Sophie Okonedo wins Tony Award
The "Scream of the Shalka" and "The Beast Below" actress won the Tony Award for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play". She's done plenty of British drama, but her turn as Ruth in "A Raisin in the Sun" is her Broadway debut, so this is a nice feather in her cap. The play itself won an award for "Best Revival".
