The morning the Tony nominations are announced, phones start ringing off the hook for the happy few who get nods. As usual, Broadway.com is among the callers offering congratulations and getting responses. Here are the first reactions from 2010 Tony nominees. Congrats to all!
Nominated for Best Featured Actress in a Musical, Come Fly Away
“I think I just landed on the moon. I woke up very early, and I meditated. I was ready for whatever it might be! This means so much to me. The nominators saw in my performance something that they wanted to talk about and maybe something that touched them, and I feel strongly about the fact that this is a work that is combining dance and acting. By nominating me, they are also nominating this new genre we’ve been working on, and I am absolutely honored. It’s honoring the show as well for what it stands for, and it’s honoring Twyla [Tharp] for her vision. Come Fly Away is a bit different than other shows, and the fact that I was nominated and Twyla was nominated is such a beautiful sign of them opening their hearts to something new.”
