Ridgewood’s Ali Stroker Nominated for a Tony

Ali Stroker has raised the bar again. She and fellow cast member, Damon Daunno, were both nominated for Tonys for their roles in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!. Stroker, who plays Annie Ado, is nominated for a Tony for featured actress in a musical. Playing at the Circle in the Square Theater, Oklahoma! is also nominated for a total of 8 Tonys, including best revival of a musical.

In the New York Times, Stroker reacted to her nomination, “This show exists for people to see things different. And to be able to do this role — and to be an actress in a wheelchair — it feels like I have arrived.”

 The Tonys will be held on June 9th, and we are rooting hard for our homegrown Broadway star.
Check out Ali performing Annie’s signature song on Jimmy Fallon Live.
Warning: It will make you want to run out and see the show.
