Quite a few past Berkeley Rep artists made appearances at last night’s Tony Awards. Colman Domingo, who performed at many Bay Area theatres and played Franklin in Passing Strange, was nominated for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical for Scottsboro Boys. Joshua Henry, who was in the ensemble of American Idiot, also received a nomination for Scottsboro Boys as Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical. Mark Wendland, who was the scenic designer for Master Class starring Rita Moreno, was nominated for his scenic design of The Merchant of Venice. But it was Brian Ronan, sound designer for American Idiot, who walked away with a Tony Award last night for Best Sound Design of a Musical for The Book of Mormon. He was also nominated for Anything Goes. Congratulations all!
