The 2007 Tony Honors for excellence in the theatre given annually since 1990 to Broadway’s unsung heroes, who toil off stage, were presented at Tavern on the Green this past Tuesday. The honorees Gemze de Lappe, Neil Mazzella, Alyce Gilbert, and Seymour “Red” Press were feted at a festive luncheon ceremony hosted by Tommy Tune that featured a performance by Patti Lupone. The Honorees, whose names have been  in the fine print of your theater programs for decades, boast 150 years of collective experience in the business. Mr. Tune hailed them as “The virtual backbone of Broadway.” The Tony Honors are presented by The American Theatre Wing and The League of American Theatres and Producers.
