Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role â€” A tie!
Blind Brook, â€œFiddler on the Roof,â€ Andrew Benowich (Tevye)
and Pleasantville, â€œFiddler on the Roof,â€ Anthony da Costa (Tevye)
Two Tevyes, two HSTAs. What are the odds.
They also got their awards from Terrence Mann. Too cool.
I thought the kids from Blind Brook were going to tear the place down, they were so happy.
Andrew hushed them and thanked them. “You guys were great, some of the best people I’ve ever worked with.â€ And he thanked director Christina Colangelo. “I share this with her.”
Next up was Anthony da Costa.
I thought Blind Brook was loud until Pleasantville erupted.
Da Costa said “Thank you,” as Tevye.
â€œThank you, Mr. Mann. That was awesome. I’m glad they didn’t judge this on facial hair authenticity. And I’d like to thank the local barbers for their contribution.’
