‘Fences’ and ‘Fela!’ Win Big At Tony Awards

Published by Clay Cane on Monday, June 14, 2010 at 12:00 am.

fela_broadwayIn case you aren’t familiar with the Tonys, it’s an annual awards show that honors excellence in theater. While there are diversity issues with the Academy Awards, the Tonys has always been leagues ahead. Winners for Tonys include James Earl Jones, Diahann Carroll, Jennifer Holliday, Heather Headley, Phylicia Rashad, Savion Glover, Anika Noni Rose, Pearl Bailey, Lena Horne and countless others.

Last night was no different. Viola Davis won her second Tony for best actress in a play for Fences. In addition, Fences picked up two more wins, best revival of a play and Denzel Washington for best actor in a play, which was his first nomination.  In a teary-eyed speech Davis said, “I don’t believe in luck or happenstance. I absolutely believe in the presence of God in my life.”

The critically acclaimed Fela!, which is produced by Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, won for best choreography — given to the legendary Bill T. Jones. Fela! also won for best costume and sound design.

Some celebs in attendance were Beyonce, Jay-Z, Paula Abdul and Will and Jada.

Congrats to all of the winners!
