Oh The TONY AWARDS!!! (sigh) My absolute favorite event of the year! Theater is my love, and love is my theater? Well, maybe not quite in that order but, I do love my some Broadway! On Sunday June 8th, 2014 Radio City Music Hall welcomed all esteemed Broadway veterans and enthusiasts to it’s theater for the 68th Annual American Theater Wing Tony Awards. I once dreamed of what it would be like to win a Tony! Hell, who am I kidding? I still dream of a day where I too can win a Tony! Not for costume design necessarily but for Best Lead, Supporting for Featured Actress in a Musical! Yes, I am your stereotypical theater kid who would rather listen to the “Best of Broadway” station on Pandora than my generation’s top 40 playlist! I probably pissed off a few of my college dorm neighbors by belting many-a-tune in the shower or possibly recording audition videos on youtube that I can’t figure out how to delete since I no longer know my login email or password to that account! But I didn’t care, for it was my escape and my happy place; trying my best to match pitch and harmonize to songs such as “Written in the Stars” from Aida and “Who Will Love Me As I Am” from Side Show, to “The Song of Purple Summer” from Spring Awakening and “A Heart Full of Love” from Les Miserables (naturally, I always sang as Eponine) and many, many, many, many, more!! I’m not afraid to admit to it, and I own fully that without theater my life would be boring and although I have not performed in front of an audience since my Junior year of college, I miss it dearly! But life is funny that way, ya never know what may come across your path! Maybe my dream will come to a reality one day, or maybe it will always be a dream kept inside my heart, but for now I’ll; sticking to what I know second best my fellow theater kid darlings, and that is FASHION!
