Someone play us a celebratory song! Kecia Lewis has won the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical for her stellar performance as Miss Liza Jane in Broadway’s Hell's Kitchen. She was crowned at the 2024 Tony Awards on the stage of Lincoln Center's David H. Koch Theater. Lewis beat out fellow nominees Lindsay Mendez for Merrily We Roll Along, Bebe Neuwirth for Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club, Shoshana Bean for Hell's Kitchen, Amber Iman for Lempicka, Nikki M. James for Suffs, and Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer for Monty Python's Spamalot.

This is not only Lewis’s first Tony win but also her first nomination. She was last seen on Broadway in Children of a Lesser God in 2018 and has been a replacement in several different shows, such as Chicago as Matron.

There’s a place where the rhythm of the city is music, where every corner has a story, and every window is a kaleidoscope. Where a girl can step out of her apartment and find the world. That’s Hell’s Kitchen, a new musical from Alicia Keys that’s about to make Broadway feel brand new.
