The Tony Awards, held last night at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and aired on CBS, was a big success. This year, and for the third year in a row, Audemars Piguet hosted the Tony Awards Green Room backstage. In fact, Audemars Piguet customized a private retreat backstage at Radio City Music Hall for presenters and nominees; naturally, the space features four vitrines highlighting 12 Audemars Piguet watches.
To celebrate the Tony Awards, Audemars Piguet is also making a donation of $1,500 to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS for each of the Tony Award presenters who agree to have Audemars Piguet and the Tony’s tweet a photo of the presenter signing the Audemars Piguet clock. This Audemars Piguet Tony Awards Clock will be auctioned off –along with seven other one-of-a-kind aluminum wall clocks — after the show to help raise funds for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
The eight one-of-a-kind clocks were displayed along the red carpet tonight, and were decorated by the nominees for Best Musical and Best Musical Revival (Bring It On: The Musical, A Christmas Story The Musical, Kinky Boots, Matilda The Musical, Annie,
The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Pippin, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella ) to represent each one of this season’s musicals. A ninth clock was signed by nominated actors attending last month’s Meet the Nominees reception. The auction opens from June 10thth through June 24th on leading charity auction site, charity buzz.
