‘Once’ Wins Best Musical, Seven More at Tony Awards

Posted by at 12:28 pm on June 11, 2012

Once, the stage musical based upon the 2006 film starring Glen Hansard and Mark√©ta Irglov√°, won eight Tony Awards last night, including best musical. Since the show’s songs were written for the screen, the production did not win awards for the music, but it did receive honors for sound design, orchestration, book and direction.

Steve Kazee, the show’s star, won for best actor in a musical, though female lead Cristin Milioti lost in the best actress category to Audra McDonald in the revival of The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess.
