SIX Becomes A Tony Award Winning Musical!

Author ScarletScarlet, June 13th, 2022

The 75th Annual Tony Awards have been and the celebrations are in full swing!

Does Henry VIII have a Tony Award? No? Well the Queens of SIX do! At the 75th Annual Tony Award ceremony, the Olivier Award winning musical become a two-time Tony Award winning musical. The high-octane concert-style show, which tells the story of Henry's six wives from their perspective, graciously accepted the awards for Best Costume Design of a Musical and Best Original Score!

The ferociously pungent hit A Strange Loop was set up for success with 11 Tony-nominations under their belt. They ended up winning two prizes, Best Book of a Musical and the coveted Best Musical Tony Award.

Even though its run ended in January, The Lehman Trilogy was awarded with five of its eight nominations. Written by Stefano Massini and adapted by Ben Power, The Lehman Trilogy received the Tony for Best Play, Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play, Best Direction of a Play, Best Lighting Design of a Play and Best Scenic Design of a Play.

Company was also the talk of the night, with Patti LuPone receiving her third Tony and her first for a featured role. The musical also took home Best Revival of a Musical, Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical and Best Scenic Design of a Musical.

The stand-out jukebox musical MJ, which received mixed reviews from critics and audience members, held its own at the Tony Awards proving why it should be amongst the stars with Ain't Too Proud and Jersey Boys. Myles Frost was awarded with Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, along with MJ earning the Best Choreography award, Best Sound Design of a Musical and Best Lighting Design of a Musical.

The Girl from the North Country, Paradise Square, Skeleton Crew and The Skin of Our Teeth also didn't leave empty handed. The Girl from the North Country was awarded the Best Orchestrations Tony, Joaquina Kalukango took home Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical for Paradise Square. Phylicia Rashad also received Best Performance by an Actress in a Play for Skeleton Crew and The Skin of Our Teeth was awarded for Best Costume Design of a Play.

We want to say a huge congratulations to all those who won, but also to those who didn't - even getting a nomination is a huge achievement in itself!
