Broadway’s big night was a celebration through sunrise, and appropriately so since DKC/O&M’s clients accounted for seven Tony wins amid a record 50 nominations.
Attendees for the annual early morning Tony Awards after party — held for the first time at the Baccarat Hotel — included Andrew Lloyd Webber, who briefly manned the DJ booth featuring AndrewAndrew in his very own “Disco Lloyd Webber,” as well as Steve Martin, Diane Lane, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sophie Okonedo, Danielle Brooks, Victoria Justice and more of theatre’s movers and shakers. Not to be missed was a bathtub full of Bollinger champagne in the VIP suite where guests sang along to show tunes played on a gorgeous baby grand piano until past 5 a.m.
David Rockwell, a long-time DKC client and six-time nominee, won his first Tony for best set design of a musical, “She Loves Me.” “The Humans” won best play while “A View From the Bridge” won best play revival. Other winners were: Reed Burney, best featured actor in a play in “The Humans,” Jayne Houdyshell, best featured actress in a play in “The Humans,” Ivo van Hove, best director of a play for “A View From the Bridge,” and David Zinn, best set design of a play for “The Humans.”
In the wake of the heartbreaking news out of Orlando Sunday morning, it was a difficult and emotional night for all. The DKC/O+M team handled it with the utmost professionalism and compassion.
