“Jagged” won the award for Best Book by Diablo Cody and Best Featured Actress, Lauren Patten, who electrifies audiences with her breathtaking rendition of “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette. Patten’s performance is the subject of some controversy, as some fans had perceived the character as non-binary in a pre-Broadway production and were not happy with the evolution of the role; the show’s producers said the character was “on a genre-expanding journey with no known result.” In her acceptance speech, Patten thanked “my trans and non-binary friends and colleagues who engaged with me in difficult conversations and joined me in a dialogue about my character.”

Among the multiple awards won by “Moulin Rouge” were a first Tony for director Alex Timbers and an eighth record for costume designer Catherine Zuber. Show frontman Aaron Tveit won for the first time, in an unusual way – he was the only nominee in his category, but needed the support of 60% of those who voted in the category to win , what he got. He cried as he thanked the nominators and voters.

“Let us continue to strive to tell stories that represent the many and not the few, by the large number and not the few, for the large number and not the few,” he said. “Because what we do changes people’s lives. “

None of the nominees for Best Musical had an original score, so for the first time this award went to a play – Jack Thorne’s new adaptation of “A Christmas Carol”, which featured music composed by Christopher Nightingale. This sparkling production, from the Old Vic in London, also won the award for stage design, costume design, lighting design and sound design.

There was no better category of musical cover this year, because the only one that opened before the pandemic ”,West Side StoryWas not seen by enough voters either. It was also not seen by many spectators: Its producers have decided not to reopen it.

A production of “A soldier’s game, Directed by Kenny Leon and produced by the nonprofit Roundabout Theater Company, won the Tony for Best Replay. The play, a 1981 drama by Charles Fuller, is about the murder of a black sergeant in the US military; it won the Pulitzer Prize when it was first published and was later adapted into a Hollywood movie, but it didn’t make it to Broadway until 2020.

The production starred Blair Underwood and David Alan Grier. Grier won the first prize of the evening, for the best star actor in a play.
