Rock the Tonys With Acting Up Stage Co. this Sunday

Acting Up Stage Company, one of Toronto’s most exciting theatre troupes, is celebrating this year’s Tony Awards this Sunday night at The Friar Firkin pub at 160 John St.

The free tickets are gone, but there may be some cancellations.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the telecast on The Friar’s big screen begins at 8 p.m.  There will be special prizes.


Mitchell Marcus, host and Acting Up’s Artistic and Managing Director, can’t wait.  “It’s my Super Bowl or Stanley Cup or whatever other kinds of sporting event that makes straight men slap each other on the back and yell expletives at the top of their lungs.”  Mitchell, I think they’re called “Heterosexual Pride Day.”

Among Mitchell’s top five Tony hopes, listed in his blog posted onwww.actingupstage.com, is his hope to see Stratford vet (“Jesus Christ Superstar”) and Randolph Academy grad Paul Nolan  perform in a number from the nominated Steve Martin/Edie Brickell musical “Bright Star.” “We miss him in Toronto and it’s always a thrill to see Canadians on the telecast.”

Mitchell admits he’s excited to greet all of his company’s Tony party guests, with reservations: “I am a little bit nervous about trying to being a gracious host, while stifling my desire to yell `Shut up!’ every time someone clinks their glass by accident.  I will do my best, I promise.”
