Reporting on Broadway and the Tony Awards

From an Inside the Times story by Mathew Brownstein headlined “The Tony Awards, and a Reporter, Go Off Script”:

This Sunday, the 76th Tony Awards, an annual ceremony that celebrates Broadway’s best plays and musicals, will take place at the United Palace in Manhattan.

Viewers can expect some familiar features, such as live musical performances and the return of the Broadway actress Ariana DeBose as host. But this year’s Tonys will look (and sound) a little different from many ceremonies past.
