Block, The Cher Show, Best Leading Actor in a MusicalSantino Fontana, Tootsie, Best Leading Actor in a Play Block, who has had roles on “Homeland” and “Orange Is the New Black,” is one of three actresses to play the title character in the musical “The Cher Show.” She thanked “the goddess Cher for her life and legacy.”, Other winners included the legendary May, who took home her first ever Tony for best leading actress, playing the Alzheimer’s-afflicted grandmother in Kenneth Lonergan’s comic drama “The Waverly Gallery.”. It was the only win for “Tootsie.”, Another first-time winner was Block, who earned her Tony Award for playing a legend — Cher. The first acting award went to Celia Keenan-Bolger, who won for best featured actress in a play for her role as Scout in “To Kill a Mockingbird.” She noted that her parents read her the book when she was a child in Detroit and her grandparents had a burning cross put on their lawn because they helped African Americans. En el apartado de obras teatrales, el Tony a la mejor de la temporada se lo llevó «The Ferryman», mientras que el mejor actor fue Bryan Cranston («Network») y la mejor actriz Elaine May («The Waverly Gallery»). In her acceptance speech, Stroker declared that the award was for anyone with a disability “who has been waiting to see themselves represented in this arena — you are!”, Bryan Cranston secured his second best-actor Tony in five years, for his bravura performance as Howard Beale in director Ivo van Hove’s stage version of the 1976 movie satire “Network.” He also won in 2014, for his canny impersonation of President Lyndon B. Johnson in Robert Schenkkan’s “All the Way.”, “Finally, a straight old white man gets a break!” Cranston joked. Playwright Jez Butterworth’s “The Ferryman” was crowned best play. This new musical follows two intertwining love stories—that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife, Persephone—as it invites audiences on an epic journey to the underworld and back. The crowd at Radio City Music Hall erupted when Ali Stroker made history as the first actor in a wheelchair to win a Tony. Anaïs Mitchell’s Hadestown ruled the 73rd annual Tony Awards winning eight of the 14 awards they were nominated for including Best Musical and Best Direction of a Musical. Watch the cast of Hadestown — which took home eight Tonys, including Best Musical — perform “Wait for Me”: Now, for a little “Too Darn Hot” from Kiss Me, Kate: Hadestown is the first Broadway musical to feature a book, music and lyrics by a sole female writer (Mitchell) in more than 40 years. La pieza, que cuenta la historia reimaginada del mito griego de Orfeo y Euridice a ritmo de folk y blues, llegaba como principal favorita a la gran noche del teatro estadounidense y no decepcionó. A wildly reimagined “Oklahoma!” claimed the award for best musical revival (in a race with only one other contestant, “Kiss Me, Kate”), and Mart Crowley’s “The Boys in the Band” won for best play revival. Corden contó con el apoyo de numerosas estrellas, que se dieron cita en el Radio City Music Hall para presentar los premios, entre ellas Tina Fey, Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L. Jackson, Lucy Liu o Sara Bareilles. Block fue la mejor actriz, por «The Cher Show». Anaïs Mitchell accepts the award for original score for “Hadestown,” which made Tonys history by becoming the first production written and directed by women to win best musical. Soy la prueba, para todos aquellos soñadores, de que el sueño americano todavía está vivo, porque van a venir cambios», dijo en inglés. “Hadestown,” whose director, Rachel Chavkin, was among the night’s winners, is thick with atmosphere rather than plot; it will appeal, one suspects, to a narrower swath of theatergoers than a crowd-pleaser like “Ain’t Too Proud,” which outsells it, week after week.

When it came to the coveted Best Play and Best Musical categories the winners were "The Ferryman" by Jez Butterworth and "Hadestown" respectively. 8:17 PM PDT 6/9/2019 © 2020 The Hollywood Reporter Following productions off-Broadway, in Edmonton, Canada, and London, Hadestown premiered in previews on Broadway in March as a a folk-operatic retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth. NEW YORK — “Hadestown,” Anaïs Mitchell’s bluesy and stylish show based on a Greek myth about a smitten young man who tries to rescue his lover from hell, captured the grand prize at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, winning best musical and seven other trophies, for direction, score, lighting, sound, supporting actor, orchestrations and set design.

"If Hadestown stands for anything, it is that change is possible; that in dark times, spring will come again," she said. Stroker, paralyzed from the chest down due to a car crash when she was 2, won for featured actresses in a musical for her work in a dark revival of “Oklahoma!”, “This award is for every kid who is watching tonight who has a disability, who has a limitation or a challenge, who has been waiting to see themselves represented in this arena,” she said. Bertie Carvel won best featured actor in a play for “Ink.” He said he wished he could be with his mother, hospitalized in London: “I love you, mum.”, Oscar-winning director and producer Sam Mendes won his first directing Tony Award for guiding “The Ferryman” and the play earned Rob Howell two Tonys — for best play set designs and costumes. The awards cap a season that showed Broadway is in good shape. “Hadestown” other wins were for scenic design, sound design, lighting design and orchestrations.

Hadestown beat out fellow nominated productions Ain't Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations, Beetlejuice, The Prom and Tootsie. Just as the musical led this year's Tonys in nominations, it also came out on top in wins. The play nabbed three other Tonys, including one for director Sam Mendes. Otro de los discursos más celebrados fue el del colombiano Sergio Trujillo, ganador a la mejor coreografía por su trabajo en «Ain't Too Proud», que pidió esperanza a los inmigrantes. Turning to the cast of the last summer’s revival of “The Boys in the Band,” he joked: “I’m looking at Matt Bomer — and technically he and I are the same species.”, The season that concluded in late April was a middling one for new musicals. To add to that, Boys in the Band took home the trophy for Best Revival of a Play. The preternaturally cheeky Corden presided over a so-so opening salute to the obvious: that Broadway shows are presented live. Hadestown pits nature against industry, faith against doubt, and love against fear. Creado por la cantautora Anaïs Mitchell, que no tenía ningún vínculo con Broadway, el musical ha cautivado a Nueva York con su mezcla de mitología, historias de amor y problemas actuales como el cambio climático.
