“The Band’s Visit” led all Tony contenders with 10 wins including leading actor, leading actress, featured actor, direction and score. “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” took best play and five other categories Sunday night in New York. “Angels in America” picked up awards for lead actor (Andrew Garfield) and featured actor (Nathan Lane), while “Three Tall Women” has scored its own double win in the form of Glenda Jackson and Laurie Metcalf.
With Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban as hosts, the Tonys delivered humor, heart, politics and Bruce Springsteen, who received a special award for “Springsteen on Broadway.” The biggest showstopper: a riveting performance by drama students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School of Parkland, Fla.
