Terrence Mann Recalls the Onstage and Offstage Tony Night Excitement When Les Miserables Ruled Broadway

Terrence Mann Recalls the Onstage and Offstage Tony Night Excitement When Les Miserables Ruled Broadway
Terrence Mann
Terrence Mann met two of his idols backstage at the Tonys.

In the weeks leading up to the 2013 Tony telecast, Broadway.com is posting video clips of favorite Tony memories of this year’s nominees, with their own commentary. Capping off our series is Terrence Mann, who picked up his third Tony nomination for the featured role of Charlemagne in Pippin. The Broadway favorite shares warm memories of June 7, 1987, the night of his first nomination as Javert in Les Miserables, when the ceremony was held at the greatly missed Mark Hellinger Theatre. (No wonder Mann enjoyed himself: Listen to the audience in the clip below erupt when he enters at 1:48!)

“The night Les Miz was nominated [for 12 Tonys] was pretty memorable! Singing ‘One Day More’ was awesome. I also got to meet Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore backstage that night. They hadn’t seen each other in a while, and I stood between them, which was exciting.”
