Connecticut resident Patti LuPone walked into the 2022 Tony Awards on Sunday with two Tonys to her name. By the time the night of celebrating the best stage performances of the year concluded, she left with a third in hand.\u00a0 LuPone took home the award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Joanne in the musical comedy, \u201cCompany,\u201d at this year\u2019s 75th Annual Tony Awards.

When the Kent resident took the stage of New York City\u2019s Radio City Music Hall to accept the award, LuPone thanked the \u201cCompany\u201d cast and crew, the audience and the behind-the-scenes staff in her speech, according to People. She also noted \u201call of the understudies across all of the stages in New York, and to all of the COVID safety people\u201d who helped make theater possible again post-COVID-19. According to Broadway.com, LuPone won an Olivier Award for her role as Joanne in Company in the show\u2019s world premiere in London.

The best-laid plans.\u201d LuPone was not the only actress with Connecticut ties nominated for a Tony Award this year.
