Tony Time: 2014 Tony Awards Winners

The-Annual-Tony-Awards-2014-Hollywood-Awards-Celebrities-Entertainment-Awards-CBS-Television-Beverly-Hills-Magazine-Hollywood-Magazines-300x254Broadway’s biggest night has come and gone in the blink of an eye! The 2014 Tony Awards lit up the stage last night at Radio City Music Hall filled with performances, presenters and so much more! After a long awards season filled with many predictions leading up to last night, there could only be one winner in each category! So who walked away with the big win last night? From a few assumed obvious winners to a couple of surprises, The 2014 Tony Awards kept us on our feet last night right down to the final category of the night! Today, Luner on Theatre brings you the official list of the 2014 Tony Award winners! 

The 2014 Tony Awards brought forth a totally different take on the annual theatre awards ceremony from last year’s! Hosted by Hugh Jackman, there was no overall large winner but rather a number of Broadway shows walking away with an equal amount of awards at the end of the evening. While the evening featured no overall MAJOR production numbers, we did see a number musical performances throughout the evening!
