When host James Corden opened the 70th Annual Tony Awards, the multi-talented emcee took viewers on a trip back in time to explain where, when, and why the British actor/comedian first fell in love with the Broadway stage. 

Not only did The Late Late Show host tell the story of how his parents used to take him to the theatre as a boy, but he then went on to cast himself in some of the most popular musicals of the past 50 years, including Les Misérables, The Phantom Of The Opera, The Lion King, Grease and more!

Watch James Corden—and a slew of the incredible 2016 Tony Award nominees—perform the first number to kick off Broadway's Biggest Night. 


West Coast viewers can watch the 70th Annual Tony Awards at 8/7c on CBS and stream through CBS All Access.
