Who shined at the Tony Awards last year?
The 74th edition of the Tony Awards took place on September 26, 2021, at Winter Garden Theatre in New York City and it was broadcasted live not only on CBS but also on the streaming service Paramount Plus.
Last year, during the award ceremony “Moulin Rouge! The Musical” ruled the Tony Awards and bagged many awards. The musical got 14 nominations. Covid 19 hit all of us and the theater community also suffered a lot due to it. The whole world came to a standstill.
The cinema halls got shut, which means many people faced heavy losses as their projects got delayed and they had to reschedule everything. But I’m glad that things are much better now. There was a point when we could not even meet each other in person, but now we are getting back to normal life. The showbiz is getting back on track.
At the moment, there is no comment on the host of the show. More details regarding the Tony Awards will be shared soon. Stay tuned for the latest updates.
