75th Annual Tony Awards: Pulitzer and now top Tony, ‘A Strange Loop’ makes history
Jackson also won for best book. “A Strange Loop” beat “MJ,” a bio musical of the King of Pop’s biggest hits, for the top prize, although the other Jackson musical nabbed four Tony Awards including for best choreography. Patti LuPone won best featured actress in a musical for her work in the revival, thanking COVID-19 safety officials in her acceptance speech. And the Tonys ushered in the latest EGOT winner: Jennifer Hudson, who has an Emmy, Grammy and Oscar, and joined that elite group Sunday when “A Strange Loop” won best musical — she’s a producer. The season — with 34 new productions — represents a full return to theaters after nearly two years of a pandemic-mandated shutdown.mlive.com
