NEW YORK (AP) — The Tony Awards will be heavy on showcasing works on Broadway this season, with performances from Ricky Martin, Raul Esparza, Audra McDonald, Matthew Broderick and the casts of “Godspell” and “Ghost The Musical,” among many others.
Producers Monday revealed a list of performances that include all four new musicals — “Newsies,” ”Nice Work If You Can Get It,” ”Once” and the now-closed “Leap of Faith” — but also the revivals “Follies,” ”Evita,” ”The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess” and “Jesus Christ Superstar.”

The show will even have performances from several plays, including “End of the Rainbow,” ”Peter and the Starcatcher” and “One Man, Two Guvnors.”
The Tonys will air live on CBS from the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Sunday. Neil Patrick Harris returns as host.
