The upcoming 71st annual Tony Awards has gotten considerably less pre-show hype than last year’s “Hamilton”-fronted ceremony. But after recently emerging from a record-breaking season, Broadway certainly has reason to celebrate.
Joining Sunday evening's festivities will be a stacked lineup of talent, including several big names (both on and off-Broadway). Stephen Colbert of “The Late Show” and Lin-Manuel Miranda, the mastermind behind last year’s "Hamilton" sweep, have now joined the roster of performers.
In addition to Miranda and Colbert, the awards show will feature a number of performances from nominees from the casts of “Bandstand,” “Come From Away,” “Dear Evan Hansen,” “Falsettos,” “Groundhog Day the Musical,” “Hello, Dolly!,” “Miss Saigon,” “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812” and “War Paint.”
