This year, we were fortunate enough to host the 70th Annual Tony Awards Gala! In our sixth year partnering with our friends at The Broadway League and Serino Coyne, this year was even more special. On the wake of the terrible tragedy in Orlando that stunned our nation, it was clear that the Tony winners, nominees, and fans were all standing together. Following Lin-Manuel Miranda’s moving acceptance speech and his tribute to the victims, there was not a dry eye in the house, including his own!
After the Beacon Theater, guests made their way to The Plaza and The Palm Court, Terrace Room, Plaza Food Hall & Todd English Food Hall were flooded with attendees ready to eat, drink, and celebrate with 1,600 of their closest friends! Winners and nominees mill around taking pictures with fans and their beloved Tony’s and the star attempt to grab a quick bite to eat between photo-ops.
Between the Plaza Food Hall, Todd English Food Hall and CPS Events, an astounding menu was created with variety from many different parts of the globe with options for everyone. Everywhere Rosemary Lemon Lamb Skewers, to Salmon Ceviche, to Brisket Bahn Mi Sandwiches in The Palm Court and Terrace Room, we were sure to satisfy every palette.
As the official after party for the Tony Awards, we were graced by the presence of countless talented actors and actresses. We are so very fortunate that The Tony Awards Gala has entrusted The Plaza with its biggest, not to mention most favorite night of the year. We can’t wait for the 71st Tony Awards Gala!
