Theater fags rejoiced last night as freshly outed David Hyde Pierce took home the Tony Award for his leading musical performance in Curtains. Meanwhile, the cast of the Duncan Sheik scored Spring Awakening couldn’t believe their luck – and talent! – when they swept the 61st annual ceremony, snagging statues for Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Featured Musical Actor for John Gallagher Jr. Christine Ebersole won for her role in the musical Grey Gardens.

Nobody celebrated more, however, than the cast of The Coast of Utopia. Tom Stoppard‘s eight hour saga earned Best Play, Best featured Actor for Billy Crudup, Best Featured Actress for Jennifer Ehle, Best Direction for Jack O’Brien (all pictured). That’s the first time in history one play has won those four top honors.
