Photo Coverage: Tony Awards Go Hollywood

On April 3rd, 2008 John Lithgow and other Broadway stars were honored at a dinner at La Boheme in Hollywood, CA hosted by The American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League. This was the first time an event took place honoring Tony Award winners and nominees on the west coast.

John Lithgow is in his new one man show John Lithgow: Stories By The Heart on Sunday and Monday nights at 7pm beginning Sunday, April 20 in the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater (150 W. 65 Street).  John Lithgow: Stories By The Heart, which will be directed by Jack O'Brien, will be presented during the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater run of Paul Rudnick's The New Century for 14 performances only through Monday, June 2.  Opening night for John Lithgow: Stories By The Heart is Monday, May 12 at 7pm.


The American Theatre Wing is best known as the creator of the Antoinette Perry "Tony" Awards, which it presents annually with The Broadway League.  The Wing's other activities, dedicated to recognizing excellence and supporting education in theatre, include "Working in the Theatre," now in its 29th year of telecasts on CUNY TV in New York and on other national cable outlets; "Downstage Center," an hour-long weekly interview program on XM Satellite Radio; "Guides to Careers in the Theatre," a video series developed for schools and libraries; a grants and scholarship program to New York City schools and not-for-profit theatre companies, which has awarded more than $2.5 million since its inception; the Theatre Intern Group, a career development program for young professionals; and SpringboardNYC, a two-week college-to-career boot camp for young performers moving to NYC.  Visitors to www.americantheatrewing.org can view or download an archive of "Working in the Theatre" and the career guides and listen to "Downstage Center", all as free, on-demand streaming audio and podcast. Sondra Gilman is Chairman of the Board of the American Theatre Wing; Doug Leeds is President of the Board and Howard Sherman is Executive Director.
