The ceremony took place for the first time at New York City's Lincoln Center with Tony-nominated and Oscar-winning actress Ariana DeBose hosting the awards ceremony for the third year in a row, after presiding over last year's writerless event with an elaborately choreographed dance number.

Shaina Taub won best score and best book of a musical for Suffs, the story of the suffragette movement, featuring an all-woman cast.

Stereophonic took the Tony Awards for best play and best direction for Daniel Aukin. David Adjmi's play about a 70s-era rock band making an album, featuring original songs by Will Butler, formerly of Arcade Fire, broke the record for the most nominations for a play in Tonys history.

Succession star Jeremy Strong won best lead actor in a play for his role in the Henrik Ibsen play "Enemy of the People," and Daniel Radcliffe, best known for his starring role in the Harry Potter movie franchise, won best featured actor for "Merrily We Roll Along."

Will Brill beat out two other actors in his production, Stereophonic, for best featured actor in a play. Kara Young, who is the first Black actor, male or female, to be nominated for a Tony three years in a row, won the award for best featured actress in a play for her role in Purlie Victorious.

Justin Peck won the best choreography Tony for the dance musical Illinoise, which brought Sufjan Steven’s 2005 concept album Illinois to the stage.

Danya Taymor won for direction of a musical an adaptation of S.E. Hinton's coming-of-age novel The Outsiders, upsetting favored Merrily We Roll Along actor Maria Friedman.

Dancers including DeBose, reviving her Oscar-winning role as Anita in Steven Spielberg’s film version of West Side Story, paid tribute to Broadway legend Chita Rivera, who died this in January at the age of 91.

During a pre-show event hosted by actors Julianne Hough and Utkarsh Ambudkar and streamed on the free platform Pluto TV, Tonys were awarded mostly in technical categories.

The pre-show included the award for best regional theater, which went to Philadelphia’s Wilma Theater, and the Isabelle Stevenson Award, which was awarded to Billy Porter for his work as an activist and spokesperson for the LGBTQ communities.

Director Jack O’Brien and writer, director and producer George C. Wolfe each received the 2024 Special Tony Award for lifetime achievement in the theater.

Special Tony Awards were also presented to Alex Edelman for his one-man show “Just For Us,” Abe Jacob for his work in sound design, and Nikiya Mathis for her wig design in “Jaja’s African Hair Braiding.”
