A MAJOR SWEEP: Signature Theatre walked off with 10 prizes at the 25th annual awards ceremony, with Les Miserables nabbing all the musical acting categories except for male lead (which also went to Signature’s David Margulies for The Happy Time). LADIES NIGHT: Eight glamorous gals shared four tied awards, thus doubling the female winner quotient this year. Broadway legend Chita Rivera wasn’t there to accept, but outstanding lead actress/resident musical co-recipient Natascia Diaz held her own with a breathless tribute: “Oh my God, Chita! You are who I want to be when I grow up.” Winners received a glow necklace!
