Deadlines Tony Award picks and predictions 2021: ‘Jagged Little Pill’ or ‘Moulin Rouge’? Hiddleston or Gyllenhaal? Elections in the most unusual year
Lauren Patten, who won the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Selected Role in a Musical for her role in Jagged Little Pill thanked her trans and non-binary colleagues for having taken a dialogue about her character Jo.
“I would like to thank my trans and non-binary friends and colleagues who have engaged me in difficult conversations that have been with me in dialogue about my character, Jo,” Patten said. “I think the future of the change we are going to see on Broadway stems from the kind of conversations that are full of honesty and empathy and respect for our common humanity. And I am so excited to see the action that comes from them and to see where it leads our future as theater artists in this country. ”
Jagged Little Pill author Diablo Cody won the Tony Award for Best Book in a Musical, but did not address the recent controversies.
The writing of Patten’s character drew criticism from trans and non-binary societies after the production revised the character named Jo from non-binary in a pre-Broadway staging to a gay cis-female character for Broadway. Manufacturers later apologized and outlined steps they plan to take to resolve the matter.
David Alan Grier won the Tony Award for Actor in a Prominent Role in a Play for his performance in A soldier’s leg, and Danny Burstein was then awarded the trophy for prominent actor in a musical for Red Mill!
Veteran stage actor Lois Smith won for her prominent role in the play Arven.
Red Mill! took the same quartet of major design awards in the musical categories: Scenic, Costume, Light and Sound Design.
