Buy tickets to Broadway shows
Tony Awards Statuette“Kinky Boots” was the big winner of the 67th annual Tony Award, scoring six Tonys including best musical and best leading actor Billy Porter. “Pippin” won best musical revival. “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf ” won  three of its five nominations, including best revival of a play, and, surprise selection, best leading actor, Tracy Letts, who won out in a category that included Tom Hanks and Nathan Lane. “Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike” won Christopher Durang his first Tony for best play.  “Matilda” won just four awards out of its 12 nominations, most craft awards, although Gabriel Ebert did win best featured actor. The “Nance” did surprisingly well, winning three of its five nominations.

Much remarked upon: The 2013 Tony Awards seemed to be the Year of the Woman. Both directing awards went to women, and Cyndi Lauper was the first woman to win for the best score Tony without being in a songwriting team with a man. And, another milestone,  half  the acting awards were won by African-American performers.
