StereophonicForget the masquerade. Sarah Pidgeon is going to the Tony Awards! The Stereophonic star just earned a nomination for her debut performance on Broadway in one of the most acclaimed new plays of the season. 

"I find myself saying lines from the play in my real life! I'm wondering about the same things that Diana does and thinking about my relationship to art and my identity as an artist and what that path has been like for me," she told BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge.

Pidgeon was prepped for a career on Broadway at Carnegie Mellon University. "I know for a fact that I wouldn't be here without all of my teachers and classmates," she continued. "That's a fact! And it warms my heart every time that a teacher comes to the show. It's really special."

"As Head of the School of Drama at Carnegie Mellon University, I am deeply proud of our longstanding history of alumni working on Broadway," said Robert Ramirez, Head of School of Drama at CMU. "From designers to producers, actors to directors, and every vital role in between – if there's a job in the theater, you can bet a CMU grad has done it, and has done it with excellence and integrity. We are honored to be the higher education partner of the Tony Awards and to have the opportunity not only to celebrate our community of alumni on Broadway each year, but also to recognize a deserving theater educator who is making a difference in their community. This year, we are thrilled to shine a light on CJay Philip and the incredible work she is doing through Dance & Bmore in Baltimore. The importance of arts education cannot be overstated, and Carnegie Mellon is proud to champion it through this meaningful partnership."
