ART, Huntington make their mark at Tony Awards

It was a memorable night for the Boston area’s two leading theater companies Sunday, as the American Repertory Theater’s circus-themed revival of “Pippin’’ won four Tony Awards while the Huntington Theatre Company was presented the 2013 Tony for regional theater during the ceremony at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

“Pippin’’ won the Tony for best revival of a musical, while ART artistic director Diane Paulus won for best direction of a musical. Paulus was nominated for best direction in 2009 for “Hair’’ and again last year for “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess,’’ but she lost both times, although each of those shows won for best musical revival.
