If you were one of the 6.9 million people who watched the Tony Awards in 2011, you may have felt a weird sense of déjà vu kicking in as you tuned into this year’s ceremony. Not only was the always delightful Neil Patrick Harris back to host, but the event was yet again relegated to the historic Beacon Theatre on the Upper West Side thanks to Cirque du Soleil’s Zarkana having taken up residence in Radio City Music Hall. The Book of Mormon – last year’s Best Musical – even opened the show for Harris, who went on to sing about how life would be “so much sweeter” if it were more like theatre. His natural charm and cameos from Jesse Tyler Ferguson and a lawn-mowing Patti LuPone made this performance worthwhile.

Despite record-breaking box office numbers – which can probably be attributed to a slew of recognizable titles and movie-to-stage adaptations – the 66th Annual Tony Awards capped off what was a decidedly lackluster Broadway season. With a few exceptions, there hasn’t really been a whole lot for critics or theatre fans to fawn over this past year, and the ceremony last night definitely reflected this vanilla-ness by being mostly underwhelming and presenting few surprises.

Once – based on the 2006 film of the same name – easily swept the musical side of the show, taking home a whopping eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical (Enda Walsh), Best Leading Actor in a Musical (Steve Kazee), and Best Direction of a Musical (John Tiffany).

Nice Work If You Can Get It, a new Gershwin production, claimed Best Featured Actor and Actress in a Musical (Michael McGrath and Judy Kaye). Audience favorite Newsies – which bombed as a movie back in 1992 – fared pretty decently as well, winning Best Original Score (Alan Menken and Jack Feldman) and Best Choreography (Christopher Gattelli).

Best Revival of a Musical went to The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, as did Best Leading Actress in a Musical (a much-deserved win for the flawless Audra McDonald, the first African-American actress to win five Tonys).

While it didn’t win Best Play (that honor went to Clybourne Park, playwright Bruce Norris’s response to A Raisin in the Sun), Peter and the Starcatcher — a prequel of sorts to Peter Pan — snagged five silver statuettes. Venus in Fur, Other Desert Cities, and One Man, Two Guvnors all brought home at least one award, while the much-lauded Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman walked away with Tonys for Best Revival of a Play and Best Direction of a Play.
