Wow! What a year… Tony voters surprised us by crowning Fun Home the best musical of the year. Well deserved and certainly a less mainstream title than some of the other nominees. Other big winners include Kelli O’Hara for The King and I and Christopher Wheeldon’s choreography for An American in Paris. Big nominees that failed to snag significant awards include Hand to God and Something Rotten!—though they’re both fantastic shows, too. Our final word? … Go to the theater!
