Celebrities walk the red carpet at the 2011 65th Tony Awards held at the Beacon Theatre on Sunday (June 12, 2011) in New York City. How I Met Your Mother actor Neil Patrick Harris, 37, is serving as the host during tonight’s ceremony. He began the show with an exuberant, tongue-in-cheek song about how Broadway isn’t just for gay people any more. The number had many dancing nuns, sailors, flight attendants and Mormons.
The Tony Award, recognizes achievement in live Broadway theater. The awards are presented by the American Theater Wing and The Broadway League at an annual ceremony in New York City. The awards are given for Broadway productions and performances, and an award is given for regional theater. Several discretionary non-competitive awards are also given, including a Special Tony Award, the Tony Honors for Excellence in Theater, and the Isabelle Stevenson Award. The awards are named after Antoinette Perry, co-founder of the American Theater Wing.
