The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing are feeling the heat after they neglected to include Bob Saget in the In Memoriam segment of Sunday Night's 75th Annual Tony Awards.
While Broadway may not be the first thing we think of when we think of Bob Saget, as the late comic actor's good friend and Full House co-star John Stamos tweeted, he appeared twice The Great White Way, and apparently held the community close to his heart.
Disappointed to hear that @bobsaget will be LEFT OUT of the In Memoriam segment tonight @TheTonyawards. Bob was brilliant in The Drowsy Chaperone & Hand to God. Come on @BroadwayLeague and @TheWing ! Do the right thing! Bob loved Broadway and I know the community loved him.— John Stamos (@JohnStamos) June 12, 2022
The In Memoriam segment featured William Hurt, Sidney Poitier, Peter Scolari, Robert Morse, Joan Didion, Stephen Sondheim, among others.
Saget, who died on January 9, made his Broadway debut in 2007 in The Drowsy Chaperone. He returned in 2015 in Hand to God.
