"I feel like we're in a bit of a groove with the show," NPH said when asked about any nervousness he may be harboring about the event. "But it's always a different beast because you're honoring a whole new crop of shows, so the Tony Awards kind of creates itself based on the season's shows."
From big musicals like Newsies to more serious dramas like Other Desert Cities, Broadway had a little something for everybody this season, and theater's biggest night also has a few tricks up its sleeve, according to the host.
"We have a few interesting, surprise-y bits," said NPH, who cut himself off before spoiling the show for potential viewers. "I'd be terribly in bad form to give it away now."
