Filed under: Broadway BabiesTony Awards


Wow! Two MORE FANTASTIC Tony Award firsts!

And two absolutely gorgeous, touching acceptance speeches!

Steve Kazee just took home the 2012 Best Performance By An Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his incredible work in Once, and in an absolutely heartwrenching and beautiful acceptance speech, thanked his cast and crew for helping him stay strong after the passing of his mother.

Just so incredibly moving.

Directly afterward, James Corden won the Best Performance By An Actor in a Leading Role in a Play for his work in One Man, Two Guvnors, and gave an equally touching, if not entirely different, thank you to his fellow nominees, as well as his fiances!

Ch-ch-check out both speeches (above)!

Ugh!

We're all choked up!

Well-deserved, both you! Congrats!

Another first win this evening, alongside a record-breaking SIXth!

While a lot of the focus of the 2012 Tony Awards goes to the actors for their performances and their respected nominated pieces, the accolade for Best Direction of a Musical went to first-timer John Tiffany for his gorgeous work on Once!

However, right after, Mike Nichols won his sixth award for Best Direction of a Play for his equally brilliant work on the revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman!

Amazing amazing!

Lots of excitement this year!

2012-tony-award-nominations

Well, we think it's safe to say that three of these could sweep this entire year's ceremony!

The 2012 Tony Awards Nominations were announced this morning by Kristin Chenoweth and Jim Parsons, and on top of Bernadette Peters and Hugh Jackman receiving honorary awards - as we reported yesterday - it's clear that there are three big frontrunners this year, as the musical Once managed to garner 11 nods, with Nice Work If You Can Get It and The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess following close behind with 10 each!

Holy shiz! That is seriously impressive!

We can't wait to see how they do when the ceremony airs on June 10th! How about U?!

Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominationsAFTER THE JUMP!

Perez Reviews: Once!

Wow. Wow. Wow!

We were blown away by the Broadway adaptation of Once on Saturday!

The musical was exhilarating! It was earnest and poignant but also vibrant and fun!

The helpless romantic in us couldn't help but be riveted by the captivating love story, told so beautifully and honestly. And the lead performances, by Steve Kazee and Cristin Milioti were inspired! So soulful! Rooted in a sense of realness.

The music, which we had never heard before but are totally buying the soundtrack to, was so moving! It's like One Republic meets Damien Rice. It's rooted in the folk earnestness of Rice but also has the commercial appeal of One Republic.

The ensemble was great as well! No complaints, except for we wish Milioti's character had an additional song or two. The show was driven by Kazee's character, and thankfully he handled it with such finesse. And Cristin's portrayal was so multidimensional and emotionally rich!

We can't recommend Once enough! It's right up there with Newsies for our favorite new show we've seen this season!

Once Is Coming To Broadway!

once-to-be-adapted-into-broadway-musical

Amazing! We always thought this movie would translate well to the stage!

The lovely 2007 indie romance Once - which tells the story of a broken-hearted Irish Busker and young immigrant who connect romantically through the music create together - is currently being adapted into a Broadway production!

Producers John N. Hart Jr., Jeff Sine and Fred Zollo, who bought the live theater rights to the film back in 2008, have announced that Irish playwright Enda Walsh will adapt the script of the John Carney film for stage, and director John Tiffany expects to have it ready for a fall of 2011 premiere!

Wow! We cannot wait to see how this ends up looking!

The simplicity of the film, combined with the amazing performances and beautiful music, really proves how just a little authenticity can elicit a powerful emotional reaction from an audience, so hopefully lightning will strike twice with the stage version!

What do U think?? Do U want to see the Once musical??
