The Tony Awards are just two days away! Broadway's biggest night is an exciting time for many - performers, singers, dancers, choreographers, and musical theater fans alike. Some of Broadway's biggest stars will gather this Sunday NYC at Radio City Music Hall (you can watch it wherever you are on CBS at 8/7 c). This year, Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles will be co-hosting the event.
Though they're both relatively new to the Great White Way, both performers made waves in their recent Broadway debuts. Groban garnered recognition after his portrayal of Pierre in Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, which ran from October 2016 to September 2017 (Groban starred in the unconventional musical from October 2016 to July 2017). He earned a Tony nomination in 2017 for "Best Lead Actor in a Musical". Bareilles wrote the music and lyrics for Waitress, which opened in August 2016 and is still running on Broadway. She even starred in it from March 2017 to June 2017, and returned to the role again for six weeks earlier this year.
We're really looking forward to seeing these two bring out some major chemistry onstage - if the Instagram photos they've been posting are any indication, it should be a fun evening!
Want to join them? We thought so.
Here's how to enter the #TonyDreaming contest. If you're 18 or older, all you need to do is post a photo of yourself as a youngin', strutting your stuff in a musical or recital (don't have a photo? Ask your mom or your grandma - they definitely have one). Post it on Instagram on Twitter with the hashtag #TonyDreaming , and you may be featured during the show!
We'll be watching...and we hope to see one of our Pluggers up there!
