Just as the Baseball season ends with its World Series and Football has its Super Bowl, the official Broadway season ends with a bang as some of the theater community’s best and brightest take home one of its highest honors: The Tony Award. While the ceremony promises many surprises (including new hosts Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles), there are some things we definitely anticipate seeing during this year’s ceremony:

  1. Plenty of love for Tina Fey’s Broadway musical adaptation of her coming-of-age hit, Mean Girls (pictured).
  2. Recognition for the stirring import of Angels in America starring Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane.
  3. No love (yet) for the anniversary revival of Boys in the Band, which opens too late to be eligible for this year’s awards.
  4. A bevy of other famous faces from this season’s productions, such as Meteor Shower’s Amy Schumer, Children of A Lesser God’s Joshua Jackson, Tony Shaloub of The Band’s Visit, Lauren Ambrose of My Fair Lady and many more.

As for who will be taking home a trophy, you’ll have to tune in to CBS on June 10th to find out. tonyawards.com
