WATCH NOW! Zooming in on the Tony Nominees: Nick Scandalios
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 Nick Scandalios!

Nick on his first Broadway show: "It was either Doug Henning in The Magic Show or Sandy Duncan in Peter Pan. I saw them almost in succession. I remember exactly where I was sitting for Sandy Duncan. I was in the front row of the mezzanine at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater and she flew right up to us, so I remember that exhilarating feeling. Yeah, being a young, New York, Long Island baby going to the theater!"
