“Every story, new or ancient, bagatelle or work of art, all are tales of human failing, all are tales of love at heart.”

On June 4, 2000, the 54th Annual Tony Awards were held in Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Nominated for five Tonys, the Walt Disney Theatrical produced musical Aida would go on and win four: Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for Heather Headley (Aida), Best Original Score (Music and Lyrics) Written for the Theater for Elton John and Tim Rice, Best Scenic Design for Bob Crowley, and Best Lighting Design for Natasha Katz.
