Why Ensemblists Are Excited for The Tony Awards

Mo Brady

As Broadway ensemblists are gearing up for tomorrow's Tony Awards, podcast guests and friends share with us why they are excited for tomorrow's celebration.

Performing at the TONYS is the most exhilarating experience. I start to giggle just thinking about it. I’m excited to give the world a taste of our completely original show and cheer on my friends to celebrate this incredible season.
— Max Clayton (Bandstand)
There’s this one section of choreography that is utterly exhausting but my absolute favorite because it requires you to LIVE! For me, it’s a quintessential part of our show and I’m so excited to do it on this stage representing this beautiful show on the Tonys (!!!!!) that I made my family watch every year and now they’ll get to see me on them!
— Erica Dorfler (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812)

I’m so excited to get to be onstage at Radio City Music Hall and perform for a bunch of incredible artists I’ve idolized for so many years!
— Alex Gibson (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812)
I’m most excited about performing on that legendary stage with this amazing cast. We have been through so many ups and downs as a company and I can’t wait to celebrate our show and our 7 nominations by performing alongside my ridiculously talented castmates and representing our brilliant show. It’ll truly feel like a celebratory “WE DID IT!” moment. CHAMPIONS ADJUST!
— Raymond Lee (Groundhog Day)

Hear from Raymond on our Broadway Parents episode.

I’m excited for the world to see Eva Noblezada perform and for a new generation to discover ‘Miss Saigon’. Also, I’m excited for the people who love Broadway but might not have the chance to get to NYC to see some of the incredible shows and performances happening this year.
— Paul HeeSang Miller (Miss Saigon)

I’m most looking forward to the actual live performance! It’s a whirlwind and it happens in a flash. But for those 3 minutes you are getting to perform your heart out in celebration of our industries highest honor in front of your colleagues, your friends, your family, the fans & at Radio City Music Hall no less! It’s like a dream and I can’t wait!!

I’m really excited to bring our wonderful show that celebrates all of our weirdness into the iconic space of Radio City Music Hall. History has been made in that space and I can’t wait to toast to everyone in their tuxes and ball gowns as our company invites them to join our band of gypsy lovers!

Im looking forward to dancing my ass off with my partner Ericka Mansfield and this unbelievable group of dancers that im humbled to work with every night. And.... that feeling when the curtain comes up and my heart switch leaps out of my chest and does a cooter slam centerstage :-)
— Keven Quillon (Bandstand)
1. Knowing that my mom will be watching from home as she does every year, but this time she’ll be looking for her daughter :)
2. Having our show introduced by Lea Salonga, who I looked up to as a distant star when I was a kid, and got to become friends with when we did Allegiance on Broadway together.

— Travis Waldschmidt (Groundhog Day)

I’m most looking forward to sharing the magic with my cast. This is truly the closest, most magical show family I’ve ever been blessed to create with. They are some of my dearest friends, and there are so many debuts and firsts and dreams coming true in our company. It’s a joy we can all celebrate and share together as a family, no matter what happens Sunday night!
