Meanwhile, the revival of The King and I walked away with four wins–including those for Best Revival of a Musical and Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical for Kelli O’Hara. And An American in Paris also took home four awards, including Best Lighting Design of a Musical and Best Choreography.
