Tony Award Winners

Sorry folks, I would have posted these results sooner, but I was running a senior Drama night at school last night, hence the day’s delay on publishing the winners at this year’s Tony Awards.

My personal triumph was seeing the fabulous August: Osage County win Best Play and Deanna Dunagan win Best Performance by a Leading Actress for her role as the matriarch in the same play. August definitely seemed the season standout for dramatic plays, capturing five Tony’s on the night and its win, in my opinion, was thoroughly deserved.
