One of the most beloved evenings in the performing arts world is soon to be upon us— The Tony Awards. Sure, you can cozy up in your pajamas, pop a bowl of popcorn, sit back, relax and enjoy the show. There’s no shame in that game. But, if you’re looking to up the ante this year, we’ve got you covered.
Regardless of what your plans are for the evening of Sunday, June 9, turn your TV to CBS at 7:00 PM CDT to see James Corden host the show at Radio City Music Hall.
Whether you’re ready to go full-on with a Beetlejuice-inspired striped pantsuit look or want to take The Prom or The Cher Show approach with an elaborate sequin dress, the sky’s the limit. Perhaps you’re going for a full face of stage makeup or you’re aiming more for red-carpet friendly fit, but no matter the final form, you want tonight to feel and look special, and we support you all the way.
The best ways to gather materials for your outfits would be starting in thrift shops like Goodwill, or even channeling your inner costume-designer by collecting supplies from your own closet. Even if you end up in your old Wicked merchandise booth T-shirt, we are confident that you’ll be Best Dressed on the Red Carpet in your living room.
This is your Super Bowl, right? While HyVee might not have the world’s greatest potato chip deals this weekend, you can make the most of some simple snacks to add some tasteful—and tasty—details to your evening. Bonus points if you can get them to match the themes of some of the best musicals and plays of 2019!
Whether you print out a personal ballot or place healthy bets over Best Musical or Score, you’re in for a fun night. If you’re looking for a little more direction, try one of these BINGO sheets we made just for you!
