The 72nd Annual Tony Awards took place last Sunday night, and what a night it was!
ASCAP member Itamar Moses had a banner night, winning the Best Book of a Musical category for The Band’s Visit. The show ended up collecting 10 Tonys in total, including Best Musical.
The Best Revival category had three worthy competitors in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel, My Fair Lady and Once on This Island, each with book and score by ASCAP members. In the end, the Tony went to the spectacular revival of Once on This Island, with book and lyrics by ASCAP member Lynn Ahrens, and music by ASCAP member Stephen Flaherty.
Congratulations to all of the winners, and to ASCAP member Sara Bareilles for her superb co-hosting job. Time to start the countdown clock for next year’s Tonys!
