The 69th Annual Tony Award Nominees

By TheDaily411.com guest contributor: Dorothy Humprey

The 69th Annual Tony Awards, otherwise known as Broadway’s biggest night, will air this Sunday! The award ceremony that honors the stage’s best actors, writers, directors, and even choreography (a true art) will be hosted by two of the best known stage actors: Kristen Chenoweth, of Wicked fame, and Alan Cumming, whose role as the emcee in Cabaret has become stuff of legend.

Of the many great things the show will do, The Tony’s will also be setting a record! It has been announced that Josh Groban will be joined by more than 175 performers onstage. This will mark the largest group of performers in a single number at the Tony’s. Ever.

In addition, to mark the 10th anniversary of Jersey Boys (the biographical musical about the beginnings of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons) the cast will perform “Oh What a Night”.

Appearances will be made by Neil Patrick Harris, Bryan Cranston, Rose Byrne, and Jim Parsons. Performances by Vanessa Hudgens, Matthew Morrison, Kelli O’Hara, Ken Watanabe, Kelsey Grammer, Brian D’Arcy James, Christian Borle, Tyne Daly, Chita Rivera, plus many many more.

The nominees include both veteran stage actors, such as Kelli O’Hara, Christian Borle, and the co-host herself, Ms. Kristin Chenoweth. Actors best known for the silver screen, such Bradley Cooper (“American Sniper”), Carey Mulligan (“An Education”) and Ken Wantanabe (“Inception”), have also gained notoriety for their work in the theatre this award season.
