Last Night's Parties: 65th Annual Tony Award Nominees Take Class Photo, NKOTB's Jordan Knight Releases New CD

by Mara Siegler · June 1, 2011

The 65 Annual Tony Award nominees got together for a class photo and lunch; Alina Cho hosted a fashion event at Valentino; Jordan Knight proved age really does matter with his CD  release of Let's Go Higher; Daphne Guinness hobbled on her impossibly tall shoes to Le Bain and more. Last Night's parties had their head in the clouds!

65th Annual Tony Awards Nominee Class Photo

Where: Intercontinental Hotel

Who Was There: Ellen Barkin, Neil Patrick Harris, Bobby Cannavale, David Schwimmer, Lily Rabe, Judith Light,  Joel Grey, Whoopi Goldberg

Other Details: Smile and say "Tony!" After giving the appropriate thanks for their nomination, the 65th class head to a lunch hosted by Julie White,  who won a Best Actress Tony for "The Little Dog Laughed." The News' theater critic, Joe Dziemianowicz, caught White literally limbering up, reports Gatecrasher. "I was water-skiing on Lake LBJ in Texas and I'm so sore," said White. She is also pulling for pal John Benjamin Hickey, who's nominated for "The Normal Heart." "We've been friends since we were 18. And by the way," she added, "he should have been nominated for his work in that play about those two big mean queens." We don't know much about that, but if we were to place  bet, it would be everything on Mormons.  [Via]

ALINA CHO Hosts a Luncheon at the Valentino New York Boutique in Support of Literacy Partners, Inc

Where: Valentino Boutique, 747 Madison Avenue

Who Was There: Nina Garcia, Adelina Wong Ettelso, Alina Cho, Lydia Fenet, Olivia Chantecaille

Other Details: CNN's Alina Cho hosted a fashionable get together at Valentino where ladies lunched and shopped for a good cause. Proceeds benefited Literacy Partners.

Jordan Knight's CD Release Concert

Where: Canal Room

Who Was There: Jordan Knight, Kat de Luna

Other Details: This is sad. New Kids On The Block former (present?) member Jordan Knight, formerly known in my middle school Trapper Keeper as "The Dreamy One," held his CD release for Let's Go Higher at Canal Room to little fanfare. Aging means never having your face plastered on the side of a lunchbox and matching thermos again.
