Also during Sunday’s broadcast, Springsteen is scheduled to receive a special award for Springsteen on Broadway, which continues to sell out the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City.
Two of the most talked-about Broadway musicals of the year, Tina Fey’s Mean Girls and Spongebob Squarepants, are each nominated for 12 Tonys each. In the play category, the Angels in America revival and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts One and Two lead the pack with 11 and 10 nominations, respectively. Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban, who have both appeared in Broadway shows themselves, are this year’s hosts. For more about Springsteen on Broadway and ticket information, visit the show’s website.
