Last night, the 68th annual Tony Awards, hosted by Hugh Jackman, aired on CBS and gave America a live, up-close look at the best of Broadway. There were so many fabulous moments - A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder won Best Musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch took home the award for Best Musical Revival, Audra McDonald made history with Tony #6, and Hugh Jackman was a charming host. We are still in awe of the incredible performances from Beautiful - The Carole King Musical, Les Misérables, After Midnight and more!
Here's a thorough recap of Broadway's big night from the New York Times: http://nyti.ms/1kKLMhW.
