For the past 70 years, the Tony’s have been the rallying point of the theatre community, be it the professionals dancing it out live every night, or the student blasting an Original Cast Recording on their bedroom speakers. This blog is for them and everyone in between.
There is indeed so much magic in the making, and the Tony nomination ceremony is only just the beginning.
Here at MITM, the goal is to give you, the online theatre community, a full-scale picture of the Tony awards. Now that doesn’t mean just reviews of the nominated Cast Recordings (although those posts will be coming soon!). There will be show history, trivia, coverage of the creative and production staff, as well current season themes.
And that brings us to the big night itself. Even if you’ve only been to the theatre once, you know just by looking at your program the amount of personnel and dedication it takes to lift a show off of the ground. The Tony’s are no different. MITM will bring you news and updates about your hosts, presenters, behind-the-scenes talent, and of course any sneak peaks that are allowed of the famous opening number!
Now, just for old times sake, let us take a look back at 2013’s opening number, starring actor and Broadway regular Neil Patrick Harris. Arguably one of the most iconic openings in the past ten years, consider this your theme music whenever you stop by the MITM page.
