Lea performs at Tonys with 'Once On This Island' cast

Tony Awards Races to watch and front-runners to beat

Fans are already queuing around the block to catch a glimpse of the rehearsals. If you are suffering: please, please call out.

Emotions ran high during the Tony Awards on Sunday (10Jun18) as stars took the stage to promote social change.

Best Actress in a play victor Glenda Jackson, recognised for work in "Three Tall Women", praised the multi-cultural nature of the theatre business.

When does the ceremony begin? Its victories came during an emotional awards ceremony at which many prize winners rued the current political climate in the United States.

To watch the Tony Awards red carpet pre-show, head to the Tony Awards on CBS' Facebook page, where CBS will be streaming live coverage from the Tony Awards red carpet.

Two new musicals lead the nominations for the top Tony Award crown, with Tina Fey's "Mean Girls" and "SpongeBob SquarePants" receiving 12 nods each.

Filipino Broadway star Lea Salonga returned to the Tony Awards stage on Sunday with a performance from the musical "Once On This Island", which won Best Musical Revival that night.

Now running at the Lyric Theatre in NY, tickets were hard to come by even before the show was named Best Play at the Tonys.

De Niro then introduced Bruce Springsteen, who performed and was presented with a special award.

Will there be any British winners? The Tonys telecast always takes the time to speak to those kids, and while it would have been far better if it had been in different circumstances, it seemed appropriate, rather than forced, to let Herzfeld's students demonstrate some of what she's done for them under these hard circumstances. Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber was honored with a lifetime achievement award. Andrew Garfield, accepting Best Actor for his performance as Prior in Angels, dedicated his award to the sanctity of the human spirit.

Also slated to appear are Melissa Benoist, Erich Bergen, Rachel Bloom, Matt Bomer, Titus Burgess, Brandon Victor Dixon, Armie Hammer, Christopher Jackson, Katharine McPhee, Matthew Morrison, Leslie Odom Jr.

Co-hosts Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles, talented and likable if not terribly thrilling, made somewhat subdued hosts, opening the show with a self-parodying duet on piano for all the losers out there - including them.
