And The Winner Is….

imageThe Tony Award nominees have been announced and include a few nominations of 92Y alumni that we are keeping a close eye on. Billy Elliot the Musical was nominated for a staggering 15 awards, including the performance of David Alvarez as one “The Billys.” To supplement his dancing skills, David has been training at the 92nd Street Y School of Music in classical piano for over two years and was awarded the Recanati-Kaplan merit scholarship.

Neil Labute’s Reasons to be Pretty was nominated for Best Play, among other nominations. Labute was at 92YTribeca earlier this year to read selections from Reasons to be Pretty and offer a rare glimpse into his life, work and creative process. 92YTribeca also had the extraordinary company of Broadway’s huge Tony-nominated hit, [title of show], for a lively conversation and performance. The list of theater events we’ve hosted could go on and on: Spring Awakening, August: Osage County, Hedda Gabler

Randy Skinner, nominated for Best Choreography for White Christmas was stage director and choreograph for our Lyrics & Lyricists series in Sunny Side Up: Roaring through the Twenties with DeSylva, Brown & Henderson in April. Jerry Herman (most famous for writing Hello, Dolly and Le Cage aux Folles) received the nod for Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. Jerry has appeared in various Lyrics & Lyricists, including one that focused on his work.
