My View: This Long Running Show Deserves A Shout Out From The Tony Awards

 

 The show has been running for over 25 years. Broadway Producer and three time Tony Award winner Jamie deRoy held her annual Jamie deRoy & friends Tony Award show last night and the Red Carpet was rolled out at Birdland for the star studded event.  Jamie’s fans and friends had their cell phone cameras at the ready as one by one Jamie introduced her award-winning cast which included, Chuck Cooper (The Life) Penny Fuller (Sunday in the Park with George, Cabaret), Mandy Gonzalez (Hamilton, In the Heights), Rupert Holmes (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) with special guest, Patti Cohenour (War Paint, The Mystery of Edwin Drood), Doreen Montalvo (On Your Feet, In the Heights) and Paulo Szot (South Pacific) with Billy Stritch

There isn’t a Tony Award category for Jamie deRoy & friends but Jamie has won eight MAC Awards, four Black Stage Bistro Awards and 10 Telly Awards for her extensive work on both stage and screen. 

This show was priced significantly less than a ticket to the Tony’s but the music, conversation, and outstanding singing gave you a sensational dose of Broadway.  It was one of the Broadway at Birdland series most entertaining hours.   

The party (after) continued with a few friends in The Carlyle at Bemelmans where Billy Stritch and Jim Caruso hold court every Sunday form 9-12 PM

Ron Abel was the award winning music director and the award winning Barry Kleinbort was director.
