Judith Light won the Tony Award on Sunday as featured actress in a play for "Other Desert Cities" by Jon Robin Baitz. It is her first Tony.

Light, who is perhaps best known for her role in the ABC sitcom "Who's the Boss?," played a dipsomaniac aunt in Baitz's comedy about a wealthy Palm Springs family facing a series of domestic crises. The actress was nominated last year for the play "Lombardi."
