Speaking of the theater, my cousin’s son Tyler Mount just won his second Tony Award. Tyler, a 2008 graduate of Montgomery High School, recently made history by becoming the youngest two-time Tony Winner and Olivier Winner in theatrical history. In recognition of co-producing the Broadway winning show for Best New Musical “Hadestown,” Tyler earned his second Tony Award. He won his first Tony Award in 2018 for his production work on “Once On This Island” which won Best Revival of a Musical. Earlier in April 2019, Tyler also won an Olivier Award in London, England for his work on the Winner for Best New Play, “The Inheritance.” Tyler is excited to announce that he will be instrumental in helping to bring “The Inheritance” to Broadway later this Fall.

Tyler is the co-creator and co-founder of the Marquee Channel, Broadway’s first free digital video network dedicated to providing the theater community high quality, engaging content with the stars and shows currently on Broadway. Focused on diversity, inclusivity and accessibility, the Marquee Channel offers a varied slate of custom content that appeals to anyone who loves the performing arts.
