Broadway fans, get ready, because the curtain is rising on the 77th Annual Tony Awards! While most years, one or two musicals take center stage during awards season, this year there is plenty of love for all five of the shows nominated for Best Musical. And no clear consensus surrounding the Best Revival of a Musical contenders, either — making this year’s Tony Awards even more exciting. Nominees Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club, Hell’s Kitchen, Illinoise, Merrily We Roll Along, Suffs, The Outsiders, The Who’s Tommy, Water for Elephants and Stereophonic are all slated to perform on the Tonys stage. Ariana DeBose will once again host the ceremony. Stars such as Rachel McAdams, Eddie Redmayne and Jim Parsons will be in attendance.

The 77th Tony Awards will air on CBS and stream live on Paramount+’s SHOWTIME tier this Sunday, June 16 at 8 p.m. ET. Here’s what else you need to know:
