With Theater Pizzazz’ Sandi Durell and Joe Clarke in the Press and Photo Rooms, TP is bringing you as much Tony Pizzazz as we can on the winners as they were presented. Some surprises?  Of course. Many heartfelt, emotional speeches. Josh Groban sang “You’ll Never Walk Alone” against the photos of the many in the theater community who passed on this past year.

And what about Kelli O’Hara accepting her award with such enthusiasm that she did the worm!

Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming hosted and emceed; they were absolutely adorable and charming, at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 7 – the big celebratory night for theater. Both stars are Tony winners themselves,

Prior, Darren Criss and Laura Osnes hosted a live webcast as the stars arrived at Radio City Music Hall on the Red Carpet.
