Tony Awards -

Tonight, the Tony Awards are of course bringing to you a celebration of all things theater, and that means giving you a wide array of winners from all walks of life, and all sorts of theater. Of course, we expect “Hamilton” to win a ton of awards over the course of the night, but it’s not the only nominee on the night! There are other categories, after all, that it is not even in.

Therefore, we’re going to be updating this winners’ list as the night goes on. Be sure to refresh this page periodically to get a little more information!
