Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has won Best New Play at the Tony Awards in New York.

 

The two-part performance also won Best Direction of a Play at the event last night. It had already won nine Olivier Awards in London before it hit Broadway.

Other Tony gongs went to a British remake of Angels in America – about AIDS, life and love during the 1980s.

It won several awards including Best Play Revival and Best Original Score Written For the Theatre.

Its stars Andrew Garfield won Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play, while Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play went to Nathan Lane.

The Best Musical award was presented to The Band’s Visit and the Best Revival of a Musical award went to Once on This Island.

Andrew Lloyd Webber, who along with Chita Rivera was awarded the Special Tony Award for lifetime achievement in the theatre, said British prospects are bright:

“Theatre, and particularly musicals, are going through a very, very exciting time, and I think it’s very exciting there are so many fine new writers, fine topics being tackled,  some of which haven’t even yet arrived here.

“I think we can look forward to a very good future.”
