After the telecast (discussed in my post here), Broadway is all about the after-parties. There is the official Tony Gala at the Plaza. Then each show or each lead producer usually hosts their own party.

It was a evening of stars at the 69th Annual TONY Awards last night, with some surprise wins -- rather, vindication for dedicated fans who were excited to see favorites win across categories.

The show--with concept and lyrics by Byrne, music by Byrne and Fatboy Slim -- captivated theatergoers and critics last April during its limited engagement as part of the Public season.
