I am through being a lonely theater geek, locking myself in my bedroom and shushing non-interested family members throughout the Tony Awards broadcast! This year, I’ve decided to throw myself a party. The biggest Tony Awards Party in town. And I want you to come!
Join DC Metro Theater Arts and TodayTix at Penn Social on Sunday, June 9th for a bacchanalian revelry of theater-loving goodness. Watch the Tony Awards broadcast live while sipping Broadway-themed cocktails and competing in theater trivia contests during the commercial breaks.
Can’t decide if you want to leave the comforts of home? Here are eight reasons why hanging with us for the Tonys is the right choice:
Let Your Freak Flag Fly: Grab your friends and geek out with hundreds of like-minded theater lovers. Will Stephanie J. Block finally bring home a Tony? Was George Salazar totally robbed of a nomination this year? (Duh, he was so robbed!)
Go Big or Go Home: Penn Social, DC’s go-to social spot for televised events, features one 22-foot projection screen and seven nine-foot screens. You will literally be surrounded by screlting!
Fill Out Your Bracket: Each guest will receive an official Tony Awards Voting Ballot before the show begins. Make your predictions and compare results with friends throughout the night. (No one can predict who will win best lighting design in a play like you, my friend.)
Enjoy Broadway-Themed Drinks: Indulge your sweet tooth with a Tootsie-Pop, or walk on the wild side with a Hadestown-inspired Road to Hell.
Test Your Theater I.Q.: Each commercial break will feature a two-minute theater trivia quiz. Do you have what it takes to impress your friends and win tickets to some of DC’s best theaters?
Win Tickets to Great Shows: We’ve partnered with six amazing DC theaters to give away tickets to trivia contest winners. Guess correctly and you could go home with free tickets to Signature Theatre, Shakespeare Theatre Company, Woolly Mammoth or more.
Feel Cool with TodayTix: TodayTix is our official ticketing partner, which means this event will have that special TodayTix touch and one lucky guest will go home with a $50 TodayTix gift card.
It’s the only game in town! As far as we know, this is DC’s only official Tony Awards Party. So party with us, or hang out in your Aunt Gertrude’s basement.
