The Tony Awards are always a much-needed reminder of the beauty and wonder of immaculately staged productions. Some of the most revered actors of our time developed their skills spewing out dialogue in the confines of the theater.

As much as we love the blockbusters and stylized TV shows, nothing beats the discipline that envelopes actors who are committed to the magic of real time delivery.

The 2014 Tony Awards will be held on June 8 at Radio City Music Hall, and actor Hugh Jackman has been commissioned to host for a fourth time.
