The 2012 Tony Awards® aired nationwide last night on CBS, bringing Broadway to your living room for one night only.
To start the evening, the show opened with a special “Hello” from the cast of The Book of Mormon, which won Best Musical in 2011. Neil Patrick Harris returned as host for the third time, introducing featured performances, special star appearances and, of course, the awards for Broadway’s biggest accomplishments this season. Once walked away with eight awards including Best Musical, and Peter and the Starcatcher, a prequel to the Peter Pan story took home five awards. With all that and more, what’s not to love?
