During the administration of President George W. Bush, news that Tony was to be heavily represented at a fete in the East Room of the White House would have suggested a British theme to the evening, with emissaries of then-Prime Minister Blair in attendance.
Times have changed. On Monday, the dignitaries hosted by President and Mrs. Obama will bring their regards from Broadway, not 10 Downing Street, while sharing talents that collectively have won them 11 Tony Awards.
The public is invited to watch — eventually — on “A Broadway Celebration,” which will be taped for broadcast Oct. 20 as an installment in the PBS series, “In Performance at the White House.”
