“A Christmas Carol” won 5 Tonys including Best Score, while “Jagged Little Pill” won two including Best Book of a Musical.

“A Soldier’s Play” garnered two Tonys including best revival of a play, while “The Sound Inside” captured best performance by an actress in a leading role in a play.

Finally, “Tina – The Tina Turner Musical” took home one Tony, when Adrienne Warren won best performance by an actress in a leading role.
