At this past Sunday’s TONY Awards, ‘Bright Star’ was up for five awards (Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, Best Performance by an Actress, and Best Orchestrations) but failed to secure any statues given the dominance of Lin Manuel Miranda and his ‘Hamilton’ juggernaut. But as they say, even being recognized with a nomination has to count for something, right!?

You can check out the complete winners list for the 2016 TONY Awards HERE. And be sure to watch the clip below of Carmen Cusack’s fantastic performance of “If You Knew My Story” from the awards show below.
