News PHOTO CALL: The Tony Brunch: Shear-ly Stritch

Photo by Ernio Hernandez

Writer-performer Claudia Shear, and Friend Of Elaine, accepted Elaine Stritch's Tony nomination for Special Theatrical Event. Perched on the nomination certificate is a jointed, dancing Stritch toy. The contraption, as well as a larger version of the same model, was sent to Stritch by an inventive fan. Once wound up by a metal key at its back, the Stritch cut-out dances and twitches uncontrollably, exhibiting even more energy than the actress herself.

The Tony Brunch, at which all Tony nominees receive their nomination plaques, was held May 15 at The View restaurant at the top of the Marriott Marquis.
