Tony Awards Visa Commercial
Time is getting closer to Broadway’s Biggest Night this evening….. The 74th Annual Tony Awards. Truly gonna be the ultimate party of celebrating the community we love and making up for all that lost time.
Little throwback to another one of our personal favorite TV commercials from Visa sponsoring the Tonys. In promotion for the 2000 Tony Awards, this 30 second commercial is truly a Broadway showstopper. Here is Tony Award winning legend Bebe Neuwirth as “Velma Kelly” in the long running revival of Chicago and a cast of some notable Broadway Characters from shows that were running on the Great Bright Way at the time performing a Broadway Flash mob themed edition of George and Ira Gershwin’s legendary standard I GOT RHYTHM before finding themselves at the Box Office to enter the Tonys. Notable productions represented in the commercial included…
the original Broadway production of Cats,
the recent 2000 revival of The Music Man,
and more.
We at New York Broadway Tours are so happy to celebrating this community we love’s triumphant comeback.
The 2020 / 2021 Tony Awards will be coming to you live from Broadway’s legendary Winter Garden Theatre tonight. It all starts at 7pm EST with Audra McDonald hosting actual ceremony of Awards via Paramount+. Immediately at 9pm EST, transfer to the CBS telecast as Leslie Odom Jr. hosts the 2nd half entitled BROADWAY’S BACK which will be a full concert event plus the revealment of the winning shows for BEST REVIVAL OF A PLAY, BEST PLAY, and BEST MUSICAL.
