Sherie Rene Scott: Veggie Juice, Muffins, and, Oh Right, Those Tony Award Nominations

Sherie Rene Scott

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!

Sherie Rene Scott
Nominated for Best Actress in a Musical and Best Book, Everyday Rapture

“I usually wake up early on [nominations day], but this morning I just didn’t. My husband Kurt came in and woke me up saying, ‘Congratulations! Now get up, you have phone calls to make!’ Oh, and he brought me a veggie juice from Juice Generation and a soy protein muffin, so that’s how I’m celebrating. We’re living the big time. [Laughs.] There’s a yin and yang to [a nomination]. This sort of thing makes the job easier to do, and it makes the people around me happier! It feels great that [Dick Scanlan] and I are nominated for the book together, because I really believe in this show and loved the writing process so much. It means everything, but at the same time you have to look at what it’s really about—we’re not athletes. There’s no finish line or losers in this art form. So the awards are more a way of getting people involved in Broadway. Once you look at it that way, and remember the whole competition aspect of it is ridiculous and more an excuse to throw a great party, then you can enjoy it. I can force myself to put on a dress for that!”
