SHARE Chicago’s JAM Theatricals among big Tony winners

Kudos to partners Arny Granat and Steve Traxler of Chicago’s own JAM Theatricals for walking off with their eighth Tony Award at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

The duo was among the throng of producers happily leaping on the stage Sunday night as “Fun Home” won the top honor as best new musical of this year’s Broadway season. The show won a total of five Tonys.

Actually, JAM had a producing interest of some degree in five shows at this year’s Tonys — productions that had garnered a total of 40 nominations and took home eight trophies.

“Eight was our lucky number this year,” said Traxler with a chuckle Monday.
