Announcer: Please welcome a Tony-winning actor who’s returning to New York in Equus later this year, along with a co-star who will make his Broadway debut: Richard Griffiths and Daniel Radcliffe.
Daniel: While playwrights experience the joy of sharing their truth with the world, actors are the mere vessel for their vision. Our job is to service the playwright’s words and bring life to the characters they create.
Richard: The playwright’s art has the power to unite the audience in a spirited experience that promotes passion, thought, discussion and change. The results can be magical and life-altering.
Daniel: Once again, the nominees for Best Play are: August: Osage County, Rock’n’Roll, The Seafarer, The 39 Steps.
Richard: And the winner is… (*has trouble opening envelope*) This is fab, isn’t it?
(Dan helps Richard with the envelope)
Richard: Thank you. As if by magic…
Richard: Come on, come on, today (*taps his watch*). And the Tony goes to August: Osage County!
