Boston Conservatory at Berklee Professor Eric Cornell Wins Tony for 'Oklahoma!'

June 11, 2019 Tori Donahue

Boston Conservatory at Berklee faculty member Eric Cornell took home a Tony Award on Sunday night as coproducer of the revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic Oklahoma!. Cornell joined the Conservatory faculty in August 2018, where he developed a course on the business of acting for fourth-year musical theater students.
 
Oklahoma! received the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, one of the biggest prizes of the night, while the show’s Ali Stroker landed a historic win for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical—a standout moment of the ceremony.
 
In addition, a number of Boston Conservatory at Berklee and Berklee College of Music alumni contributed to many of the year’s Tony Award–winning shows, including Hadestown, Ink, Tootsie, The Cher Show, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Ain’t Too Proud.
