The 70th Annual Tony Awards held on Sunday June 12th 2016 at The Beacon Theatre.
The event which is perhaps one of the biggest in Broadway, was hosted by James Corden and it featured performances from some of the most popular Broadway shows of the year — “Hamilton,” “Shuffle Along,” “The Color Purple,” and “Spring Awakening.”
Hamilton, an improbable hip-hop musical about America’s first Treasury secretary, picked up Broadway’s highest honor: the Tony Award for best new musical.
The big night was almost interrupted by one of the deadliest shootings in the US, but the show went on as guests wore a silver ribbon as a sign of respect to those who lost their lives during the shooting.
