Tony Awards Rewind
An incredible evening full of love, community, and moving performances, this year’s Tony Awards are not one to have missed. But in case you did, (or you just want to relive it all over again) here’s a recap of the best moments of the night.
James Corden is not throwing away his shot.

Daveed Diggs made hearts met everywhere,
When he told a touching story about how his parents taught him to push limits and supported him without question.
“Love is love…
…is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.” Lin Manuel-Miranda’s sonnet speech for Best Orchestrations dedicated to his wife and the victims of the Orlando shooting reminded everyone, everywhere that love is love.
