Last night, the 67th Annual Tony Awards ceremony took place at Radio City Music Hall, New York. At the glamorous and star studded evening the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Broadway production of Matilda The Musical won FOUR Tony Awards. Matilda has now danced away with a phenomenal 47 awards, so far, in Stratford-Upon-Avon, London and New York!

Gabriel Ebert, who plays Mr Wormwood, won Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical. Best Book of a Musical went to Dennis Kelly. Rob Howell claimed Best Scenic Design of a Musical and Hugh Vanstone Best Lighting Design of a Musical.

The four actresses who play the title role in Matilda The Musical on Broadway: Sophia Gennusa, Oona Laurence, Bailey Ryon and Milly Shapiro received Tony Honors for Excellence in the Theatre.

You can see Matilda’s full list of TWELVE Tony award nominations, including Best Musical and Best Original Score Written for the Theatre (for Tim’s Music and Lyrics), in this earlier blog and the full list of Tony Award winners can be found here.

Many congratulations to everyone at Matilda The Musical on Broadway.

I saw Matilda Sat Aug 2nd matinee with Milly as Matilda, and was blown away. That is how I learned about Tim, and I have done little but watch Tim and Matilda videos on YouTube since. Naughty, When I Grow Up, and the version of Hayley doing Quiet are the best. Love Tim’s music and comedy, and his politics don’t suck either.

I so hope Matilda the Musical comes to Melbourne. Otherwise, it’s a very compelling case for travelling to London!!

Many, many years from now, people will still be performing ‘Matilda,’ and the play that won best musical and best score will be a trivia question. Thanks Tim.

Fantastic! More awards than you can shake a stick at! Just love the Tony Award Medley! Made my day! Rock and Roll……

Tim, I just wanted you to know that we are just all so proud of you here. We were disappointed for you that you didn’t get a personal Tony for your beautifully original music and lyrics, but intelligence and class will always win out and we’re sure ‘Matilda’ will run for years. (We’re coming to London later this year, largely because we want to see it!) We were blown away by your Judas in Sydney last weekend. It was such a powerful and moving performance and who knew you could also dance?! Next for us is “Rosencrantz” and we will be there with bells on to give our support and cheer you on. Rock on Tim – you’re a ‘one and only’, that’s for sure!!
