Will The Book of Mormon tie (or even surpass) 2001’s hit The Producers as the winningest Broadway musical in the history of the Tony Awards? Will an all-American work like Good People or the provocatively titled The Motherf—er With the Hat manage to upset the British juggernaut War Horse for Best Play? And will Neil Patrick Harris shine as he returns to host the theater world’s biggest awards show — or follow the unfortunate Lion King-to-Spider-Man trajectory of Julie Taymor? Join Mandi Bierly and me this Sunday for’s annual live blog of the Tonys, beginning at 8 p.m. EST. We’ll have reports from EW’s stage gurus Aubry D’Arminio and Melissa Rose Bernardo on the red carpet, in the press room, and around the auditorium of the Beacon Theatre.
