An extravaganza celebrating the magic of the theatre, the 65th Annual Tony Awards will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris on CBS at 8:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. CT.
The awards show will feature live performances of some of the nominated musicals and plays. Some of these musicals include the joy-inspiring Sister Act, the cheeky Cole Porter classic, Anything Goes, and the revived version of How To Succeed In Business Without Trying starring Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame.
