Out actor/singer Neil Patrick Harris won a Tony last night for his title role in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” a rock musical about a band led by a trans German lead singer.

“A year ago I was hosting the Tonys,” he said. “This is crazy pants.”

The show also took home awards for best revival of a musical and best featured actress in a musical for Lena Hall.

Other winners included Bryan Cranston (“All the Way”), Tony high priestess Audra McDonald (who took home her sixth award for “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill”) and Jessie Mueller (for “Beautiful: the Carole King Musical.”). Go to tonyawards.com for a complete list of winners.
