BOYS' BIG NIGHT OUT: And The Tony Goes To... Complete List of Winners


BOYS' BIG NIGHT OUT: And The Tony Goes To... Complete List of Winners

It was a huge night for Broadway shows about two distinctly different kind of boys -- The History Boys and Jersey Boys -- at last evening's 60th Annual Tony Awards. The History Boys proved the biggest victor throughout the presentation with six coveted awards in play categories including Best Play, while Jersey Boys scored four awards in musical categories including Best Musical.

The Drowsy Chaperone fans were likely disappointed, despite the fact that the completely original musical was awarded five Tonys including Best Original Score and Best Book. Winning two Tonys each, The Pajama Game and Awake and Sing! were the respective choices for Best Revival of a Musical and Best Revival of a Play.
