Broadway League gets sweet at Tonys bash

Stage celebrates best of the year

Other entertainments have held an afterparty at the Plaza Hotel, but not like this. The Broadway League didn’t just rent out the ballroom for its post-Tonys bash, it commandeered most of the hotel. In fact, the gala was so sprawling and multi-leveled that guests were given maps of the three stories of entertainment. Hungry attendees were fast-walking after a long ceremony as if on “Amazing Race” to find the shortest food line: One bar was nothing but tomatoes of all sizes and descriptions; another presented dumplings as far as the eye could see.

The top floor featured dancing, with the band offering everything from Lady Gaga to Four Seasons tunes.

“Motherfucker with the Hat’s” Elizabeth Rodriguez accepted kudos on her nom from a roster of admirers, including Alec Baldwin. Rodriguez, in turn, congratted “Book of Mormon’s” Nikki M. James on her win.

Rob Marshall accepted congrats for his “Pirates” success and for sister Kathleen Marshall’s double wins for “Anything Goes,” while “Lombardi’s” Judith Light huddled with “Mormon’s” Andrew Rannells.
