‘The Normal Heart’ Wins Tony Award!

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).

  1. I watched the Red Carpet online and all of the Tony’s and never once got a glimpse of Lee. I thought for sure he’d be in attendance. Sad.

    It looks like he didn’t attend! But he was at an after-party (I’ll be posting pictures in just a minute).

    just so you know, this is the caption for the pictures:
    ” 65th Annual Tony Awards – “The Normal Heart” After Party
    06/12/2011 – Amsterdam Ale House
    New York, NY, United States”

    it wasn’t the tony ball or plaza hotel.

    Ah, interesting. He must have hit up two events since Broadway.com is reporting the Plaza Hotel’s Tony Ball. Thank you!

  3. broadway.com is wrong. the picture from broadway.com is from the exact same set that the picture i posted on tumblr was. i have the broadway.com picture in a less grainy quality as well, and there’s… five? four or five other photos of lee in the set from that party. lee was at one event, and one event only, and it was the normal heart afterparty at the amsterdam ale house.

    You’re amazing — thank you! I have access to that account, but the quality isn’t exactly great.
