Broadway’s Back…. and ready to give the audience what they want….. LIVE THEATRE! Sunday night was the 74th Annual Tony Awards and Broadway’s finest will be celebrated and honored once more with feeling. “We’re a little late, but we are here!” host Audra McDonald said at the top of the ceremony, taking place at New York’s Winter Garden Theatre. Its a great feeling to see the Tonys after Broadway and theatres around the world went dark in March 2020 to finally rise again like the phoenix just weeks ago.
Among the nominees this year, “Jagged Little Pill” leads with 15 Tony nominations, and right behind it is “Moulin Rouge! The Musical,” with 14 nods. Last night awards truly delivered the goods with appearances by Broadway’s finest including legends Chita Rivera and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber announcing the Best Play which went to “The Inheritance”. It was clear that Broadway owns Sunday Night! Yesterday, I got to talk to some of the night’s big winners!
