Leslie Odom Jr. Declares That Broadway is Back During Tony Awards 2020 Opening Number - Watch Now!

Leslie Odom Jr. kicked off the Broadway’s Back concert portion of the 2020 Tony Awards with an energetic opening number!

The 40-year-old actor, who previously won a Tony for Hamilton, is hosting the second half of the show on Sunday (September 26) at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York City.

The opening number began on the actual street of Broadway and then Leslie made his way inside the theatre and then to the stage, where he was joined by stars of musicals like Wicked and The Lion King.

During the original song, Leslie pleaded with the audience at home to get vaccinated and for the audience in the theater to keep their masks on.

Earlier in the night, Leslie walked the red carpet with his wife Nicolette Robinson.
