The Tony Awards are currently happening, but it’s recently been announced that The Normal Heart won the coveted Best Revival of a Play! Congratulations to everyone involved, most importantly Larry Kramer. As the playwright – and outspoken activist – nothing would have been possible without him. “Our day will come,” indeed. On a related note, The Normal Heart‘s Ellen Barkin and John Benjamin Hickey won Best Featured Actress and Best Featured Actor in a Play at the Tonys tonight as well.
As an aside: it looks like Lee Pace did not attend the Tony Award ceremony. If I see any pictures pop up, I’ll add them ASAP (although I’m currently on vacation, so there may be a delay).
