Best actress nominee Cristin Milioti wowed the Tony audience Sunday night with this beautiful, vibrant green strapless gown by Jason Wu.
Milotti, a native of Cherry Hill, may not have won the Tony for best actress in a musical - that award went to Audra McDonald who won for her role in Gershwin's Porgy and Bess - but she definitely should have won best dressed of the night. (Local theater-goers remember her performances at Cherry Hill High School East.)
Colleague Howie Shapiro had this to say about Milioti's on stage performance:
It was a revelation to hear Cristin Milioti speaking in her native Cherry Hill English. Milioti plays a young Czech immigrant in the musical Once and speaks with such a convincing accent, you'd think she was born to it. For her role in that show, she's nominated as best actress in a musical.
