Entertainment Asia: US Tony Awards - The Tony Awards Highlights.
TAPE: EF02/0472 IN_TIME: 06:15:44 DURATION: 9:30 SOURCES: CBS RESTRICTIONS: DATELINE: New York 2/6/02 SHOTLIST: 1. WS Natasha Richardson and Liam Neeson present Best Actress in a Play 2. CU Nominees 3. WS Winner: Lindsey Duncan 4. WS Calista Flockhart presents Best Actor in a Play 5. CU Nominees 6. WS Winner: Alan Bates 7. WS Whoopi Goldberg presents Best Play 9. WS Winner: "The Goat" 10.WS Mary Tyler Moore presents Best Musical 11.CU Nominees 12.WS Winner: "Thoroughly Modern Millie" STORYLINE: ALBEE WINS BEST PLAY AT TONY AWARDS "Thoroughly Modern Millie," the Jazz Age tale of an ambitious flapper, tapped its way to six Tony Awards including best musical, while "The Goat," Edward Albee's comic drama about the unpredictable nature of love, was named best play. Besides best musical, "Millie" received prizes at Sunday's awards ceremony for lead actress-musical, Sutton Foster; featured actress-musical, Harriet Harris; choreography, Rob Ashford; costumes, Martin Pakledinaz and orchestrations, Doug Besterman and Ralph Burns. "Urinetown," the satiric little show about a city where everyone must pay to use toilets, received three major prizes _ for direction of a musical (John Rando), best book (Greg Kotis), and score of a musical (shared by Kotis and Mark Hollmann). It's not unheard-of for a musical to win book and score and then lose the top prize, as "Urinetown" did. It happened last in 1998 when "Ragtime" lost to "The Lion King" and 10 years earlier when the original "Into the Woods" won book and score and "The Phantom of the Opera" took best musical. For "Millie's" Foster, it was a Cinderella-inspired victory. The 27-year-old actress, originally an understudy, was elevated to the starring role just before the musical, based on the 1967 Julie Andrews film, began its tryout at California's La Jolla Playhouse in 2000. "To say that this is a dream come true is an understatement," said the overwhelmed Foster. Albee's win for "The Goat or Who is Sylvia?" _ was especially sweet for the playwright who last won a best-play Tony in 1963 for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Albee thanked his producers who, he wryly said, had "the faith, the outrageous faith, that Broadway was ready to see a play about love." Some of the night's most tumultuous applause was reserved for Elaine Stritch, finally winning the Tony that has eluded her since 1956, when she received the first of her four previous nominations. The 77-year-old performer got the special theatrical event prize for her one-woman show, "Elaine Stritch at Liberty." "Don't take up my time," the emotional Stritch began as the audience cheered. The actress, who gave a 20-minute acceptance speech at the New York Drama Critics' Circle awards ceremony last month, talked past a persistent orchestra that tried to drown her out. "Please don't do that to me," she said angrily as the televised proceedings cut to a commercial. Alan Bates and Frank Langella the two stars of "Fortune's Fool" received Tonys: Bates as best actor-play for his portrayal of an impoverished nobleman and Langella, in the featured category, for his portrait of an extravagant fop. John Lithgow, who plays a powerful New York gossip columnist in "Sweet Smell of Success," took the prize for best actor-musical. "There are four fantastic actors in this category and they all sing better than I do," said a gracious Lithgow. Mary Zimmerman who adapted and directed the myth-inspired "Metamorphoses" took the prize for direction of a play. "I would like to thank every person I've ever met in my life," said Zimmerman as she fought back tears. "Private Lives" won for best revival of a play as well as for actress-play, Lindsay Duncan as Amanda, the world-weary sophisticate in the Noel Coward comedy, and for its settings designs by Tim Hatley. "Into the Woods" upended "Oklahoma!" for the musical-revival prize and also garnered the lighting prize (Brian MacDevitt). Katie Finneran, the nearsighted blond bombshell in "Noises Off," won in the featured actress-play category, while Shuler Hensley was chosen as featured actor in a musical for his role as the brooding, despondent Jud Fry in "Oklahoma!" Unlike last season, when "The Producers" took a record 12 of 22 competitive awards, this year's prizes were shared among 11 shows. "This season was more evenly divided," says Jed Bernstein, head of the League of American Theatres and Producers. Both grosses and attendance were down slightly from the previous season's banner year, leaving industry leaders more relieved than dismayed. "Broadway has rebounded," Bernstein said, referring to the disastrous events of Sept. 11 and the aftereffects of a lingering economic downturn. Business was shaky throughout the fall but gradually returned, even if a lot of the tourists didn't, thanks to aggressive marketing campaigns, more theatergoers from the suburban New York area, discount ticket sales and a milder than normal winter. Yet a sense of nervousness prevails. Advance ticket sales have faltered with audiences preferring to buy at the last minute or only a week or two in advance. The Tonys are a joint presentation of the league and the American Theater Wing, which founded the awards in 1947. Nominees were chosen by the 27-member Tony nominating committee of theater professionals. Winners then were voted on by 731 theater professionals and journalists.

I do a lot of Harold Pinter's work, I do a lot of new plays and I mean, I couldn't be happier, but it's not that often that people get to see me doing comedy. I get a chance to do that." 28. SOT Edward Albee, Playwright/Tony Winner Best Play, 'The Goat or Who is Sylvia?': "Any piece of theatre that is worth going to should be a piece of theatre that is upsetting and disturbing and provocative in some way. Feel good isn't enough - especially for 75 bucks." 29. SOT Alan Bates, Tony Winner Best Leading Actor in a Play, 'Fortune's Fool': "It's great to play parts that were written 150 years ago that no-one else in the West has played - we're the first. It's great. And it's for that reason I think that winning the prize gives us an extra little feeling of this work has been acknowledged that's been sitting there and no-one has knew about it and we are the lucky boys." 30. WS Radio City Hall STORYLINE: STAR STUDDED TURNOUT FOR THE 2002 TONY AWARDS Stars at the Tony Awards on Sunday night agreed it has been an especially difficult and important year for Broadway. After the September 11th terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, the Great White Way, almost lost its way. But the stellar turnout at Radio City Hall offered proof that Broadway has held its own through the bad times. 'Thoroughly Modern Millie,' the Jazz Age tale of an ambitious flapper, was the night's big winner -- racking up six including best musical. 'The Goat,' Edward Albee's comic drama about the unpredictable nature of love, was named best play. Besides best musical, 'Millie' received prizes for lead actress-musical, Sutton Foster; featured actress-musical, Harriet Harris; choreography, Rob Ashford; costumes, Martin Pakledinaz and orchestrations, Doug Besterman and Ralph Burns. For 'Millie's' Foster, it was a fairy-tale victory. The 27-year-old actress, originally an understudy, was elevated to the starring role just before the musical, based on the 1967 Julie Andrews film, began its tryout at California's La Jolla Playhouse in 2000. 'Urinetown,' the satire about a city where everyone must pay to use toilets, received three major prizes - for direction of a musical (John Rando), best book (Greg Kotis), and score of a musical (shared by Kotis and Mark Hollmann). Edward Albee's win - for 'The Goat or Who is Sylvia?' - was his second -- he last won a best-play Tony in 1963 for 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.' Some of the night's most thunderous applause was reserved for Elaine Stritch, finally winning the Tony that has eluded her since 1956, when she received the first of her four previous nominations. The 77-year-old performer got the special theatrical event prize for her one-woman show, 'Elaine Stritch at Liberty.' "Don't take up my time," the emotional Stritch began as the audience cheered. However, after two minutes, Stritch's acceptance speech was drowned out by the orchestra and television broadcast cut to a commercial. Each winner had been allocated 45 seconds to accept their award. The star told reporters Sunday that having her speech cut short ruined much of what should have been a jubilant moment. Alan Bates and Frank Langella - the two stars of 'Fortune's Fool' - also received Tonys: Bates as best actor-play for his portrayal of an impoverished nobleman and Langella, in the featured category, for his portrait of an extravagant fop. John Lithgow, who plays a powerful New York gossip columnist in 'Sweet Smell of Success,' took the prize for best actor-musical. Mary Zimmerman who adapted and directed the myth-inspired 'Metamorphoses' took the prize for direction of a play. 'Private Lives' won for best revival of a play as well as for actress-play, Lindsay Duncan as Amanda, the world-weary sophisticate in the Noel Coward comedy, and for its settings designs by Tim Hatley. "Into the Woods" upended "Oklahoma!" for the musical-revival prize and also garnered the lighting prize (Brian MacDevitt). Katie Finneran, the nearsighted blond bombshell in 'Noises Off,' won in the featured actress-play category, while Shuler Hensley was chosen as featured actor in a musical for his role as the brooding, despondent Jud Fry in 'Oklahoma!' Unlike last season, when 'The Producers' took a record 12 of 22 competitive awards, this year's prizes were shared among 11 shows. Both grosses and attendance were down slightly from the previous season's banner year, leaving industry leaders more relieved than dismayed. Business was shaky throughout the fall but gradually returned, even if a lot of the tourists didn't, thanks to aggressive marketing campaigns, more theatergoers from the suburban New York area, discount ticket sales and a milder than normal winter. The Tonys are a joint presentation of the league and the American Theater Wing, which founded the awards in 1947. Nominees were chosen by the 27-member Tony nominating committee of theater professionals. Winners then were voted on by 731 theater professionals and journalists.
