The morning after the 69th Annual Tony Award nominations were announced, Tony Award nominee, Brandon Uranowitz, nominated for creating the role of Adam Hochberg in An American in Paris, sat down with DC Theatre Scene’s Jonathan Mandell at the Tony Awards’ Meet the Nominees session.
Find out what he’s learned from the ballet-centric cast, and what they’ve learned from him, differences between Paris and New York audiences, and, remembering his time in Washington with Studio Theatre’s Torch Song Trilogy, what sets DC’s audiences apart.
An American in Paris is one of two musicals receiving twelve Tony Awards this year, sharing that honor with Fun Home. The 69th Annual Tony Awards® will be broadcast, live from Radio City Music Hall, on CBS, on Sunday June 7 at 8/7c, hosted by Alan Cumming and Kristin Chenoweth.
