"Given the limited seating at the Beacon Theatre, where this year’s Tony ceremony was held, most of the 27-member ensemble watched the awards at a viewing party at the hotel, so they were suitably oiled and ready to revel by the time nominees and winners joined them after the show.
'Anne Garefino loves to throw a party and she threw a damn good one,' said a rep for the production, speaking about the South Park executive producer who shares lead producer duties on Mormon with Scott Rudin.
The party occupied the entire floor and spilled onto an outdoor deck, with a DJ mixing dance tunes for some 200 guests who celebrated until after 4:30 a.m. A giant projection of the already iconic Book of Mormon logo (featuring a doorbell and an airborne missionary) was splashed across the façade of the building opposite.
Garefino probably chose the right place. While the Ace Hotel has been known to host well-attended events in the past, their wide-open lobby bar is less private, less ritzy, and, frankly, much less gay. During a post-ceremony interview with Parker and Stone, the duo confessed their next move after the big win was to "probably start drinking a lot more."
Sounds like they made that goal a reality.
