A Thrilling Tony Awards Where The Best Play Is The Inheritance

Looking like a sea of faceless humans the Tony Awards came back, well dressed and ready to get the party on. The show was well lit, danced to perfection and had moments iconic duets. In the audience Chuck Schumer wore a save our stages mask.

Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel sang a heart wrenching “For Good” from Wicked.
