Tony Awards 2009 Winners

tony awardThe 2009 Tony Awards were held last night, and it seems that Broadway loves the story of a kid.

Billy Elliot, the musical based on the movie of the same name, was the big winner last night, taking home a whopping 10 statues.  This includes the odd fact that three boys (David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik, and Kiril Kulish) will share the award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical due to the rotation of the three through the performance.

Major kudos to Angela Lansbury for winning her fifth Tony for her performance in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit.
