The Tony Awards will cap a special season of inclusion

Posted June 13, 2016

It is the worst mass shooting in USA history.

"It's a season that has brought audiences to Broadway that probably wouldn't have been interested or don't get the chance to come and see themselves onstage portrayed in ways where they feel moved and connected", said Adrienne Warren, who is nominated for a Tony in "Shuffle Along". The cast is set to perform on Sunday, giving those at home a chance to finally see even a small part of the show.

While she was preparing, longtime Tony voter Colleen J-Roggensack wrote, "I am reminded theatre heals and tonite we will celebrate the good in the world". "American Horror Story" star Jessica Lange, "Star Wars" actress Lupita Nyong'o, Steve Martin, "Heroes" star Zachary Levi, "30 Rock" star Jane Krakowski, and singer Sara Bareilles will likely be on the red carpet to celebrate their nominations.

Other Broadway stars, like Audra McDonald and Kristin Chenoweth, reacted to the attack with horror.

Andromeda new footage and details
In single player, Titanfall 2 will deliver a crafted experience that explores the unique bond between man and machine. Oh, and the entire thing is on the Frostbite engine, which would explain why the game looks so damn pretty.

James Corden will host Broadway's biggest night of the year as the musical Hamilton looks to sweep the board at the 2016 Tony Awards.

British actor Mark Strong is nominated for best performance by a lead actor in a play for his role in Arthur Miller's A View From The Bridge, while Irish star Gabriel Bryne is nominated in the same category for his performance in Long Day's Journey Into Night.

And so the 70th annual Tony Awards, airing on CBS at 8 p.m. EDT (0000 GMT), should help reverse a recent slide in TV ratings, as both "Hamilton" devotees as well as people who have simply heard the fanfare boost interest.

All eyes will be on Corden at the beginning of the awards show for his comments about the violence in Orlando.

Queen's birthday brings together 4 generations of royal family
The Queen has two birthdays - the official one is always held on a Saturday in June to make the most of the better weather. Queen Elizabeth II was born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary on April 21 1926 and so has already turned 90 years old.

The Founding Father musical earned a record-breaking 16 nominations for making history come alive with a mostly rapped score by an insanely talented, diverse cast.

Despite the excitement, "Hamilton" appears unlikely to equal "The Producers" with its record 12 wins. The 70th Annual Tony Awards are just days away and host James Corden is already making lovely music with the Great White Way's best talents.

He's no stranger to the stage; he won a Tony in 2012 for Best Actor in a play for "One Man, Two Guvnors".

Love lost? Cavs wait for Kevin Love's return in NBA Finals
Cleveland Cavaliers' power forward Kevin Love still isn't sure if he'll be cleared to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. In the first two games, Love got switched onto Warriors guard Steph Curry - not something the Cavs are hoping to see.
