Do you have Tony Awards madness? The Tony Awards and Dress Circle Publishing announce a special fan experience at the Tony Awards Pop-Up Shop. Author and Broadway personality Seth Rudetsky will be joined by Broadway favorites Julia Murney (Wicked), Priscilla Lopez (In The Heights, the original cast of A Chorus Line), and more who will be reading excerpts from Seth’s Broadway Diary, on Wednesday, June 3 from 6 – 7:00 p.m. The Tony Awards Pop-Up Shop is located at the Paramount Hotel and is open daily to visitors.
Seth’s Broadway Diary is a compilation of Seth’s hilarious, Broadway-centric “Onstage and Backstage” columns for Playbill.com, chronicling his unique life on and around the Great White Way. Seth’s Broadway Diary is full of his personal Broadway experiences, such as going to the final performance and party for Rent, watching in terror as Jeff Bowen was dragged off the stage during [title of show] and the night he saw Spring Awakening and helped Jonathan Groff and Lea Michele break (-ish) the law. Plus, inside scoop on what it’s like performing with tons of fantastic stars like Rosie Perez, Andrea McArdle, Betty Buckley, Bernadette Peters and more.
“I love reading from Seth’s Broadway Diary with the actual celebrities who are featured in it. Especially because the stories about them are usually embarrassing and it’s fun to watch a Broadway star verbally recount something mortifying,” said Seth. “Furthermore, the Tony Awards are always so thrilling and I love that now there’s an entire store dedicated to them. My only devastation is that the store isn’t open all year. NOT cool.”
Seth Rudetsky’s Broadway Diary fan experience will take place on Wednesday, June 3rd from 6:00 – 7:00PM, and the Tony Awards Pop-Up Shop, located at the Paramount Hotel on 46th Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue. Seth Rudetsky will be signing books following the reading.
