Stars & Supporters Tweet Their Excitement After Tony Nominations
When Bruce Willis and Mary-Louise Parker announced the 2015 Tony Award nominations on the morning of April 28, they made a bunch of thrilled Broadway stars jump for joy in their PJs (or at least, that's how we imagine it happening). After calling their moms and texting their friends, many of the nominees jumped on Twitter to share their excitement with the world. Take a look at what some of our favorite nominated performers had to say on social media.
