After nominees brought down the house with performances from Hamilton and The Color Purple, 2016’s Tony Awards were a tough act to follow. The 2017 Tony Awards, however, managed just fine with numbers from nine shows, a self-deprecating but hilarious opener from host Kevin Spacey, and “New York, New York” performed by Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., and the Radio City Rockettes.
So if you’re looking bawl through Dear Evan Hansen‘s “Waving Through a Window,” catch all of Spacey’s theater kid in-jokes during the opening number, or you still can’t figure out what was happening during the Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 performance, here are videos from each of Sunday night’s performances. We wish we had a video of Bette Midler performing her titular role in Hello, Dolly!, but let’s be honest, that speech was a performance all its own.
