Last night was the biggest night on the theater calendar. The Tony Awards. Hosted by the uber-talented Hugh Jackman, the event featured stars of stage and screen — from Idina Menzel to Bradley Cooper to Kate Mara as well as a performance by Jennifer Hudson.
The ceremony crowned a new queen; Audra McDonald won her sixth Tony Award, becoming the most decorated actress in the award’s history. TV stars Bryan Cranston and Neil Patrick Harris collected trophies for Best Actor in a Play and Best Actor in a Musical, respectively. And Carole King and Jessie Mueller’s duet (Jessie won the Best Actress in a Musical award for her portrayal of King) brought the house down.
The night’s big winners — A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder and All the Way — are must sees. The former stars Jefferson Mays in a fabulous performance. Get your tickets here. The latter, featuring Cranston as President Lyndon B. Johnson, closes soon on the Great White Way.
Thank you Tony Awards ceremony for reminding us how powerful, fun and entertaining theater is.
