At the top of Sunday night’s show, host James Corden joked that the Tony Awards would be much more diverse than the Oscars—but it wasn’t just a joke. Black performers won all four musical acting categories at the Tonys for the first time in the show’s history.
Lucifer clasps his sooty hands together, as he sits behind a bright red-orange desk surrounded by flames, wearing a black Snuggie. He tosses his head back, unleashes a piercing cackle and pounds on the desk, knocking his scepter off in the process. “Yes,” he whispers. “Hamilton is crumbling.”
Cynthia Erivo, the British singer and actress currently starring as Celie in Broadway’s The Color Purple, performed one of the show’s closing songs, “I’m Here,” on Monday night’s episode of The Late Show, and—in four breathtaking minutes—proved that she has a better voice than you.

A New Zealand high school’s production of Sweeney Todd went wrong (or, from another angle, completely right) when two students suffered real neck cuts from a prop razor during their opening night performance.

You probably also know all of the lyrics to “Let It Go,” which, at first, you appreciated for its defiant lyrics, but now you’ve come to truly loathe that dumb song. And maybe you’d like to have a word or two with…

Last night on Crazy Ex Girlfriend, Valencia—the romantic rival of the show’s protagonist Rebecca Bunch—got to show off her softer side with the pop-country anthem “Women Gotta Stick Together.” But try as she might, the poor sexy yoga instructor (played by Gabrielle Ruiz) had a hard time putting her girl power message…
In an interview with E Online, Laverne Cox said that she’s working hard to transform herself into Frank-N-Furter, the role that Tim Curry inscribed on all of our impressionable young minds.
