Music from the Tony Awards! Wednesday, June 13, 2012
The 2012 Tony Awards Show was certainly a night of wonderful performances, from the opening with the cast of The Book of Mormon through to Neil Patrick Harris’ closing number! If you’re looking for more from your favorite shows, check out what’s currently available from Stanton’s for some of the big winning musicals:
Based on the 2006 movie of the same name, “Once” took top honors of the evening, with a total of 7 Tonys including “Best Musical.” Much of the music from the movie was also used in the stage musical, and you can enjoy playing all these songs, including “Falling Slowly,” from the Piano/Vocal/Guitar collection.
The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess
Winner of “Best Revival,” this new staging also garnered a Tony for Audra McDonald. You can still get the full vocal score from the opera or the vocal selections; there is also a new choral medley to honor the Broadway show. You may also enjoy a full-color, hardcover history of the opera: The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess: A 75th Anniversary Celebration.
“Newsies” took home Tony Awards for “Best Choreography” and “Best Original Score,” fully redeeming the box office failure of the 1992 movie. Coming soon is the Piano/Vocal/Guitar collection from the new Broadway musical, and the collection from the movie is still available. There is also a great choral medley and a single of “Seize the Day”which were published in the wake of the movie, but ring true to the excitement of the stage version!
Nice Work If You Can Get It
This new musical using the classic numbers from the Gershwin songbook won Tonys for “Featured Actor” Michael McGrath, and “Featured Actress” Judy Kaye. Although there is nothing new in print specifically based on this musical, many of the songs featured—including the title song—can be found in The Gershwin Song Collection (1931-1954).
