The Tony Awards were a big night for Broadway, but the winners are more known for their cartoon television work than for their stage work.

“The Book of Mormon” received nine awards for its outrageous but good-natured comedy about two missionary innocents in Uganda, coming close to the Tony Award record set by “The Producers” a few years ago. Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park dreamed up the musical with the help of Avenue Q writer Robert Lopez.

One person determined to see the show as soon as possible told Arch Campbell they managed to book tickets in November.

Closer to home, Minnesota's Penumbra Theater brings its tribute to Nat King Cole to the Kennedy Center's terrace theater. "I wish you love" re-lives Cole's groundbreaking 1957 television show at the beginning of the civil rights movement.It plays at the Kennedy Center until Sunday.
