The 68th Annual Tony Awards are this Sunday at 8p.m. on CBS. ET is breaking down everything you need to know about the show before the big winners are announced!
Hugh Jackman returns to host the show for the 4th time. The hunky actor posted a preview video of himself in tap dancing rehearsals earlier this week. So it’s safe to say that judging by this clip, we’re in for a fantastic show Sunday night!
But Hugh won’t be the only four-time host taking the stage. Neil Patrick Harris will be singing and dancing in front of the audience along with the rest of the cast of his musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Neil’s starring role in the Broadway show has also earned him his first Tony Award nomination.
Other performances on the big show include Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight, and Fantasia from After Midnight. The cast of Wicked will also be reuniting for the first time 2004, and we just know that they’ll definitely be Defying Gravity.
Broadway star Idina Menzel is bringing her skills back to the Tony Awards. Along with performing with the cast of Wicked, she’ll be showing off her skills with her If/Then cast. If/Then is the first Broadway show the 43-year-old has done in a decade and it is a play she truly adores, not to mention it has also earned her a nod at this years show.
“This is the cherry on top for me,” she told ET after she learned she had been nominated. “I’ve waited a long time to come back to New York City and do a show.”
