The 2021 Tony Awards celebrated Broadway on Sunday night by honoring productions that went live during the 2019-2020 season.

The 74th annual ceremony was delayed a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic and, ultimately, resulted in a cumulative four-hour broadcast that was simulcast on CBS and the Paramount+ streaming service.

The show -- the first Tony Awards in more than two years -- went smoothly, with host Audra McDonald proclaiming that the audience was comprised of "vaxxed and masked" individuals -- reflecting the current Broadway policy.
