The Tony Awards are like Christmas in June for theatre lovers, and that makes this year's nominees the reason for the season. 2017-18 was a year or variety, as audiences cheered on mean girls, tall women, and fair ladies alike. Our travel destinations ranged from Bet Hatikva to Bikini Bottom; Arendelle to the Antilles. We've contemplated redemption with Billy, pondered pipe dreams with Hickey, and reexamined the past with Harry- all from the the comfort of a seat on the aisle.

This year's Tony nominees transported us with the magic of theatre, and we're saluting their work by taking a closer look at their extraordinary accomplishments. Today we're studying up on Justin Peck!

If he could see a Broadway show tonight, which would Justin pick? "I would definitely go see The Band's Visit. I love The Band's Visit. I saw it once already, but I'm dying to see it again. I think it's one of the most unique, fascinating and beautiful shows of the season so far."
