Kevin Spacey will host the 2017 Tony Awards, and it should be a jam packed event. It was just last year where the Hamilton craze sparked the nation, and now other Broadway shows are looking to ignite after a big Tony bump.
A lot of signs are pointing at the smash hit Dear Evan Hansen to sweep in a lot of categories including best musical. However, this year’s best musical category has some tough competition as the musical based on the film Groundhog Day was given great reviews and the musical based on the book War and Peace called Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 is critically acclaimed for its production value and performance by the cast.
Hollywood celebs also graced the stage, as there is a slew of top list talent that is up for awards as well. Kevin Kline, Pattie LuPone Chris Cooper, Cate Blanchett, Sally Field, Laura Linney, Bette Midler, Josh Groban, Laurie Metcalf, and Corey Hawkins are all up for best lead actor and actress for their respective roles. Best supporting also has some big stars such as Nathan Lane, Danny DeVito, Cynthia Nixon, and Andrew Rannells.
Bett Midler stole the show with her revival of Hello Dolly, which is up for a Tony for best revival of a musical. Another great thing about the Tony’s is you were not able to catch the shows that are or were on Broadway, then tune in for they will give you a taste of each show that is up for best musical.
The Tony always brings out the best and the greatest that Broadway has to offer, so you do not want to miss this ceremony. Check below to see all your viewing options.
