Tony Awards dedicate tonight's ceremony to Orlando victims

The Tony Awards announced that tonight's ceremony (televised on CBS) is dedicated to the families and friends of those affected by the Pulse Nightclub mass shooting.
They also created a special remembrance ribbon for Orlando, saying, "The Theatre community stands in solidarity."
Also, New York Times theater reporter Michael Paulson broke the news that cast members from Hamilton plan to eliminate the muskets that are usually props in the dance number they will perform on the show.
