2019 Tony Award Winners

Brian Sloan

Hadestown and The Ferryman were the big winners at the 2019 Tony Awards, taking home the hardware for Best Musical and Best Play. Hadestown, a bluesy musical reimagining of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, won a total of eight Tonys, including honors for 73-year-old Broadway veteran André De Shields (The Wiz). The Best Play Tony for The Ferryman, an Irish drama with a cast of 30 humans (plus a goose and a rabbit), is the first for acclaimed British playwright Jez Butterworth (Jerusalem). In the performance categories, The Cher Show's Stephanie J. Block won Best Actress in a Musical for her spot-on portrayal of the pop superstar, and Santino Fontana received Best Actor in a Musical for his dual role as Michael Dorsey and Dorothy Michaels in Tootsie. Read on for a list of other winners and nominees you can check out now on Broadway, including this year's Best Revival of a Musical, Oklahoma!  (Shows whose titles are not linked have finished their runs.)
