More Details about Tony Awards 2022

Take Me Out won the award for Best Revival of a Play while Jesse Tyler Ferguson captured the prize for his featured role in the production. Paradise Square‘s Joaquina Kalukango took home the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical.

And Phylicia Rashad won Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for her performance in Skeleton Crew. Angela Lansbury was honored with the 2022 Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre, marking her sixth Tony.

Oscar-winner and former Tony nominee Ariana DeBose played the role of the host for the award ceremony which aired live coast-to-coast from the legendary Radio City Music Hall in New York City on both CBS and Paramount+.

The West Side Story star delivered a monologue that celebrated “steps toward inclusion” being taken on Broadway. She said, “I am so proud that the theater is becoming more reflective of the community who adores it, and in doing so, has gained new performers, new creatives, new fans.”

DeBose further added, “It has shown us stories that have broadened our world and opened our hearts and our minds. And while we have not solved all of our problems, I feel like the phrase ‘Great White Way’ is becoming more of a nickname as opposed to a how-to guide.”
