    Angelina Jolie, who produced ‘The Outsiders: A New Musical‘, just won her first Tony Award and it’s a big victory for the actress.

    It was Jolie’s 15-year-old daughter, who had persuaded her mother to see a production of the musical in La Jolla, California, that brought her to the Tony Awards stage on Sunday. Both Jolie and Vivienne Jolie provided notes on the popular Broadway version.
    The Outsiders takes place in Tulsa, 1967, and tells the tale of Ponyboy Curtis, 14 years old, his two brothers, and closest buddy Johnny, who together make up the Greasers, a rival gang of wealthy people who they must overcome in order to survive.

    Talking about Vivienne’s contribution to the show, Jolie said, “My daughter Viv loves theatre. She appreciates all theatre but she certainly knows what she feels close to and what she responds to.” Jolie added that her and Vivienne “went to see The Outsiders at La Jolla about five times and was telling me about it, and I had read the book, and I’d seen the film years ago.”

    She added, “It was a very different experience of understanding, of how this is having a significant effect on her as a young person right now, and she’s communicating something to me, and that is the power of this material, and then I had the privilege of watching everyone work over this last year to make it into what it is, and Vivienne has been there the whole way.”
