Backstage Moments at the 2020 Tony Awards

The 2020 Tony Awards finally arrived on Sunday, September 26, awarding the great work that happened in a season cut short by the pandemic. Many joyous moments occurred onstage at the Winter Garden Theatre where the ceremony took place, but the celebrations didn’t stop there.

Moulin Rouge! The Musical took home Best Musical as well as nine other Tonys, the most of any show that night, and Aaron Tveit and Adrienne Warren walked home with the coveted Tony Awards for their leading performances in Moulin Rouge! and TINA – The Tina Turner Musical. Find out all the winners here.
