The guest list for an exclusive Tonys after-party at the swanky Carlyle Hotel was vastly reduced this year because last years bash was too debauched.
Every year, A-listers congregate in upstairs suites after the Broadway awards ceremony, as others party at Caf Carlyle and Bemelmans Bar below but the hotel told organizers to keep the affair much smaller this time around.
Last year, a beloved male producer took a header in the Royal Suite and smashed into the wall, shattering some very valuable Venetian glass, DKC/O&M head Rick Miramontez tells us. The hotel was ultimately understanding about the incident, but we did reluctantly agree to a reduced capacity in the suites. Luckily, the Caf Carlyle has almost no breakable antiques, so we are still able to pack that venue to the gills!
After Sundays ceremony, the party for Miramontezs firm which featured a disco, dubbed the Orpheus Room, in reference to hit Tony winner Hadestown brought in guests including Ryan Murphy, Adam Driver, Scott Rudin, Baz Luhrmann, Laurie Metcalf, Elaine May and Darren Criss, who got on the piano to belt out Elton Johns Tiny Dancer.
