74th Tony Awards Live Chat

The 74th Annual Tony Awards honor the shows that opened right before the quarantine. Tonight’s broadcast will be split across two channels.

  • 7pm ETParamount + streams the main ceremony. Audra McDonald will host.
  • 9pm ETCBS Live streams the Broadway’s Back concert and awards for best Play, Revival and Musical. Leslie Odom Jr. will host.

The nominees include:

Best Play

  • Grand Horizons by Bess Wohl
  • The Inheritance by Matthew Lopez
  • Sea Wall/A Life by Simon Stephens and Nick Payne
  • Slave Play by Jeremy O. Harris
  • The Sound Inside by Adam Rapp

Best Revival of a Play

  • Betrayal by Harold Pinter
  • Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune by Terrance McNally
  • A Soldier’s Play by Charles Fuller

Best Musical

  • Jagged Little Pill
  • Moulin Rouge! The Musical
  • Tina: The Tina Turner Musical
  • (The only show with an original score, The Lightning Thief, got snubbed. If it’s any consolation it’s the only one likely to be licensed to schools.)

The rest of the nominees are listed on the Tony Awards website. Clips from the nominated shows can be found on the Tony Awards YouTube channel.
