LEOPOLDSTADT'S Brandon Uranowitz Wins Tony for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play
Fourth time’s the charm! Brandon Uranowitz has won the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play for his fantastic performances as Nathan & Ludwig in Leopoldstadt. Uranowitz was crowned at the 2023 Tony Awards on the United Palace stage. He beat out fellow nominees Jordan E. Cooper for Ain’t No Mo’, Samuel L. Jackson for August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson, Arian Moayed for A Doll’s House, and David Zayas for Cost of Living.
Uranowitz made his Broadway debut in Baby It’s You! and has continued to be a New York stage staple ever since–appearing in An American in Paris, Falsettos, Prince of Broadway, The Band’s Visit, and Burn This. He has previously been nominated for three Tony Awards for his performances in An American in Paris, Falsettos, and Burn This. His screen credits include Here Today, The Kitchen, Stage Fright, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Fosse/Verdon, and more.
Set in Vienna, Leopoldstadt takes its title from the Jewish quarter. This passionate drama of love and endurance begins in the last days of 1899 and follows one extended family deep into the heart of the 20th century. Full of his customary wit and beauty, Stoppard’s late work spans fifty years of time over two hours.
