Gettin' Hot n' Sweaty on Broadway

Tony Awards
Radio City Music Hall
June 5, 2005
5pm press call

from Girl With Camera...

...and the Tony Award for the Season's first hot as hell event goes to: Radio City! Considering how many people were there to cover the event, I thought the PR did a fairly decent job getting everybody set up in the pen..The marked spots were a great idea....however; can someone please explain why they think photographers are only 4 inches wide? The only thing better than being shoved into people like cattle, is being shoved into sweaty people for nearly 3 hours.....

It was also highly annoying, as usual, that they allowed riff raff to come down the red carpet while we were trying to shoot the real celebrities there....I don't think I got a single clear shot that didn't include some annoying person who can't get over the fact that they will never be famous, a PR person...oh, and I can't fail to mention the security guard who stood guard at a door right in front of a group of us...today was his shining moment because his crotch was included in about 20% of my photos....obviously it was vitally important for some unbeknownst reason to guard that stupid door at all costs....

The celebs weren't impressive, but considering it was a Broadway show event, I was pleased that someone a tad more famous than the Samantha Cole or Star Jones showed up....

What was up with Jeff Goldblum? He has some weird Frankenstein presence going on...but as he kept doing it, I wasn't so certain it wasn't for real....not to mention the interesting arrival of former lovers Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup....along with present (?) girlfriend Claire Danes...they all came separate but I'm sure that was a pleasant reunion....

Yup, it was all about sweat on the arrival line and all about pain in the pressroom...

Been a while since I had a greenhouse effect in my viewfinder... thanks Tony !!
