The Flip Side: Tony Season

The 2016 Tony season is underway! Broadway stars Andrew Rannells and Nikki M. James were up bright and early this morning to announce this year’s nominations. To no one’s surprise, Hamilton came away with an impressive sixteen nominations, the most in Broadway history. The 2016 ceremony, hosted by Carpool Karaoke legend (and Tony winner) James Corden, airs on Sunday, June 12. Congratulations to all nominees.
