It is a completely different experience watching a major Award Show when it is our Acting Lions on the stage. There were 3 Acting Lions on the stage of Radio City Music Hall at various times for the 75th Tony Awards broadcast on CBS. We couldn’t be prouder of these talented actors and the quality of their work.
Nathaniel Stampley stars as Rev. Samuel Jacob Lewis in PARADISE SQUARE, which was nominated for Best Musical.
Kathy Voytko was there with the cast of THE MUSIC MAN. Kathy gained notoriety last December when she went on as Marion with only one 5-hour rehearsal when Sutton Foster became ill with Covid. The Tony awards made a special point of honoring the Stad-Bys, Swings and Understudies during the broadcast. As the theater recovers from the forced shutdown brought on by the pandemic, the shows could not go on without well trained, talented actors like Kathy ready to step in on a moment’s notice.
A big highlight was watching Jeannette Bayardelle, who was nominated as Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her work in GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY join Mare Winingham for Like a Rolling Stone and Pressing On. Watch Jeannette sing Pressing On
