Billy Elliot Leads Tonys

No champagne at the parties after last night’s Tony Awards: Some of the winners were children. Billy Elliot won 10 awards last night, including best musical. The three young actors who share the lead role of Billy Elliot also shared the Best Actor in a Musical award. Despite Billy Elliot’s big night, The New York Times notes, “This year’s awards were spread around evenly for the most part, with 14 shows receiving at least one Tony.” Other winners include Geoffrey Rush for Best Actor in a Play for Exit the King and God of Carnage for Best Play.
