The Toast of Broadway Comes Out for the Annual Tony Honors Cocktail Party

 Judy McLane and Howard McGillin

Judy McLane and Howard McGillin

The lead-up to the Tony Awards, set for June 11, is filled with luncheons, cocktails, and various photo ops. This in addition to the eight shows a week often required of those whose productions are still being staged. The show must go on, as they say, and the last big hurrah is the Tony Honors Cocktail Party, held Monday at the Sofitel hotel in New York.

As part of this special recognition, Judy McLane and Howard McGillin performed a song from Chess (“Someone Else’s Story”) and The Phantom of the Opera (“The Music of the Night”), respectively. By the end of the last ballad, several could be seen wiping tears, including Dear Evan Hansen’s Tony–nominated actress Rachel Bay Jones.
