NEW YORK (AP) - Cicely Tyson says she didn't want to be greedy, but she did want one more great role.
That role was "The Trip to Bountiful" on Broadway, and it won her a Tony for best actress in a play. Her win at last night's ceremony was probably the most emotional win of the night.
Judith Light won a Tony for her role in "The Assembled Parties." She says the magic of the Broadway community is that they root for each other, and if they didn't, their work would be too hard.
Cyndi Lauper, who won best original score for "Kinky Boots," says maybe it was foolish for her as a Broadway newcomer to try to write a musical, but she saw an opportunity to write for two very different characters so she didn't think about it.
