(FROM VARIETY) — At the 62nd Tony Awards on Sunday, the recipients of the top prizes may have been In the Heights (Best Musical) and August: Osage County (Best Play), but it was a revival of the six-decade-old South Pacific that was the night's big winner. That production garnered seven prizes — the evening's top tally — including Best Revival of a Musical. (The original South Pacific won nine Tonys in 1950.) Here's the complete list of winners from the 2008 installment of Broadway's annual awards presentation. (Variety)
