For the fourth time in three consecutive years, Fordham Theatre alumnus John Johnson, FCLC ’02, has taken home a Tony Award. He received his latest honor Sunday night, as executive producer of Skylight, which earned the award for best revival of a play. (He also was nominated in the same category, as executive producer of This Is Our Youth, joining other members of the Fordham family who received Tony and other major theater award nominations this year.)
Throughout the live broadcast of the 69th Tony Awards, several Fordham alumni and students performed in medleys from the Broadway shows in which they appear: Kristine Covillo, FCLC ’05, and PCS student Megan Fairchild (On the Town); Taeler Cyrus, FCLC ’08 (An American in Paris); Drew King, FCLC ’09 (On the Twentieth Century); and FCLC student Melanie Moore (Finding Neverland).
