Yesterday's Tony Awards press event took place only 24 hours after the initial nominee announcement, and the glowing nominees were still riding the high. TheaterMania spoke to featured-role nominees/ besties Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and Nick Cordero (Bullets Over Broadway) about their shared excitement, celebrated with dashing Leading Actor nominee Ramin Karimloo (Les Misérables), and indulged in Leading Actor nominee Jefferson Mays' advice to his two young costars.
