Flashback Friday: Nina Arianda Defies The Send-Off Music While Accepting Her First Tony

"I might not do this again - hold on," said the actress, who opened her in third Broadway show last night.

In 2012, Nina Arianda won her first Tony Award for playing the role of Vanda in David Ives' Venus in Fur. When Arianda took the stage at the Beacon Theatre to accept her award, she began giving a heartfelt speech (kicked off by a little light flirting with Christopher Plummer), but things got dicey when when the orchestra started to play her off.

"I might not do this again!" hollered the actress, which was not to say she wouldn't be back on Broadway. Arianda returned to the Great White Way last night, starring opposite Sam Rockwell in Sam Shepard's Fool for Love.
