Andrew Rannells, Broadway Superstar, Tony Nominee (winner!?…I think so!)

As I’m writing this, I feel as if it’s Christmas Eve.  Tomorrow night the Tony Awards are on, and Andrew is nominated for Best Actor in a Musical (Book of Mormon, which is also up for Best Musical).

WOW!  Look at this pic (from of justjared.com)!  He’s rehearsing for the big night!

I grew up with Andrew in Omaha-we did several interesting community theatre productions together, along with working tech on an atrocious musical revue about the 1970’s one summer for extra cash.  We’ve had many magical and crazy adventures together that I cherish dearly 🙂

Andrew has worked beyond hard to get to where he is today.  There is no such thing as an overnight success…and that’s something we all need to remember…one of my favorite quotes, is one that my dad cut out of the Omaha World Herald for me, ages ago:

I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it, and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else; hard work and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t. – Lucille Ball

Hard work will get you everywhere…that and having amazing talent, personality, and the ability to care for others like Andrew does.

Finally I can actually really be excited about The Tony Awards this year!

I love you Andrew!  Along with millions of others! Yay!
