The 74th annual Tony Awards celebrated pre- and post-pandemic era Broadway Sunday night by honoring productions that went live during the 2019-2020 season. 

The ceremony was delayed a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic and, ultimately, resulted in a cumulative four-hour broadcast that was simulcast on CBS and the Paramount+ streaming service.  The show went smoothly, with host Audra McDonald proclaiming that the audience was comprised of “vaxxed and masked” individuals, reflecting the current Broadway policy.

Among the big winners of the night was newcomer Moulin Rouge! The Musical, which earned the trophy for best musical and also dominated the respective musical categories.  The Inheritance was honored with best play while A Soldier’s Play was deemed best revival.
