“The televised Tony Awards matter most because they give every kid I’ve ever worked on a show with, every kid I’ve ever taught, every kid I’ve ever directed, every kid I’ve ever shared a stage with, and every other theater kid in every other town in America, something to dream about when they go to bed at night.”

What do you think about this piece? Given that the Tonys are becoming more and more Hollywood-laden, does that refute the writer’s argument that the Tonys differ from the Oscars because it shows that every kid can achieve his/her dreams?
