2013 Tony Award winners, with highlights

View Comments(0)

In case you were unable to catch last night's Tony Awards, it's not like you missed anything big... only Neil Patrick Harris doing a duet with Mike Tyson. (Yeah, that Mike Tyson.) And NPH jumping through a hoop (literally). And doing some kind of cheerleader gymnastics. And a magic trick. You know, typical Tony-opening-number stuff, and further proof that Neil Patrick Harris is wonderful.

"Kinky Boots," (which featured songs by Cyndi Lauper) won the most awards with six, while "Matilda the Musical" and "Pippin" won four, and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "The Nance" nabbed three.

A full list of winners, as well as some clips from the show, can be found after the cut. (And, for a peek at the acceptance speeches, The Tonys YouTube channel has already uploaded most of them!)

Is it May already? This month, concert festivals really kick it into high gear, and many artists launch their summer tours. The NBA Playoffs are under way, and now that the weather is nicer, it's time for the The Players Championship.

Although no new Broadway shows are opening this month, many will likely flock to see the productions recently nominated for Tony Awards, including Pippin and I'll Eat You Last.
