Since the nominations, the company has been busy collecting memorabilia from Broadway’s biggest stars, including Bryan Cranston, Idina Menzel, and Chris O’Dowd for a Tony Awards Time Capsule. Stars from the season’s biggest hits have generously contributed set props, scripts and even sentimental items to the Time Capsule and throughout the process Audemars Piguet has captured footage of those moments that will be used in a Chideo (charity + video). Four-time Tony Award winning actor Harvey Fierstein appears in a video introducing the project with a separate longer video capturing the behind-the-scenes moments and thoughts of the stars.
This longer video can be viewed with a tip jar at end of video for suggested donations. Funds raised will be donated to the Broadway League Foundation’s Family First Nights and the American Theatre Wing. The contents of the Audemars Piguet Tony Awards Time Capsule will be kept under the auspices of the American Theatre Wing and during an event celebrating the Tony Awards 75th Anniversary in 2021 will be opened revealing the contents.
Broadway fans are invited to view the Tony Awards Time Capsule while it is on display at the Audemars Piguet boutique, 65 East 57th Street, New York City, from May 22nd through June 9th.
