    jbnbpt 6/9/2014 2:15:07 AM

    jbnbpt 6/9/2014 2:24:57 AM
  • Seriously they're playing him off?
    jbnbpt 6/9/2014 2:26:15 AM

    jbnbpt 6/9/2014 2:33:18 AM

  • Best revival of a musical goes to HEDWIG. #tonyawards
    jbnbpt 6/9/2014 2:39:19 AM

    jbnbpt 6/9/2014 2:44:34 AM
  • Hugh's having a good time introducing the best actress in a musical nominees. And so are they.

    jbnbpt 6/9/2014 2:59:08 AM
  • And there's the money shot of Harvey Weinstein happy as a clam #tonyawards
    jbnbpt 6/9/2014 3:00:03 AM
  • If I was singing a big number in an upcoming musical,how would I feel if they got JHUD to premiere it on the #tonyawards ?
    jbnbpt 6/9/2014 3:03:41 AM
  • And best musical goes to ... A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. Is it just me or did the voters really spread the love around tonight? #tonyawards
