Kudos to our Broadway buddies who brought home gold at last night’s #tonyawards. Kudos to Neil Patrick Harris (who was in our 2000 Sweeney Todd and 2011 Company), Jessie Mueller (Carousel, 2013), and Audra McDonald (Sweeney 2000 & 2014, the latter being aired on PBS Sept. 26). We are proud to call you friends! (Photos by Chris Lee)
