Tonys: 'All the Way' Wins Best Play

 

All the Way won the Tony for best play on Sunday.

Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan, the play stars Bryan Cranston, who was nominated for his leading role in the musical. Though Cranston is no stranger to the stage, All the Way marked his first Tony nomination for his theatrical role of President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Cranston also took home the win for lead actor in a play.

The production is currently scheduled to run at the Neil Simon Theatre through Jun. 29.
