Thanks to Sam Blair, retired counselor at Central High, for noting a local angle during last night’s Tony Awards show.

“The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess” won the award for best musical revival.

Among those trooping to the stage for the award was an associate producer, Will Trice, son of Bill and Judy Trice and a 1997 graduate (along with my daughter) of Central High. Song and dance runs in the family.
