Promises, Promises Barfly Katie Finneran Wins Second Tony Award

Promises, Promises Barfly Katie Finneran Wins Second Tony Award
Katie Finneran

Katie Finneran won her second Tony Award for her hilarious portrayal of a drunken barfly in the Broadway revival of Promises, Promises at the 2010 Tony Awards.

While accepting the trophy for Best Featured Actor in a Musical, Finneran thanked her friends and family (“They’re all in the rafters!”), co-star Kristin Chenoweth (“Who loaned me her eyelashes tonight.”) and Sean Hayes (“The best scene partner ever.”) and made a passionate plea for kids watching on TV to follow their dreams.

She also dedicated the award to Darren Goldstein, the actor who recently became her fiance. “[He] asked me to marry him, and the next week Angela Lansbury took me to Joe Allen’s for dinner!” Finneran beat Lansbury in the category for her performance in A Little Night Music.

Finneran previously won a Tony in 2002 for the play Noises Off.
