It’s the Tonys! Or, given the relative lack of enthusiasm we feel about this year’s slate, it’s the Tonys. Tonight’s awards honor the best of Broadway’s last season—a season that didn’t see a true breakout musical. (Last year’s big winner, The Book of Mormon, is still an impossible ticket). One of the Best Musical nominees has already closed! There are still a few exciting categories, though, particularly on the straight-play side of things: established stars Cynthia Nixon and Stockard Channing might just lose the Best Actress trophy to newcomer Nina Arianda, whose Venus in Fur performance consumed theatergoers’ conversations all season. We’ll be checking out CBS for the only time this year!
Beacon Theatre, private event, also airs on CBS at 8pm.
