Tommy Tune Paints Playbill

Inside Track   Tommy Tune Paints Playbill
 
Tommy Tune dropped by the Playbill offices yesterday to bring us a gift! The larger-than-life, super talented, nine time Tony-winner is also an incredibly accomplished painter (as is evident by this beautiful painting of his Playbill tote).

I also found out an interesting little nugget about Tommy's iconic signature. Turns out, it too goes back to Playbill!

When Tommy was performing on Broadway and was greeted by fans at the stage door with Playbills in hand, he knew that because of our coated paper, he'd have to turn the Playbill over and scribble on the back in order to get the pen to start working. After doing this many times, he realized that he should just incorporate the "scribble" into the signature to save time. And so his signature stayed...scribble and all.
