It's Broadway's biggest night of the year — the Tony Awards! Stars from some of New York's hottest shows flocked to the city's Beacon Theatre on Sunday, June 12, to celebrate the Great White Way's best plays and musicals of the past 12 months.

This year's Tony Awards ceremony (CBS, 8 p.m. ET) is dedicated to all those affected by the Orlando nightclub shooting, which left 50 dead and dozens more injured. The show, hosted by James Corden, will feature performances from shows including Shuffle Along, Waitress, She Loves Me, The Color Purple and, of course, Hamilton.

Lin-Manuel Miranda's acclaimed hip-hop musical is poised for a big night. It earned a record 16 nominations, including Best Musical. Among plays, Long Day's Journey Into Night leads the pack with seven nominations, ahead of Eclipsed and The Humans, with six nominations each.
