Tony record for Stoppard

Tom Stoppard's play The Coast Of Utopia won a record seven Tony Awards in New York last night, including Best Play. As BBC News reports:
The 69-year-old, who won his first honour in 1968, said: "I feel a bit nostalgic actually because this year it's 40 years since I first came here with a play...It was a different planet in 1967, the Broadway theatre. It had a little ashtray clamped to the back of every seat and the author got 10% of the gross."
