Yeah, I know. There’s a huge basketball game going on right now. And, you’d think I’d be watching it, because it involves my homies, the Boston Celtics.
But no. I’ll be watching the Tonys tonight. Are you? Paula Abdul will be presenting the award for Best Choreography, plus Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele from Glee will be performing. Sean Hayes of Will and Grace, and currently starring in the Broadway revival of Promises, Promises is this year’s host.
Constantine, a former Tony nominee (last year, for his role in Rock of Ages) will be hosting a simulcast on the big screen in Times Square.
The awards will be broadcast on CBS, starting at 8/7c PM. TheaterMania is tweeting the results HERE. The Tonys’ official twitter is HERE.
Some of the awards have already been announced through the Creative Arts awards that took place prior to tonight’s broadcast. Check out the award winners so far HERE.
UPDATE: Video: Matthew Morrison performs “All I Really Need is the Girl” from Gypsy and Lea Michele sings “Don’t Rain On My Parade” from Funny Girl. Plus, Paula Abdul presents the Best Choreography award.
Check out all the winners HERE. Memphis won Best musical, Red won for Best Play.
