MISSING: Tony Winners Who Haven't Been Back
Okay, to be fair, some don't come back because they've returned to their home country. Others secure long-term and lucrative gigs on television and film. And many of those keep a toe in the Broadway pond with theater-related side jobs. Eventually, though it can be several years, many do come back. Look at Karen Olivo - she finally returned to the Main Stem this season in Moulin Rouge! following a full decade of absence after her Tony win for West Side Story. So there is still hope for the nine folks on the list below. All of them won Tonys over the 2000 - 2014 seasons, and have yet to return. (We figure it's reasonable to take a 5 year break to do other things.) Fingers crossed that they all make a return and soon!
