Description


Exceedingly desirable American Theater Wing Antoinette Perry Award, commonly known as the ‘Tony,’ measuring 2.75″ in diameter, engraved on the reverse: “The American Theatre Wing Presents to Mary Martin This Award for her Performance in ‘The Sound of Music,’ 1959–60.” The front of the medal features the traditional symbolic dramatic masks raised in relief, encircled with the text, “Antoinette Perry Award.” Presented in a soft cloth-lined display, believed to be original to Martin, to an overall size of 6 x 6. In fine condition, with some light tarnishing. Originally acquired from the estate of Martin’s son, actor Larry Hagman. Martin was one of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s darling actresses and cast as Maria von Trapp in The Sound of Music in the original Broadway production of the iconic musical, which opened on November 16, 1959. All together, the show took home six Tony Awards in 1960, including Best Musical. This award represents Martin’s third and final Tony win. An iconic piece honoring one of the most famous musicals of all-time.
