Not since David Merrick has a 'stunt' like this ever been pulled on Broadway... Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris, producers of SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark, today made a special, unprecedented Tony-related announcement in response to the show's receipt of only two Tony nominations. The high flying production will hold a special Tony Sunday performance at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 10, for which anyone with the first name Anthony, Tony, Antonio, Antoinette, Toni, or Antonia 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.”
Eligible members of the public are invited to come to the Foxwoods Theatre Box Office (213 W. 42nd Street) beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, June 4. The first 100 attendees will be given a coupon for a pair of tickets to the 3:00 p.m. matinee on Sunday, June 10.
