Tony Awards recap

Hello, piglets! I thought I'd post a list of tonight's Tony Award winners, because, even if you watched the show, it's sometimes hard to keep track of just who won what.
I count eight for Spring Awakening, the big winner of the evening. I'm very pleased for Frank Langella, one of my favorite actors, but I'm a bit torn as another of my favorites, Christopher Plummer, was up for the same award. I'm also happy for Christine Ebersole and David Hyde Pierce, two actors whose work I've always enjoyed.

thanks for the recap, I missed it all except the last hour (which I taped, still haven't watched). Very glad to see David Hyde Pierce won, altho I was rooting for Charlotte D'Ambroise - I just love her for some reason (perhaps because I love her husband so much).

Were there any stellar performances that I need to go see on youtube?
