Most Famous Goat: Once On This Island won best musical revival, meaning that its resident goat is now the most famous goat on Broadway. Also shut out was "Frozen, " the stage adaptation of the blockbuster Disney film. The musical is about the interactions among Arabs and Jews when a snafu causes musicians in an Egyptian police band to become stranded overnight in a village in the Israeli desert.
