The 2018 Tony Awards are almost here, so we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know before Sunday's big show.
Of course, Broadway has had an incredible year: In fact, the 2017-2018 season broke records for attendance. Broadway shows brought in $1.7 billion with a total attendance of 13.8 million over the past year. So interest in this year's show will be very high.
WATCHING THE TONYS:
The Tony Awards will take place on Sunday (June 10). The live telecast from Radio City Music Hall in New York City will begin at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT on CBS.
We have a complete list of the nominated shows and performers right here.
The show will be hosted by Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles. Both singer-songwriters have had success on Broadway in recent years.
Bareilles co-wrote (and has starred in) the musical Waitress. Groban spent time on Broadway last year when he starred in the musical Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812. Both were nominated for Tony awards. In fact, Bareilles wrote a song for the Tony-nominated show Spongebob Squarepants: The Musical.
It marks the first hosting gig for the pair (who have been longtime friends). With their chemistry, it is sure to be a great show.
With shows like Mean Girls and Spongebob Squarepants: The Musical leading the way in terms of nominations, the show is sure to be incredible.
