TONY AWARDS 2018

Posted by Jo Wads on

The Tony Awards celebrated the best of Broadway on Sunday night and Glossy Pops were there for the ride. Head across to our Instagram Highlights for all the Glossy Poppin' action from the night.

The Tony Awards is Broadway's biggest night and in its 72nd year it was held on Sunday, live from NYC's iconic Radio City Music Hall.

Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles, co-hosted the awards show, kicking things off with a piano duet and throughout the night were a wonderful co-hosting duo.
"Mean Girls" and "SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical" lead with 12 nominations. "Angels in America," "The Band's Visit" and "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Carousel" follow with 11 each. Tina Fey wrote the 2004 film "Mean Girls" and also wrote the Broadway production, which made its debut in April. "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" was nominated for ten Tony Awards. The play, based on the hit books by J.K. Rowling, also made its Broadway debut this year.
Some of this year's presenters included Uzo Aduba, Matt Bomer, Claire Danes, Jeff Daniels, Robert De Niro, Armie Hammer, Billy Joel, Patti LuPone, Matthew Morrison, Leslie Odom, Jr., Jim Parsons, Bernadette Peters, Zachary Quinto and Kerry Washington.
'The Boss' Bruce Springsteen was honoured with a special Tony Award for "Springsteen," his one-man show on Broadway and we were also priviliged enough to see him perform on the night too!
