Last night was the 69th Tony Awards. I dunno if you managed to catch it but personally my attention was more focused on the NBA finals. That being said, some very prestigious accolades were given out to honor outstanding work in the theater, and Ruthie Ann Miles got to bring home some very nice hardware. Check out her speech for winning Featured Actress in a Musical in The King and I. (If you’re curious as to just what Ruthie is capable of, check out this clip)

The Lincoln Center Theater’s production of The King and I marks Miles’ Broadway debut, playing Lady Thiang, the head wife of the King of Siam. Her previous Off-Broadway credits include Here Lies Love, Avenue Q, Two by Two, The Roar of the Greasepaint and The Smell of the Crowd.
