KaGina Wilhelm Actress – Get Ready for the Tonys
The Tony Award ceremony will air Sunday night at 8 p.m. on CBS. Before the awards are handed out, Linda Winer of newsday.com looked at several magic moments from this year on Broadway.
Among the actress-related highlights was the confrontation between Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots in “Mary Stuart.”
The powerful meeting reveals both the courage and insecurity in both queens.
Lauren Ambrose received plaudits for her performance in “Exit the King.” In it, she believes that she “love the life back into” Geoffrey Rush’s titular king.
Winer feels Kristin Scott Thomas has been wrongly overlooked for her work in the revival of “The Seagull.”
Pia Glenn’s work in Will Ferrell’s “You’re Welcome, America, A Final Night with George W. Bush” also deserves some appreciation.
Glenn received the Astaire Award for best female dancer for her turn as the disco-dancing Condoleezza Rice.
Finally, Winer highlights Angela Lansbury’s work as Madame Arcati in the revival of “Blithe Spirit.” Lansbury is nominated for a Tony for this work. Tomorrow we’ll see if she wins!
