Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming hosted the 2015 Tony Awards, and Fun Home and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time took home five awards each.

2015 Tony Awards Recap

Chenoweth and Cumming, both Tony award winners, started the show with a timely message – “Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and those of you who don’t identify as either,” Cumming greeted the audience.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was the big play winner, taking home the Tony Award for Best Play, and earning its young British star, Alex Sharp, the Tony for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play. Sharp, a Broadway newbie, graduated from Julliard last May and won over Hollywood names Bradley Cooper and Bill Nighy. Fellow Brit, Helen Mirren, won the Tony Award for Leading Actress in a Play.

Fun Home, which, like Curious Incident, is a sort of coming of age story about a main character who feels different, took home five awards in the Musical category, including Best Musical and Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for Michael Cerveris.

The King and I took home four awards: Best Revival of a Musical, Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Kelli O’Hara, Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role for Ruthie Ann Miles (who also delivered one of the most charming speeches of the night) and Best Costume Design in a Musical for Catherine Zuber.

Of course the night also featured performances by the Broadway casts of On The Twentieth Century, The Visit, Gigi, An American In Paris, Finding Neverland, Something Rotten and It Shoulda Been You.
