The Bridges of Madison County
Winning is nice—but especially twice. Here is a list of shows that snagged more than one statue last night at the Tony Awards.
Bartlett Sher is one of Broadway’s busiest directors. A Tony Award winner for the 2008 revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific, his current project is the eagerly anticipated new musical, The Bridges of Madison County, which begins previews Jan. 17 for a Feb. 20 opening night. A true man of the theater, Sher also enjoys a parallel career in opera, most notably at the Metropolitan Opera, where his productions of Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia (2006), Offenbach’s Tales of Hoiffman (2009), Rossini’s Le Comte Ory (2011) and, most recently, Nico Muhly’s Two Boys (2013) have opened to acclaim.
