BWW TV Exclusive: Meet the 2014 Tony Nominees- Black Eye or Not, Andy Karl Will Be at ROCKY!
It's Tonys season! The 2014 Tony Awards will broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City, on CBS, on Sunday, June 8th 8:00 - 11:00 p.m. The ceremony is still weeks away, and in the meantime, BroadwayWorld wants you to get to know this year's nominees. Richard Ridge was thrilled to speak with nearly all of them at the official Tonys Meet & Greet on April 30, 2014, and we will be bringing you special coverage on all of them leading up to the big night.
Today we kick off our Tonys coverage with Andy Karl, a nominee for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for Rocky, who chats about the thrill of being recognized after 20 years on Broadway, drawing inspiration from Sylvester Stallone, and more. Check out what he had to say below!
Rocky brings to life the iconic and inspiring story of struggling small time Philly boxer, Rocky Balboa, who gets a once-in-a-lifetime shot to go the distance against heavyweight champ Apollo Creed. Both an adrenaline-infused spectacle and a surprising story of blossoming romance between two lonely outsiders, Rocky is a heart-stopping and viscerally theatrical new musical for everyone brave enough to follow their dream.
