It’s Broadway’s biggest night! The 2022 Tony Awards are honoring the best and brightest of the Great White Way — from performances to costumes and beyond.

The 75th annual awards show will take over New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 12, celebrating plays and musicals from the 2021-2022 season. Oscar winner Ariana DeBose — who made her Broadway debut in Bring It On, The MusicalIn 2011, and was an original Hamilton cast member — is hosting the star-studded affair.

“This is the first time we’re back at Radio City [since the coronavirus pandemic started],” the West Side Story star told The New York Timesahead of the Tonys. “The community is still coming out of what has been an extremely challenging time. I do look at this as an opportunity to try and provide a real moment of celebration, because I think it’s a gosh-darn feat and a triumph to have been able to make work at all and get to this moment in time.”

When asked whether she felt nervous to take the lead on the awards show’s stage, she joked, “I would like to throw up, if I’m honest. I love a challenge. And I just feel like whatever we do is going to be fun.”

DeBose follows in the footsteps of past hosts, like Neil Patrick Harris, James Corden, Leslie Odom Jr.More. “If I do my job right, it will be a reminder to young people out there watching that there is a place for us,” she continued. “And, to be perfectly frank, Broadway was the place that gave me freedom to explore my identity, freedom to explore my artistry. It was the place of love and acceptance that helped create the woman that you see now.”

The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, The Pulitzer Prize, announced the nominations in May. Strange LoopA record 11 nominations were earned, including Best Musical. After COVID-19 delays, the show premiered off-Broadway in 2019. It made its debut at Lyceum Theatre earlier in the year.

“When I first heard Meredith Nardino Michael R. Jackson‘s work, I knew I was hearing an exciting and important new voice in American Musical Theatre,” producer Barbara WhitmanIn a statement last month, she gushed. “I was taken on a trip that was funny, insightful, wild and challenging – and I wanted to share this story that I had yet to see on a Broadway stage. I am so grateful to be able to work with the most talented creators, actors, and designers who have come together to tell this game-changing story eight times a week.”

While Strange Loop boasts a fresh cast of newcomers, other Tony-nominated shows feature Broadway mainstays — from Sutton Foster Hugh JackmanIn The Music ManTo Mary-Louise ParkerIn How I learned to drive.

“I’m incredibly proud of this show and The Music Man company,” the YoungerAn alum released a statement after receiving the nomination for Best Performance of a Leading Actress In a Musical. “It’s an honor to be amongst all of the companies that braved the pandemic to bring back theater. Being back on Broadway is an award in itself.”
