Trivia:

Won two Tony Awards as the author of the Best Play winner two years in a row: in 1993 for "Angels in America: Millennium Approaches" and in 1994 for "Angels in America: Perestroika". He was also twice-nominated in 2004 for "Caroline, or Change:" as Best Book of a Musical and as Best Score (Music and/or Lyrics), the latter with collaborator Jeanine Tesori. See more »
