Tony Awards 2016: Photos from the ceremony and red carpet

It's theater's biggest night.

The Tony Awards – the 70th annual ceremony, hosted by James Corden – were broadcast live from the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan. And while some of the stars at the event shine most brightly on Broadway, many others brought the luster of film and television. And then there's Lin-Manuel Miranda, the "Hamilton" creator who took home enough sparkly awards to light up stage all on his own.

Here are some highlights.
