I'm so happy for her to get a nomination at the Tonys. I saw her in the national tour of 'Wicked' in 2005 and she blew me away with her singing and acting. She's always been one of my favorite performers in musical theatre. Her reaction was so sweet:

"I am still weeping. I am so joyful for all involved with DROOD. Sebastian and I are driving to Baltimore and my phone keeps ringing and buzzing. Literally, right now, we are at a rest stop on the NJ Turnpike to get a car phone charger because I am about to loose battery... Obviously, I did not prepare my phone for this incredible Tuesday morning!"

I was very surpised when I saw th. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely ADORE Stephanie and her performance in Drood was nothing short of spectacular, I just did not expect her to be nominated for a leading role. Will Chase was in the show more than she was and he was nominated for featured. x)

So happy for SJB, as well. She was fantastic in “Drood” and I am so glad the Tony’s are recognizing her talents.

In looking over the noms & considering that Lilla Crawford did not get nominated - I can't help for feel that Steph shouldn't be there.

She *should* have opened Wicked too, but I won't get into all that. :) So happy for her.
The Overture is part of the show, people. Please shut your pie hole.

So happy for her its about time. I really think Carolee knocked Lilla out and not Stephanie. I think if she were petitioned for featured for 9 to 5 she would have been nominated for that as well.

For me, this makes up for The Boy From Oz snub. But, I liked her in Drood, of course.

So do I. I think the same would've happened for Megan Hilty as well.
