C'est Sheik!

C'est Sheik!

In what is undoubtedly a harbinger of things to come for Spring Awakening, composer and one-time pop star Duncan Sheik (pictured) has won this year's Tony Award for Best Orchestrations. Spring Awakening has been nominated for 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical -- an award that most presume the show will win.

Keeping Spring Awakening on a roll, Kevin Adams has taken home the Tony for Best Lighting in a Musical.

The other expected juggernaut of the evening, The Coast Of Utopia, has already won three awards: Best Lighting, Best Costume and Best Scenic Designs of a Play. Brian MacDevitt, Kenneth Posner and Natasha Katz's collaboration has won for their efforts on lighting. Catherine Zuber won for the marathon play's costume design. Bob Crowley and Scott Pask have won for their scenic design.

Crowley is a dual winner, having just won the Tony for his scenic design for Mary Poppins.

But all is not lost for Grey Gardens: William Ivey Long has earned the Tony for Best Costume Design of a Musical.

In just ten minutes, the "big" awards portion of the ceremony commences. I'll provide a complete wrap-up of the awards later (since I'll soon be boarding a four hour flight from Beijing to Tokyo).

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB)..

Can you believe that Laura Bell Bundy BEAT Christine Ebersole for the "leading actress in a musical" Tony?

E - You are a funny man. I'm absolutely thrilled that Christine Ebersole took home the prize. Of all the awards handed out, hers was the most richly deserved.
