The 69th annual Tony Awards, honoring the best in Broadway theater for the 2014-'15 season, handed out 24 golden statuettes for everything from best costume design to the best play and musical of the year. Actors Alan Cumming and Kristin Chenoweth served as hosts.

The night's big winners were musical Fun Home and play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which each took home five prizes — including awards for Best Show, Best Direction, and Best Actor in a Leading Role (Alex Sharp for Curious Incident and Michael Cerveris for Fun Home).

Both works are adaptations of books. Curious Incident adapts Mark Haddon's novel about an autistic teenager who tries to discover who killed a neighborhood dog, while Fun Home adapts Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir where her coming-of-age and coming out as a lesbian is juxtaposed with the life and death of her closeted gay father.

The Lincoln Center revival of The King and I and the new musical version of George Gershwin's An American in Paris each won four awards. The former scored for Best Revival of a Musical and Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical for Kelli O'Hara, who won her first Tony on her sixth nomination. The play The Audience also won two major awards — Leading Actress (Helen Mirren) and Featured Actor (Richard McCabe) in a play. Mirren has now won both an Oscar and a Tony for playing Queen Elizabeth II.
