Adornment: Huffman, perscription glasses & a gold pinky ring.
Winner: Journey’s End
Our production editor, Maria Reyes, sold me on Liev in Talk Radio but I had no personal stake in this category.
Best Performance of a Leading Actress in a Play
Presented by Brian Dennehy – a Tony Award-winner as Best Actor in a Play for his performances in Death of a Salesman (1999) and Long Day’s Journey Into Night (2003). He is currently appearing in Inherit the Wind.
He was unforgettable in Salesman, I was speechless after the performance & took the bus all the way to and from Oberlin to see it, by myself. It was 14 hours by Greyhound, both ways & worth every second of screaming children & annoying cellphone conversations.
Audra also presented (she had changed since the red carpet) and was in a regal shade of purple, with small, drop, circular earrings and a simple chain necklace with a singular gemstone off-set by pounds of fake hair.

Winner: Julie White, who was clearly shocked to win. She was in a playful, floral summer dress, which made it clear, aside from her hilarious acceptance speech, that she really didn’t think that she was going to win. She wore a great gold bracelet comprised of several strands which caught the light wonderfully.

The recap of the the technical awards. You know, a friend of mine designed the hair for about 8 shows that are up right now, I’m shocked that there’s no award for that. I’ll have to ask him why & report back.
