tony-walton-main-900x600

The one and only Tony Walton, one of Broadway’s most innovating and influential set designers, invites Rob and Kevin into his apartment to look back on his career which includes the Oscar, the Tony, the Emmy, and designing such musicals as the original A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, Golden Boy, The Apple Tree, Pippin, Chicago, Grand Hotel, Six Degrees of Separation, revivals of Anything Goes, Guys and Dolls, and such movies as Murder on the Orient Express, All That Jazz, and Mary Poppins!

 

Tony pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how a boy from London became the toast of Broadway, what it was like burgling Bob Fosse’s home, and why Julie Andrews helped propel him into the stratosphere of design titans.

 

Also, Tony shines the spotlight on George Abbott, Sammy Davis Jr, and Jerome Robbins!
