23 May 2014
The big winners at last year's Annual Tony Awards included Kinky Boots, which took home a total of six awards, including Best Musical, as well as Pippin, the cirque-inspired musical re-envisioned by Diane Paulus, and Matilda, the inventive and dark children's musical, which each took home four Tonys. Here are the acceptance speeches from The 67th Annual Tony Awards. (The 68th Annual Tony Awards, hosted by Hugh Jackman, will air June 8 on CBS.)
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
