Kansas City comes up empty at the Tony Awards

Kansas City had skin in the game but didn’t win any awards at the annual Tony Awards broadcast Sunday from Radio City Music Hall in New York. “A Christmas Story,” which originated at the Kansas City Repertory Theatre in 2009, was nominated in three major categories. Lauren Ward, a graduate of Hickman Mills high School, who stars in “Matilda the Musical,” lost Andrea Martin of “Pippin” for best featured actress in a musical.
