Live Blogging the Tonys

Some of you may remember 12 years ago when I first moved to New York City I worked for a playwright named Steven Sater. At the time people would ask me "Is he famous? Has he written anything I'd know?" and my reply was always "Not yet, but he will..."

We're 23 minutes into the Tonys telecast, and Spring Awakening has already picked up two awards, including Best Book of a Musical.

I can't tell you how proud and honored I was to watch my old friend and boss accept the Tony for his efforts, and to have my prophecy of 12 years ago come to pass. Never have I met a gentler, more talented, more committed writer with greater love for his craft. To watch him achieve his dream is truly exhilarating.
