The Tony Awards are proving to be as supersized as ever, with new presenters and performers being announced almost daily (Sting! Jennifer Hudson!), and Hugh Jackman (back on Broadway this fall in The River) presiding as host for the fourth time, sure to give us a little musical-theater whirl per usual. EW will be joining you for the sure-to-be-surprising telecast, in one of the closest, most competitive years in recent memory. Will Beautiful: The Carole King Musical tell A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder it’s too late? Will Bryan Cranston go All the Way? (Ummm, yeah.) Can anybody possibly beat Neil Patrick Harris’ Hedwig? And are those rumors true that John Travolta might pop up to reverse his bad Adele Dazeem Oscar-presenting mojo?
Please join senior editor Thom Geier and myself on Sunday, June 8, at 8 p.m. ET for EW’s annual live-blog of the Tony Awards, which will be filled with fun factoids and just the right amount of snark and sophistication. And on the scene will be intrepid reporters Marc Snetiker and Melissa Rose Bernardo to let you know what’s buzzing on the red carpet, in the press room, and inside Radio City Music Hall.
