One Remark

    Warren W. Spencer says:

    Lily Tomlin he eponymous Julie Harris Award honoree for 2019 is such a good choice by the Tonys. Not only because of each their own talents as performers but also because of them both hailing from Michigan (Ms. Harris a Grosse Pointe Parker; Ms. Tomlin a Detroiter). And, for such a good cause — the Actors Fund.
