Inside The Tony Awards

Of course, every year we have the clash of LA Pride and the Tony Awards.  This year, the Tonys won out.  While there wasn’t much gossip to report, let me congratulate Mart Crowley for winning Best Revival of a Play for his Boys in the Band – a play that basically wouldn’t have been written were it not for Natalie Wood…but that’s another story for another time.  In accepting her Isabelle Stevenson Tony Award for Humanitarian Efforts, our beloved Judith Light made a point of acknowledging us.  “It has long been my privilege to support the HIV/AIDS and the LGBTQ+ communities, so to be honored in this way tonight is extremely humbling.”  And speaking of our community, is it just me or was LaTanya Richardson Jackson wearing a gay pride coat?  Or was she auditioning for a touring company of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat?  Speaking of clothes, bravo to my dear friend, the amazingly talented Bob Mackie for Best Costumes for The Cher Show!
