Gabriel Ebert, BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A FEATURED ROLE IN A MUSICAL for MATILDA
"I was actually just was lying in bed and my phone started exploding, not literally exploding, but exploding with phone calls and texts. The first one was from my agent and then I realized and I did a dance. I'm so in love with the show and I really believe in the vision of the creative team, and feel thankful to be a part of it. It's so stunning, so precise, unique and imaginative and I'm glad that other people see it that way too. I have a show to do tonight, but I figured I should celebrate today by buying some nice, new clothes to put up a good appearance. It's a very rare occasion that I shop for clothes, but I thought it might be necessary!"
