Kudos to Tony Awards producer Ricky Kirshner and director Glenn Weiss for seamlessly weaving a staggering 14 musical numbers into the three-hour ceremony. Take a tour of these in the photo gallery at the bottom of this post. 

All four of the Best Musical contenders — “After Midnight,” “Aladdin,” “Beautiful” and “Gentlemans Guide to Love and Murder” — were showcased.

Likewise for the three Best Musical Revival nominees: “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” “Les Miserables” and “Violet.”

Also included were performances by nominees Andy Karl (“Rocky“) and Idina Menzel (“If/Then“) as well as numbers from two musicals that did not do as well as expected: “Bullets Over Broadway” and “Cabaret.”

The current leading ladies of “Wicked” celebrated their show’s 10-year run while Jennifer Hudson (“Finding Neverland”) and Sting (“The Last Ship”) previewed upcoming tuners.
