Curtain up! Light the lights! The pandemic might have dimmed The Great White Way temporarily, but everything's coming up roses because Broadway is BACK! And it's time for the 2021 Tony Awards on Paramount+! Although there's nothing more electrifying than seeing live theater in person, the Tonys telecast has done a fabulous job of bringing Broadway to living rooms. In fact, we've been gifted with some uh-MAY-zing numbers over the decades.

Whether it's a full-blown production (pop culture phenom Hamilton and the show-stopping Act 1 closer of Les Miserables) or a theater legend owning the stage on their own (The Book of Mormon's Andrew Rannells or Company's Raul Esparza), these Tony Award performances still give us goosebumps!
