Singing a Victory Song: First-Time Broadway Composers Receive Tony Nominations for Best Score
01 May 2013
The nominees for Best Original Score certainly weren't singing the blues on Tuesday morning. Every person but one in this category is a first-time composer for the Broadway stage, and, with his/her Broadway debut, is now nominated for a Tony Award. (Amanda Green, who collaborated with Trey Anastasio on Hands on a Hardbody, has written for Broadway before, but this marks her first nomination.)
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
