Here’s how the Tonys managed to honor the victims of the Orlando shooting in the midst of celebration.
The horrific, tragic shooting at Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando shook America, and The Tony Awards, Broadway's biggest night, was dedicated to the victims of the shooting.
Before the lively celebration of the theater community, with musical numbers and acceptance speeches celebrating love, host James Corden addressed the audience directly. "Hate will never win. We have to make sure of that," he says, "Tonight's show stands as a symbol and a celebration of that principle."
