History is definitely happening in Manhattan!
Hamilton won 11 Tonys, including Best Musical, out of their record-breaking 16 nominations. Sadly, they fell short of tying with The Producers’ record of 12, but hey did win more than Billy Elliot’s record of 12.
Also, for the first time in Tony history, the four major categories for actors in musicals were won by people of color! Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry and Daveed Diggs showed us that Broadway is starting to have more diversity.
