Tony Awards 2014 winners: 'A Gentleman's Guide' and 'All the Way' take top prizes

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, an old-fashioned musical comedy and the rare Broadway hit not based on a movie or TV show and with zero Hollywood stars in its cast, claimed Best Musical at the 68th Annual Tony Awards on Sunday. Meanwhile, the LBJ biodrama All the Way¬†won Best Play as well as Best Actor for star Bryan Cranston in his Broadway debut.

Neil Patrick Harris, an Emmy-winning four-time Tony host, earned his first award for his role as an East German transgender punker in the musical revival Hedwig and the Angry Inch (and is halfway to an EGOT). And Audra McDonald picked up a record-breaking sixth Tony playing Billie Holiday in the drama Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, becoming the first performer to win Tonys in all four acting categories.

Tony voters spread the wealth this year, with no one show dominating. A Gentleman’s Guide and Hedwig each took home a total of four awards, while A Raisin in the Sun earned three for revival, director Kenny Leon, and costar Sophie Okenedo. After the jump, a complete list of this year’s winners.
