The Tony Awards: Part 2 Inside The Tony Awards and The Rest of The Winners

Upsets were plentiful, and the winners continued to surprise. Kevin Spacey was the host who actually made the audience laugh. Please ask him back. Bravo for getting A Bronx Tale and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. Those we lost brought back to mind Carrie Fisher, Dick Latessa, Tammy Grimes, Gary Marshall, Edward Albee, Jack Hoffis, Mary Tyler Moore, Martha Swope and so many others. Best speach ever goes to the Divine Ms. M who kept it real.

*Best Play

Lynn Meadows stated; “Finally Jitney on Broadway and it wins a Tony. The reason it was not considered a new play is that it played off Broadway, then Town Hall and finally in London. There is a new category that allows for shows like this not to get caught in the Best Play category.
