New York — There was plenty of applause heard during the Tony Awards – and perhaps no place louder than from as far away as Pittsburgh.
Six alumni from Carnegie Mellon University took home Tonys in five categories, a glittery haul that was both a school record and a huge source of pride for a theater department that turns 100 next year.
Billy Porter, Patina Miller and Judith Light each took home acting Tonys, while Ann Roth got one for best costume design, and partners Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer won for best lighting design of a play.
"We've had a bumper crop," said Peter Cooke, head of the university's school of drama. "I'm just delighted that they received rewards from their peers. It was just a terrific night."
The six wins means Carnegie Mellon took bragging rights from the better-known Yale University School of Drama, which had four Tony winners Sunday: costume designer William Ivey Long, »

New York — On a feel-good night for Broadway, it was only natural that the Tony award go to its most feel-good musical, the joyous "Kinky Boots." But most everything about Sunday's Tony telecast was warmhearted, from inspiring speeches about the theatrical community to the inspired antics of Neil Patrick Harris, who should officially be awarded the host job on a permanent basis.
It was an especially happy night for female theater artists: In a rare feat, women took home both directing prizes, for a musical (Diane Paulus for the high-energy "Pippin" revival) and for a play (Pam MacKinnon for the searing revival of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?").
And Cyndi Lauper won best original score for "Kinky Boots," a result that had many in the audience whooping with delight. "Girl, you're gonna have fun tonight!" shouted presenter Jesse Tyler Ferguson, the "Modern Family" actor – a reference, of course, to Lauper's »

"The Tony Awards" opened with Neil Patrick Harris as the singer from "Once" and poked fun at Shia LeBeouf "for passing on opening."
And yes, of course he can play guitar. What can't Neil Patrick Harris do?
Within moments he was in a tux, doing the big opening number and introducing Mike Tyson.
Yes, Mike Tyson on Broadway, but he did have a limited run show this season.
No worries about any dancers losing their job.
Singers and dancers from all of the hit musicals paraded on the huge stage of Radio City Musical Hall for the live production on CBS. As kids from "A Christmas Story, the Musical" and "Matilda, the Musical" danced on stage.
Harris sang: "Is there a Tony daycare where all of you go? Do your parents aside all your Broadway dough?"
And as a dig to lip synchers, he added: "We sing live eight times a week -- check it. »
Smith Magazine’s Six-Word Memoir Project has creeped its way into Tony Awards land, with some hilarious results. Nominees for this Sunday night’s Tony Awards (airing on CBS beginning at 8 p.m. Et) had to express their gratitude, best wishes, and other emotions in six words, and the magazine’s Facebook page has them in a gallery for perusal. Most amusing of all is how many nominees either exceed or don’t quite reach six words. (Ahem, Courtney B. Vance, Hal Luftig, and Bertie Carvel- — though the latter freely admits his rascally deed). And Holland Taylor slips one last word in, »

Episodes: Ongoing (hour)
TV show dates: June 6, 2013 -- Tbd
Series status: Has not been cancelled
TV show description:
This series is inspired by true events and focuses on the lives of undercover agents from the FBI, DEA, and Us Customs who reside and operate under one roof. When forced to give up any shred of normalcy and the question of trust is a matter of life or death, the house becomes a sanctuary -- their "Graceland."
Despite a Broadway season that saw a 6-percent dip in attendance, theater fans still have cause for celebration at this Sunday’s Tony Awards. There’s a contest heating up for Best Musical, pitting the “revolting” children of Matilda against the fabulous drag queens of Kinky Boots.
And there’s some real suspense in other major categories: Will two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks (above) add a Tony to his mantel for his Broadway debut in Lucky Guy? Will former Who’s the Boss star Judith Light win back-to-back Tonys in Best Featured Actress in a Play? EW critics Melissa Rose »

New York -- That title isn't wrong. In what is turning into a truly fortunate week for Lucky Guy, producers have announced that the late Nora Ephron's play has recouped its initial capitalization of $3.6 million, only two days after picking up six Tony nominations. Digging into her early journalism roots, Ephron's final work is an affectionate chronicle of the New York tabloid wars of the 1980s and of the rise, fall and redemption of scrappy crime-beat columnist Mike McAlary. On Tuesday, it was nominated for best play, leading actor Tom Hanks, featured actor Courtney B. Vance and director George C. Wolfe as well

New York — The Cyndi Lauper-scored "Kinky Boots" has earned a leading 13 Tony Award nominations, with the British import "Matilda: The Musical" close behind with 12. Tom Hanks, making his Broadway debut, earned a nod as leading man in a play.
"Kinky Boots" is based on the 2005 British movie about a real-life shoe factory that struggles until it finds new life in fetish footwear. Lauper's songs and a story by Harvey Fierstein have made it a crowd-pleaser.
"I walked my dog early this morning so I'd be back in time to listen to the announcement. It's so great. It's so great. I'm done crying a little bit. But I'm still thrilled and a little stunned," Lauper said.
The haul did not match the record number of nominations for a musical, which is 15, set by "The Producers" in 2001 and "Billy Elliot" in 2009. "The Book of Mormon" nabbed 14 Tony nods in 2011.
