A bit of Binghamton on Tony nominees list

Long ago I realized that Binghamton is divided into two types of people: those who worry about living only three hours from NYC and those who are grateful that they only have to travel three hours to get to NYC.

For the latter group, a Broadway note: The May 4 announcement of the 2010 Tony Awards nominees was headed by an 11-nomination tie between the revival of “La Cage aux Folles” and “Fela!,” the story of the legendary Nigerian musician Fela Kuti. Among those 11 nods for “Fela!” were two — best choreography and best direction of a musical — for 2007 Tony winner Bill T. Jones, who studied both theater and dance at the State University of New York at Binghamton (now Binghamton University).

Stay tuned, as they say; the awards ceremony is 8 p.m. June 13 on CBS.
