Congratulations to the several Northwestern alumni who either won awards at last night's Tony Awards or worked on award-winning shows. Here are the Wildcats that we know are celebrating this morning:
Heather Headley ’97 stars as Shug Avery in The Color Purple, which won for Best Revival of a Musical.
Kaitlin Fine ’09 (assistant company manager) and Jason Crystal ’06 (associate sound design) currently work as crewmembers on Hamilton. Ian Weinberger ’09, a NUMB alum, has previously served as musical conductor for the show.
The Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey, where Mark Hoebee ’82 serves as producing artistic director, won for Best Regional Theater.
Additionally, Marshall W. Mason ’61 and Sheldon Harnick ’49 received lifetime achievement awards.
And while he didn't win, Adam Kantor '08 performed as Motel during a number from Fiddler on the Roof. Check him out (he's the one getting married). Jeff Blumenkrantz ’86, meanwhile, performed with the cast of Bright Star.
If we missed any other alumni wins from last night, please let us know.
