"I heard the phone ringing and I had suspected that it had something to do with that because normally people don't call me at half past 8 in the morning! I stayed in bed till a bit later because I was working today with Juilliard Students (they benefitted today from an hour and a half of my ignorance!) It's always nice when the work is recognized and applauded so publicly and so enthusiastically it's always gratifying. I'm also delighted because it's a fantastic group of actors that I'm in with. I'm deliciously shocked and also filled for the play and with 7 noms, it's great for the play, which is wonderful. We got more nominations than any other new play this year and that's just great."
Alfred Molina, nominee for Best Leading Actor in a Play for RED
"I actually am living in a flat in the East Village and I had a slightly too late night last night and I rolled out of bed this morning and it was extraordinary. I can't can't believe that things happen at such an hour! My first phone call was an incoming phone call from Michael Grandage from the Donmar in London and who was incredibly happy and thrilled who also reminded me to not let it affect my performance!"
Eddie Redmayne, nominee for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play in RED
"The Tonys are an important event in the theatre calendar and to be honoured as we have been is a very special moment in the Donmar's ongoing relationship with the Broadway community. I am very proud and humbled by this extraordinary recognition of our work today."
Michael Grandage, Artsitic Director, Donmar Warehouse and nominee for Best Director for RED
