The Tony Awards are back in Radio City Music Hall tonight, where more space -- twice the size of last year's venue -- means bigger musical numbers.
The front-runners for best musical are “Kinky Boots,” adapted from the British film of the same name with a book by Harvey Fierstein and music by Cyndi Lauper, and “Matilda, the Musical,” an adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic with music by Tim Minchin and a book by Dennis Kelly.
"Kinky Boots" and "Matilda" received the most overall nominations, with 13 and 12 nods respectively. "Pippin" picked up 10 nominations, the third largest number among the productions and a favorite to win best musical revival.
Follow along with The Times arts and culture staff as they tweet live throughout the show. The broadcast kicks off on the East Coast at 5 p.m. and will be rebroadcast on the West Coast at 8 p.m. PDT.
