Clybourne Park, the dark comedy about race and real estate, and Once, the Dublin-set musical that uses actor-musicians to tell its love story, were named Best Play and Best Musical, respectively, at the 2012 Tony Awards ceremony on June 10.
The 66th annual awards that celebrate excellence in the Broadway theatre were held at the Beacon Theatre (technically not a Broadway house) on the Upper West Side.
Revivals of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman and Porgy and Bess by George and Ira Gershwin and DuBose and Dorothy Heyward, also won Tonys as Revival of a Play and Revival of a Musical, respectively.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
