After being shut out by the Tony Awards, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark plans to "repay the favor."
Producers of the record-breaking Broadway show announced today that "anyone with the first name Anthony, Tony, Antoinette, Toni, or Antonio" will be eligible to receive a free ticket to a special performance at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 10, the same day the Tony Awards air live on CBS.
"It has been brought to our attention that the Tonys have been honoring Broadway for years, and we thought it was about time to repay the favor," producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris said in a joint statement. "Nothing would make us prouder than to have more Tonys than any other show on Broadway on Sunday, June 10."
