The 2016 Tony awards celebrated the best of the great white way in New York City on Sunday night. Although the Beacon Theatre was buzzing with the who’s who of Broadway, the sadness and devastation was on everyone’s mind from the tragic incident in Orlando earlier in the morning. Comedian James Corden who was the host of the Tony Awards had a very touching opening speech that included, “On behalf of the whole theater community, and every person in this room, our hearts go out to all of those affected by this atrocity…theater is a place where every race, creed, sexuality and gender is equal, is embraced, is loved”. Corden did an extraordinary job as the show’s host and kept a good flow and timing with jokes. The musical ‘Hamilton’, was nominated sixteen times and won for best musical. There was singing, dancing and of course, tons of fantastic red carpet fashion. ‘The Color Purple’ may have won for best revival of a musical but it was the color yellow that seemed to be the winning color on the red carpet at the Tony awards. What were some of the standout looks of the night? Scroll on and take a look. Are any of your favorites on this list?
