Valisia LeKae and George Brescia
Playbill.com has joined forces with entertainment website Stage17.tv to live stream coverage from the 68th Annual Tony Awards red carpet. Motown Tony nominee Valisia LeKae and stylist George Brescia will co-host the red carpet coverage that will begin at 6:30 PM ET on Playbill.com.
LeKae and Brescia will add a fresh approach to red carpet interviews, focusing on fashion and the real lives of the nominees. Coverage will feature the designers and accessories, how the actors look and feel about their Tony Awards style, while recognizing their artistic achievements and enjoying the fun and old school glamour of the Tonys.
LeKae, a 2013 Tony Award nominee for portraying Diana Ross in Motown, is also the spokesperson for National Ovarian Cancer Coalition. Brescia is the star of Stage17.tv's "Dress Up! With George B. Style."
"Dress Up! Live: The 2014 Tony Awards Red Carpet" will be live streamed from the red carpet on Playbill.com. The show will re-air in its entirety following the ceremony on Stage17.tv. During the livestream, Stage17.tv and the Broadway ticket app TodayTix will offer an inside look at the nominees and a special contest geared to mobile device users.
