In an article in Variety, editor Gordon Cox discussed the frontrunners for this year’s Tony Awards, which recognize both achievement and excellence in Broadway theatre, and highlighted the Clifford Odets play “Golden Boy,” directed by Bart Sher, a 1981 graduate of the College of the Holy Cross.
Nominated for Best Direction of a Play, Sher’s production of “Golden Boy” also received nods for Best Revival of a Play, Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role (actors Danny Burstein and Tony Shalhoub), Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design.
With Cox referencing “Golden Boy” as a “much-lauded revival,” Sher is no stranger to the Broadway stage, as he received a Tony Award for best direction for his revival of South Pacific in 2008.
CBS will broadcast this year’s Tony Awards on Sunday, June 9th at 8 p.m.
