Congratulations!

To Karen Olivo for winning a Tony for her portrayal of Anita in West Side Story.

From Entertainment Weekly :
BEST MOMENTS: KAREN OLIVO

WORST MOMENTS: WEST SIDE STORY
The dance-heavy production number, somewhat awkwardly shot, ended on a very shaky note — from the hit revival's talented Maria, Josephina Scaglione.

What makes one show so special? A variety of things.
