Calling fellow Ehle/Broadway/Coast of Utopia/Stoppard fans! We at the Jennifer Ehle blog are running an online chat for the Tony Awards to cheer on Jennifer Ehle, who is a Tony nominee for Best Featured Actress in Tom Stoppard's trilogy The Coast of Utopia. It's on this Sunday June 10 starting 6.30pm US EST (see your time zone). The awards themselves are on at 8pm, but we're starting early to catch the red carpet webcast. The onstage action will only be telecast on CBS. Luckily for non-US people, there's plenty of backstage web coverage at the Tonys site during the ceremony as well.
Utopia received 10 nominations all up, including Best Play, Director (Jack O'Brien), Lead Actor (Brian F O'Byrne) and Featured Actor (Billy Crudup & Ethan Hawke). Martha Plimpton was nominated in Ms Ehle's category.
