TONY AWARDS 2011 Complete Set of Winners

The recently concluded TONY AWARDS for me, is by far one of the incredible nights among tony Awards history. I seriously had watch the whole episode of the Awards Night to see if Im just amazed with the appearance of Hugh Jackman and the comic stunt of Neil Patrick Harris. But really it was one of the best!

Live at the Beacon Theatre live from New York City, the awards ceremony which is the most celebrated and biggest night of theatre in America was nothing short of fabulous. Ranging from a hilarious host to prestigious performances, the 2011 Tony Awards shined.

I am surprised that The Book of Mormon took home 9 Tony Awards of the 14 it was nominated for! This includes Best Musical! The Book of Mormon also won the most Tony Awards for any musical. War Horse scored 5 Tony Awards including Best Play! War Horse scored the most awards over any other play at this year’s awards. Otherwise, the rest of the awards were spread out for the most part. One here and one there. However, The Normal Heart and Anything Goes did score 3 Tony Award wins each. But who else took home the rest of the nights awards and what awards did the big winners take home?
