Kinky Boots Leads Broadway's Tony Award Winners

The Cyndi Lauper musical Kinky Boots took the night's top prize for Best Musical.

The show about a shoe factory that's saved from ruin when it starts making kinky boots snagged the prize from the Brittish import Matilda: The Musical. Most critics predicted Matilda would triumph.

Cyndi Lauper looked genuinely surprised when she won for writing the music for the show but admitted practicing a speech anyway.

"I can't say I didn't practice in the shower," said Lauper.

The show's star, Billy Porter won the Tony for Best Actor in a musical.

The award for Best Play went to Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.
