It is nearly that time of the year again when the brightest and best of Broadway are celebrated at the annual Tony Awards. The ceremony will be held at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on June 7, and will be presented by Cabaret star Alan Cumming, and Broadway legend Kristen Chenoweth. I can’t think of anyone more fitting to present the ceremony than two previous winners.

The nominations for this year’s awards were announced today by Mary-Louise Parker and Bruce Willis, who will be starring in the Broadway stage adaptation of the Stephen King story Misery later this year.
