The feel-good musical “Kinky Boots” — with songs by pop star and Broadway newcomer Cyndi Lauper — won six Tony Awards on Sunday, including best musical, best score and best leading man. . .

Lauper, who wrote and sang the 1980s hit “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” was among the impressive women who took top honors: Diane Paulus and Pam MacKinnon both won for directing — a rare time that women have won directing Tonys for both a musical and a play in the same year. (The most recent previous time was in 1998.)

“Kinky Boots” also won for choreography and two technical awards, and the show’s Billy Porter won for leading man in a musical. . .

Cicely Tyson, 88, won the honors for best leading actress in a play for the revival of “The Trip to Bountiful,” the show’s only award on the night. It was the actress’ first time back on Broadway in three decades. “ ‘Please wrap it up,’ it says. Well, that’s exactly what you did with me: You wrapped me up in your arms after 30 years,” she said.
