Sunday evening is the Tony Awards, so I'll remind you one last time that the best place in town to see them is at Paul Brown Stadium. No, not on the 50-yard line, but in the East Club Room, where ENSEMBLE THEATRE OF CINCINNATI hosts its fifth annual TONY AWARDS LIVE BROADCAST PARTY starting at 6 p.m. It's one of the most enjoyable fund-raisers staged by any theater in town: You get cocktails, food from Broadway-themed buffets and a dessert bar -- then a big-screen view of the Tony broadcast, live from New York City. There are always a lot of excellent silent auction items with an emphasis on local arts and culture. This year is the 60th anniversary of the Tonys, so it's bound to be a special evening. Show up and rub elbows with some of Cincinnati's finest performers, not to mention others important in the life of our city, including Mayor Mark Mallory and Vice Mayor Jim Tarbell. Tickets are $150, but if that's too much you can pay $25 and come for dessert and the broadcast. Info: 513-421-9453.

Another Tony option on Sunday evening is at the Universal Grille (formerly Hamburger Mary's, 911 Vine St., Downtown), where the broadcast has become an annual tradition. This year it's an event to support the GLBT community after Sunday's Pride Alive parade and festival, in addition to marking the conclusion of the 2006 FRINGE FESTIVAL.

This year it's an event to support the GLBT community after Sunday's Pride Alive parade and festival, in addition to marking the conclusion of the 2006 FRINGE FESTIVAL. Pre-broadcast will feature entertainment from KNOW THEATRE TRIBE members performing Tony tunes from the present and past seasons. A portion of the proceeds go to Know, but Artistic Director Jason Bruffy (who also helms the Fringe) stresses that the party is free for Fringe audiences, artists and volunteers -- and he mentions, "We will be stopping by our sister company's party as well" at the stadium.

This summer (June 29-July 22) New Stage Collective (NSC) will present THE FULL MONTY, a musical about average guys who bare it all to make ends meet. NSC is promoting the show and raising money for a charity with an 18-month calendar, "STRIPPED: The Nude Charity Calendar," featuring the show's cast who were inspired by striking members of the Armco Employees Independent Federation (AEIF) in Middletown. The idea for the calendar stemmed from a visit by The Full Monty's cast to picket lines at AK Steel in March for character research. It will be tasteful, a news release assures (cast members will appear in "stylized, 'in-character' nude photographs, shot by actor/photographer Dan Davidson, with well-placed props covering certain unmentionables") and for a worthy cause: 20 percent of the proceeds will go to Abilities First Middletown, a charity selected by the members of AEIF.

Two years ago the Cincinnati Playhouse had a magical night at the Tonys when they picked up their award as America's outstanding regional theater. They'll be in the magic business again later this summer with their 16th annual ABRACADABRA, an annual magic showcase raising important big bucks for the city's largest professional theater. The lineup for August blends new artists and returning favorites: John Carney, a sleight-of-hand magician, and his alter ego, Mr. Mysto; Kohl & Company, a world-renowned comedy magic act; and David Williamson, a native of Xenia who wowed audiences at Abracadabra last year. There's a discounted preview on Aug. 17, the gala Friday evening fund-raiser on Aug. 18 (tickets, $250, can be purchased by calling 513-421-3888) and public performances on Aug. 19-20. Call the Playhouse box office for the latter: 513-421-3888. ...

Also coming up at the Playhouse is an interesting class on June 26 presented by actress ANN RANDOLPH, currently starring in Squeeze Box. For $40, you can spend a Monday evening (6:30-10 p.m.) in a writing workshop with Randolph to learn how she turned events of her life into theater. The actress and writer, who grew up in Loveland, calls her class "Sharing Your Life Story." Info: 513-421-3888.
