This year's Tony Awards honored The Normal Heart for its passionate look at the AIDS crisis. It also bestowed Tonys on War Horse, a play that showed the horror of the battlefield. But the night's biggest prize went to a musical that mocked both.
The Book of Mormon took home nine Tonys on Sunday - including the prize for best musical - propelled by a so-offensive-its-funny look at two naive missionaries who arrive in Uganda and find misery, gun-toting warlords, villages infected with HIV and people considering having sex with babies as a cure.
