2010 TONY AWARDS

The 64th Annual American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards were earlier tonight, and Idina was in attendance as a presenter. She introduced the performance for nominated musical Ragtime, and brought her mother Helene as her guest as Taye is currently out of the country. You can download her red carpet interview with NY1, her on-air presentation, and view numerous photos of her in her amazing Carolina Herrera gown below.

JACKSONVILLE MEDIA + INTERVIEWS

Idina’s 2010 Symphony Tour officially kicked off last weekend in Jacksonville, Florida and lots of great photos from the show have been added to the Gallery. I’ll continue to add photos to the touring album throughout the year as photos are found, so check in now and then to see if there are updates. Super awesome updates will be announced on our Twitter. Click the thumbnails to view!

East coast blogger Jeannie of AtlanticBeachLife.com and her colleague Nick Lulli were the only press allowed backstage to interview Idina. She posted a great summary of the show on her blog (linked above) and was nice enough to allow her photos added to our gallery. You can watch Nick’s interview with Idina on YouTube.

Idina has returned to New York in preparation of her upcoming shows in Boston, and has been doing a miniature media circuit promoting her symphony tour and her participation in Glee.

GALLERY UPDATE

I know it’s been quiet here lately – I wish I had something to report, but I don’t! So in lieu of that, I’ll just point out some of the updates to the photo gallery that I’ve made in the last few weeks to try to tide us over in the quiet period. Click on the thumbnails to access the albums.

As always, you can view all the latest updates made to the gallery by clicking on the Last Uploads link on the gallery’s main page.

In other news, Taye has been giving a few interviews promoting Private Practice, and in one of them, he revealed that he and Idina love FOX’s Glee, and that Idina “would love” to guest star as Rachel Berry’s (Lea Michele) mother.
