Tony Awards: See every musical performance

There’s plenty of Tony Awards coverage to go around—you can peruse through EW’s list of the best and worst moments, or re-live Sunday’s ceremony through our live blog—but, let’s be real. Everyone just wants to see the performances.

Worry no more. Here are all of this year’s musical performances from the 68th Tony Awards.


Firsts & Worsts: Sutton Foster on awkward headshots and bad 'Millie' reviews


Every actor has to start somewhere — and when it comes to theater performers, their roots are often similar, right down to the roles they cut their teeth on or the songs they first used at an audition.

From Millie to Violet, Sutton Foster has seen and sung it all, and she’s got the stories to share about her time on the Broadway stage — and the much smaller stages in her hometown in Georgia. Foster is the latest theater star to recount some of her favorite (or least favorite) musical memories in Entertainment Weekly’s Firsts & Worsts Series.

Foster was game to share stories about her first lines (as Fan in A Christmas Carol), her worst review (“Get the hook!”), and the early theater experiences that shaped her as an actress today. Bonus points for an embarrassing confession of a particularly phallic Scarlet Pimpernel costume.

With the Drama Desk nominations newly-minted, and Tony nominations being announced on Tuesday, we are in full-swing for year-end theater awards mania. And EW’s writers have been busy as bees getting out the last gasp of reviews from the 2013-2014 season, with no less than nine shows opening in the past week. Some themes are definitely emerging. We got men in ladies’ attire (Neil Patrick Harris in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, above, and Casa Valentina), men’s exposed buttocks (Alan Cumming in Cabaret, Nick Offerman in Annapurna), and sassy leading women who won’t take no for an answer (Estelle Parsons in The Velocity of Autumn, Sutton Foster in Violet). A little something for everyone! (Click on the links below for full reviews) READ FULL STORY

Sutton Foster sets Broadway return in musical 'Violet'

Two-time Tony winner (and former Bunheads sweetheart) Sutton Foster is heading back to Broadway and re-teaming with Roundabout Theatre Company two years after she earned her second Best Actress in a Musical win for Roundabout’s 2011 revival of Anything Goes.

Foster will star in a new Broadway staging of Violet, directed by Leigh Silverman. The gospel/country/rock/R&B musical boasts a score by Jeanine Tesori and a book and lyrics by Brian Crawley. The show is based on Doris Betts’ short story “The Ugliest Pilgrim,” which tells the tale of a disfigured girl named Violet who follows an Oklahoma televangelist whom she believes can heal her.
