Disney is back at the Tony Awards, collects 7 statues

Congratulations to the talented teams at Peter & The Starcatchers and Newsies who have put Disney Theatrical back in the spotlight at the Tony Awards. The show itself was wonderfully hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, whom I hope returns for many more years of hosting.

Disney is co-producing Peter & The Starcatchers which brought home:

Best Actor in a Featured Role in a Play: Christian Borle
Best Scenic Design of Play: Donyale Werle
Best Costume Design of a Play: Paloma Young
Best Lighting Design of a Play: Jeff Croiter
Best Sound Design of a Play: Darron L. West

Newsies won awards in the two areas where everyone expected them to:

Best Choreography: Christopher Gattelli
Best Original Score written for the Theatre: Music by Alan Menken and Lyrics by Jack Feldman

For Menken, this means he’s hit the GATOR having won at least one Grammy, Annie, Tony, Oscar, and a Razzie. All he’s missing from the top awards is an Emmy, and that is only not his on a technicality since his musical Christmas Carol won for Best Score, but someone else got the credit.
