Super Exciting Musical News: More A-Listers Added To The Tonys 2014 Line-Up
What to expect when you're expecting the Tonys 2014.
Tony’s, Tony’s, Tonyyyy’s! Cue life affirming musical montage.It’s almost time for the 2014 Tony Awards! Has it been that long since last year’s? Well, yes. This year’s lineup looks mega promising, so here’s a little rundown of what to expect tonght.
A decade after his first time hosting, Hugh Jackman returns to fill some big shoes.
This year’s host is Hugh Jackman and while we’ll miss NPH, that beacon of Tony excellence, as a host (don’t worry, he’s still dropping by to perform with the cast of Hedwig and the Angry Itch), Mr. Jackson’s past appearances at the awards are no less a thing to behold. Example:
The X-Men star hasn't hosted the award show since his first time in 2004, so we're hoping he has a lot of pent up musical energy.
Then there’s the full show lineup, which was just expanded this Saturday to include Orlando Bloom, Barrett Foa, Jonathan Groff, T.I., LL Cool J, Samuel L. Jackson, Judith Light, Rosie O'Donnell and Patrick Wilson. Yes, confirmed, we are very much into all of this.
Per Broadway World, the night will also include performances by 2014 Tony nominee Sutton Foster with the cast of Violet, Alan Cumming reprising his Tony Award-winning role in a performance from the revival of Cabaret, and 2014 Tony nominee Idina Menzel – please resist the urge to make an Adele Dazeem joke - performing a song from the new musical If/Then.
The award show will be broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall, Sunday, June 8 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/ delayed PT) on CBS.
