View Comments The New York Musical Theatre Festival honored Tony winner casey Nicholaw at its 2015 gala on November 15 at the Edison Ballroom. Among the many, many luminaries that came out to support the director/choreographer was Tony winner Beth Leavel, who appeared in (and won her trophy for) The Drowsy Chaperone, which was Nicholaw’s first Broadway directing credit. Nicholaw’s other directing credits include The Book of Mormon, Spamalot, Aladdin and Something Rotten! Nicholaw was greeted at the event by several of his former stars, including tony winner Victoria Clark (below); the two worked together on the Encores! staging of Follies. Congratulations, Casey!
