Tina TurnbowMary-Louise Parker, a Tony winner for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play, offered a sense in a backstage interview of what it felt like to attend tonight’s show.“It’s really amazing,” Parker told press in a brief interview streamed to press covering the show. “On the one hand, it sort of feels like you’re back at the Tony Awards. But there is definitely something different about it because every time someone says something poignant or personal, you can hear everyone respond
en masse. It’s like there’s this collective commonality that I don’t think I’ve ever experienced in a crowd that big before. It’s why some of us who love the theater so much and feel like it’s our home and our family, you really feel that tonight in a way that’s indescribable.”
Parker, a winner for her performance in two-handed Adam Rapp thrillerThe Sound Inside,said the Winter Garden Theatre felt different from the Tonys’ longtime home, Radio City Music Hall. The awards show was postponed multiple times due to the pandemic and then relocated to a smaller venue for Covid-19 safety reasons. Parker was among many participants in the Tonys to marvel at the mere fact of the Tonys happening and theaters returning to life after more than a year of devastating shutdown. headtopics.com
“I think everybody’s just happy to be inatheater,” Parker said. “A lot of the actors are just looking in the wings and thinking of what’s that like and when they’ll be standing there again. I do think it’s different, I really do.”Parker’s award came toward the end of Part 1 of the Tonys, a trophy-packed two-hour segment that streamed on Paramount+. The second half, which is airing on CBS, is mainly devoted to music performances and a salute to Broadway’s return, but three major awards will also be given during the two-hour telecast.

Mary Trump Quips That Her Uncle's Lawyers Now Probably 'Operate Out Of Strip Malls'And she thanked Donald Trump for helping her sell more books by suing her. He'll just tie her up in lawsuits for years and thousands of dollars. That's what he does. Strip malls…or strip CLUBS?
Michael Cohen's advice to Mary TrumpMichael Cohen's advice to Mary Trump regarding the lawsuit fmr. Pres. Trump filed against her: 'I have read dozens of Donald Trump depositions. They are the dumbest written paper that you've ever seen. Nothing makes sense, everything is circular.' I cannot wrap my head around how a major mainstream news media outlet like MSNBC would put something like this in a tweet. It's insane that an entire news station is built around hating one man. Didn't Cohen represent him for years? I thought his testimony was going to put Trump away once and for all. Now he works for you? And we are supposed to trust that. Come on, guys. Let's ask Americans of the recent Presidents over the past say 50 yrs. which one would be the most likely to use the military against American citizens . Then ask which one would be most likely to start a civil war if they were to lose a second time ? Good luck corporate donors .
