WAKE UP with BWW 6/2/14 - 'HOLLER' Begins, Plus Theatre World, Lilly and Astaire Awards!

Good morning, BroadwayWorld! Because we know all our readers eat, sleep and breathe Broadway, what could be better than waking up to it? Today's big news: We're kicking off the week leading up to the Tonys with an awards-filled Monday -- stay tuned for our coverage of the Theatre World Awards, Lilly Awards and Astaire Awards (oh my!), plus HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME begins on Broadway tonight!



Broadway Weather Forecast: Sunny with a high of 80 degrees. Great way to kick off the week leading up to the Tonys! Let's hope this keeps up.

Quote of the Day: Are actors having more fun than the audience? Less? Does it matter?

From a very young age, I wanted to get up on stage whenever I went to the theatre - the actors just seemed to be having so much fun. One of my worries about theatre, in fact, is that the actors are quite often having more fun than the audience.
-- Olivia Williams (via BrainyQuote)

What we're looking forward to: HBO's THE NORMAL HEART on Blu-ray. It hits the shelves at the end of August, and we can't wait to watch it again!

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Zachary Quinto, who turns 38 today!

Quinto starred with Celia Keenan-Bolger, Cherry Jones and Brian J. Smith in THE GLASS MENAGERIE on Broadway last year. He has also appeared off-Broadway in Angels in America, Parts 1 and 2, for which he received a Drama Desk nomination and won a Theatre World Award in 2011. He recently starred on the big screen in We'll Never Have Paris and Star Trek Into Darkness. He has also appeared on the small screen in FX's American Horror Story and the TV series Heroes, So Notorious and 24.
