After pandemic delays upon delays, the 74th Annual Tony Awards finally happened. The ceremony actually honored the winners from the 2019-2020 season, given that Broadway and other theatrical venues have been on hiatus for almost the entire 2020-2021 season.

With all attendees vaccinated and masked up, the event went ahead safely hosted by award-winning actress Audra McDonald and streamed live on Paramount+. "Like every show on Broadway, our audience is vaxxed and masked," said McDonald. "Masks have made reopening of theaters a reality, after more than 560 nights in the dark. The lights are on and we're back."

Despite a couple of unusual circumstances -- like Aaron Tveit being the only person nominated in his category -- the ceremony went off without a hitch. It also included incredible musical performances from Jagged Little Pill, Moulin Rouge! The Musical and Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, as well as a special Wicked performance from Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth.
