Big Night on Broadway

By Lara Ehrlich and Laurel Homer

CFA alums topped the Tony Awards on June 8, 2014, at Radio City Music Hall when Stewart F. Lane (’73) and Sue Wagner (’97) received trophies for Best Musical for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, which they co-produced. The musical comedy—in which one actor, Jefferson Mays, played eight heirs vying for the family fortune—was the evening’s most celebrated show, with 10 nominations and 4 wins. Broadway’s biggest night marked milestones for both alums: it was Lane’s sixth Tony Award; Wagner also took home a Tony (her third) for Best Revival for A Raisin in the Sun.
