Best and Worst of the 2012 Tony Awards
'Once,' Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald and more
This one's pretty straight-forward: Eight wins, including Best Musical and Lead Actor in a Musical (plus Director and Book and Score and a few other biggies), makes "Once" the biggest winner of Tony night both in terms of sheer numbers and -- and this is more important ultimately -- in terms long-term profitability, touring productions and whatnot. And the well-received production number should put butts in the seats for the Broadway production.
