And which shows paved the way for strong summers and lucrative touring companies ("Once") and which shows are likely to be Monday's punchlines ("Ghost: The Musical")? Which presenters and acceptance speeches shined and who's probably relieved that the Tonys are watched by a fraction of the Emmys/Oscars/Grammys audience?
