Behind The Scenes At This Year's Tony Awards!

Despite the song's creed, we really don't give our regards to Broadway as often as we should. These actors, dancers, and singers are up on stage giving a performance all they've got every single day of the week. Luckily, they're getting the applause they deserve at this Sunday's Tony Awards. And, we were there to capture the behind-the-scenes magic before the main event.

Yes, we snuck our way into Radio City Music Hall to see the Tony Award dress rehearsal and caught up with some of the stars. We spoke to the Best Actor-nominated leading men of A Gentleman's Guide To Love And Murder and got acting tips from the pros. Not that we needed any. Ahead, an exclusive sneak peek at what it's like waiting in the wings of the Tony Awards. Standing ovation at your desktops welcome.
P.S., major thanks to the Paramount Hotel, host of the first-ever Tonys pop-up shop, for hooking us up (so we didn't have to sneak our way into Radio City, video crew in tow).
