Coconut Water and 10-Inch Heels: 2012 Tony Nominees Share Awards Season Survival Tips

Coconut Water and 10-Inch Heels: 2012 Tony Nominees Share Awards Season Survival Tips
Jeremy Jordan, Kelli O'Hara, Christian Borle & Cristin Milioti
What keeps Christian Borle's voice in top shape during awards season?

Broadway’s brightest stars make waltzing down the red carpet look easy, but it’s tough to stay healthy (and gorgeous!) during awards season while playing a Newsie, the president of Argentina, a psychic or Judy Garland eight times a week. Now that the pre-Tony events are in full swing, even new nominees have become old pros at attending lavish, star-studded and exhausting events. At the 78th annual Drama League Awards, caught up with Tony-nominated headliners and asked them to share their secret weapons for looking and feeling fabulous all season long.

Celia Keenan-Bolger (Peter and the Starcatcher): Raspberry Emergen-C; Wellness Formula (“an immunity booster that I take in the morning”)

Jeremy Jordan (Newsies): Two gallons of water every day

Cristin Milioti (Once): Rescue Remedy; a Pit Bull (“Dogs are every calming.”)

Linda Lavin (The Lyons): 10-inch Giuseppe Zanotti heels

Christian Borle (Peter and the Starcatcher): Han’s Honey Loquat Syrup

Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Ghost): Coconut water and a Glam Squad

Jeremy Shamos (Clybourne Park): Mints

Tracie Bennett (End of the Rainbow): Seven Seas Tonic (“full of vitamin Bs”)

Jessie Mueller (On a Clear Day You Can See Forever): Shoes you can actually walk in; a granola bar

Kelli O’Hara (Nice Work If You Can Get It): A good night's sleep (“Seven or eight hours, if you can get it!”)

Michael Cerveris (Evita): Yerba Mate (“The Argentine national drink, which also, luckily, has caffeine in it.”)
