'Spider-Man' Gets Snubbed for Major Tony Awards, Gives People Named Tony Free Tix
By Diego James
Maybe the producers of Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark have more of a sense of humor than we thought. Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris, producers of the Broadway’s record breaking new show—which was also snubbed this Tony awards season (although there had been much speculation they would receive some noms) made an "unprecedented," according to a press release we received today, Tony-related announcement. The production, known for its high-flying aerial feats, will hold a special Tony Sunday performance at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 10, for which "anyone with the first name Anthony, Tony, Antoinette, Toni, or Antonio will be eligible to receive a free ticket."
“It has been brought to our attention that the Tonys have been honoring Broadway for years, and we thought it was about time to repay the favor,” Cohl and Harris said in a joint statement. They added, “Nothing would make us prouder than to have more Tonys than any other show on Broadway on Sunday, June 10.”
Now that's a class act, right?
