Josh Groban added to a packed Tony Awards telecast
NEW YORK (AP) — The Tony Awards show on Sunday will try to up the razzle-dazzle quotient by adding Josh Groban to 175 performers onstage at the same time.
All the musicals nominated — “On the 20th Century,” ″The King and I,” ″Fun Home,” ″Something Rotten!” ″An American in Paris,” ″The Visit” and “On the Town” — will be featured, as well as some overlooked ones. They include “Gigi” with Vanessa Hudgens, “Finding Neverland” with Matthew Morrison and Kelsey Grammer, and “It Shoulda Been You” with Tyne Daly.
The cast of “Jersey Boys” will perform “Oh What a Night” to celebrate the show’s 10th anniversary. Presenters will include Larry David, Jim Parsons and Bryan Cranston.
The Tonys will be handed out at Radio City Music Hall. Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming will host.
