Tony Awards 2018: How to Watch, Who’s Presenting and More!

Michael Cera and wife Nadine

Notable Nominations: Leading the pool of nominations this year are Mean Girls and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical, each with 12 and both up for the coveted Best Musical accolade.

"Angels in America" is "for anyone who has felt like they don't belong, who have felt ostracized by their culture, who have been told or indoctrinated by religion or by a society that somehow they were created wrong", Garfield adds. The two-part production originally won two Tonys for Best Play: for part one, "Millennium Approaches" (1993), and part two, "Perestroika" (1994).

The Tony Awards are back for a one-night special at a stage near you.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical: Ari'el Stachel, "The Band's Visit".

The show also won awards for its luminous lead actress, Katrina Lenk, and its director, book and score, among others.




The Middle East conflict, immigration, LGBT equality, gun control - many social issues came up, explicitly or implicitly, during the ceremony, which was hosted with a light (and musical) touch by Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play: Glenda Jackson, "Three Tall Women". In other acting awards, Nathan Lane won his third Tony - his first in a dramatic role - for playing Roy Cohn in "Angels in America". Drilling into the numbers, the live event was up a tiny 2.1% over the Kevin Spacey fronted 71 Tony Awards of June 11, 2017.

Expect to see the likes of Tina Fey representing "Mean Girls", as well as Andrew Garfield, Denzel Washington and Amy Schumer, who are all nominated for their work in plays this year.

Lastly, a group of theater students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School sang "Seasons of Love" from Rent as a tribute to the lives lost in the senseless shooting in Parkland, Fla.

This story has been corrected to show that the official after-party was at the Plaza Hotel, not the Ritz Hotel.
