2013 Tony Award winners

The 2013 Tony Awards celebrated the best and the brightest on Broadway. Celebs walked the Audemars Piguet red carpet before watching Neil Patrick Harris perform an 8-minute long opening number that featured scores from current Broadway shows and a cameo by boxer Mike Tyson.

During the more serious portion of the program, several popular plays won big.

“Matilda, the Musical,” snagged four awards while “Kinky Boots,” a feel-good musical featuring songs by Cyndi Lauper, took home six including “Best Musical.”

In a heartfelt moment, actress Cicely Tyson accepted her award as Best Actress for her portrayal of a widow returning to her hometown in “The Trip to Bountiful.”

“I’m the sole surviving member of my immediate family. I’ve asked over and over again why,” said Tyson. “I now know why.”
