75th Annual Tony Awards 2022: Here’s The Full List Of Winners

The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical "A Strange Loop" bagged the best musical at the 75th Tony Awards, which kicked off at Radio City Music Hall in New York on Sunday night.

"The Lehman Trilogy," by Stefano Massini and Ben Power of the rise and fall of the Lehman Brothers investment house, scooped up a Tony for best play. Newcomer Myles Frost won as best actor in a musical as a work-obsessed Michael Jackson in "MJ" and Joaquina Kalukango was voted best actress in a musical for her portrayal of a tough-minded 19th-century tavern owner in "Paradise Square."

The awards show, which honours the best of stage performances Broadway plays and musicals resumed its regular schedule after an epidemic hiatus since June 2019.

The three-hour-long web cast event was hosted by actress Ariana DeBose who won best supporting actress in "West Side Story" at this year's Academy Awards.

This season of comebacks hasn't always been easy. After COVID outbreaks, practically every play has had to cancel performances or lose important actors for numerous shows, and new waves of the virus and variants like Omicron have impacted ticket sales at times. Despite the hurdles and losses, 34 plays and musicals premiered this season, with 29 of them being nominated for awards.

This season on Broadway, a record number of shows by Black playwrights were staged, setting a new high, as reported by Variety.

Following the Black Lives Matter movement, Broadway has been pushed to tell more stories about marginalised groups. Many of the Tony Award winners this year, including "Skeleton Crew," "Paradise Square," and "for coloured females who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf," deals with race issues.
