News   Museum of TV & Radio Offers "Tony Awards Highlights" Screening Aug. 6-17
 
Not to be outdone by the upcoming PBS special "Broadway's Lost Treasures" — which will present 17 songs from previous Tony Award telecasts — The Museum of Television & Radio will offer a screening of different Tony Awards highlights beginning Aug. 6.

The New York City museum recently acquired a collection of tapes from those Tony Awards telecasts that were produced by the late Alexander Cohen. The 90-minute-long screening will offer clips from the first ten years of Cohen's broadcasts, 1967-1976. Among the productions that will be featured during "Tony Awards Highlights: The Alexander H. Cohen Years: 1967-1976" are I Do! I Do!, starring Mary Martin and Robert Preston; Pippin with Ben Vereen; Over Here! with the Andrews Sisters; Chicago, with Jerry Orbach; Purlie with Melba Moore; Hello, Dolly! with Pearl Bailey; and the long-running classic, A Chorus Line. A Tony Awards tribute to Broadway belter Ethel Merman — starring Merman, Larry Blyden and Hal Linden — will also be part of the afternoon.

The screenings will be held Aug. 6 (4:15 PM), Aug. 7-10 (3:15 PM) and Aug. 12-17 (3:15 PM) at The Museum of Television & Radio, which is located in Manhattan at 25 West 52nd Street. There is a suggested donation of $10.
