reviews on Broadway with US audiences embracing it with open arms.
The annual Tony’s are the Olivier’s of America, and the Awards are always a much-anticipated night of theatrical glitz and glamour, taking place this year on Sunday 10th June at the Beacon Theatre in the heart of Broadway.
The Awards are considered so important, there will be live television coverage of the event on CBS.
For all us digital fans, there will of course be a webcast streamed from the Tony’s website. I also expect there will be a great deal of Twitter activity from the red carpet arrivals onwards.
And I can’t finish without telling you that the Tony’s are named after a woman. Antoinette Perry (1888-1946), was an actress, stage director and philanthropist who was a founder of the American Theatre Wing which is an organisation dedicated to supporting excellence and education in theatre.
Bet you didn’t know that!
