You may know this by now, but I am proud to be considered a musical theatre nerd.
I was enrolled in a musical theatre program in High School, where I was in at least 2 musical productions every year (but I won’t get into that right now).
So as any musical theatre nerd would agree, last night’s Tony Awards were exciting for me!
It was amazing to see some Canadian representation, with the musical “Come From Away” being nominated for many awards and WINNING best director of a musical (Christopher Ashley).
For me, the two major awards of the night are Best Musical and Best Play! And while I would have loved to see “Come From Away” take home Best Musical, the actual winner was still very deserving! Best Musical went to “Dear Evan Hansen”, while “Oslo” took home Best Play!
What did you think of the 2017 Tony Awards and the winners? Let me know!
