Description


Extraordinary American Theater Wing Antoinette Perry Award, commonly known as the ‘Tony,’ the medal measuring 2.75? in diameter and held in its original 8.25″ tall stand, presented by The League of New York Theatres and Producers for “Best Musical—Producer, Annie, For Distinguished Achievement in Theatre, 1977.” The front of the medal features the traditional symbolic dramatic masks raised in relief, encircled with the text, “Antoinette Perry Award.” The black base measures 3.75 x 3.75 and bears an affixed plaque engraved, “American Theatre Wing Tony Award.” In fine condition. The original Broadway show opened at the Alvin Theatre on April 21, 1977, and ran for nearly six years for a total of 2,377 performances. One of the most famous modern musicals, Annie featured the numbers ’Tomorrow’ and ‘It's the Hard Knock Life’—songs that have since been absorbed into the American cultural lexicon. It was nominated for eleven Tony Awards and won seven, highlighted by this most important commendation for Best Musical. While any original Tony Award would be sought after as an iconic piece of entertainment history, this example in particular—with its status as an accolade earned in the most important category by an indisputably classic musical, which has gone on to enjoy international success—is of the utmost desirability and worthy of any museum-quality collection.
