Broadway's best and brightest illuminated the 68th Annual Tony Awards with brilliant performances and touching musical numbers that dazzled the crowd.
However, before the spectacle of the show began, the stars walked the red carpet outside the Radio City Music Hall in New York City, and talked with ET correspondent Seth Rudetsky.
One of the big productions honored that evening was Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, and Seth asked some of the hottest stage stars to belt lines from their favorite King tunes.
For Hugh Jackman, it was You've Got A Friend, and Jackman even his lovely wife Deborra-Lee Furness, as well as Seth himself. As for Wayne Brady, it was (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, and Tony-winner Audra McDonald agreed with him.
Seth also talked with Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, who won a Tony for Best Actor In A Play for his role as LBJ in All The Way. Seth asked the star how difficult performing in 8 matinee shows a week really was.
"[It's] Exhausting. We had a matinee today. It was the eighth show of the week. I feel like I'm on a morphine drip," Cranston joked. When asked if it was harder to do than Breaking Bad, Cranston replied with an emphatic, "Oh yeah!"
