Lea Michele commands attention in sleek black dress with cutout detail at the 75th annual Tony Awards in NYC

Lea Michele attended the 75th annual Tony Awards held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Sunday evening.

The 35-year-old performer cut a seriously stylish figure in an eye-catching outfit while posing for a few shots outside of the theatre-centric event.

The actress also posed for several photos with Jonathan Groff, with whom she previously costarred in the first Broadway production of Spring Awakening.

Michele wore a sleek black dress that featured several slits on its midsection during her time at the event.

The Glee actress’ outfit also included a set of puffy sleeves that added a bit of extra glam to her look during the evening.

The Emmy-nominated performer’s dress featured a lengthy bottom portion that obscured her toned legs, and she accessorized with a sparkling set of earrings.

Her voluminous dark brunette hair was tied into a ponytail that fell onto her backside.

Groff opted for a jet-black jacket and a matching set of pants while attending the annual event.

The 37-year-old actor contrasted the dominant color of his outfit with a patterned button-up shirt.

The performers initially met while working on the Off-Broadway production of Spring Awakening, where they portrayed Wendla Bergmann and Melchior Gabor.

The pair also performed in the Broadway version of the play, and Groff was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical.

The two are set to reunite with several of their old castmates to perform a medley of the show’s songs during the annual awards show.

The 75th Annual Tony Awards is celebrating achievement in Broadway productions during the 2021–22 season. 

This year’s ceremony takes place at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City, hosted by West Side Story star Ariana DeBose. 

The nominations were revealed last month, with Michael R. Jackson’s musical A Strange Loop leading the pack with an impressive 11 nominations, including Best Music, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical. 

Meanwhile, Michael Jackson jukebox musical MJ The Musical and Paradise Square also dominated with 10 nominations each, while The Legman Trilogy was the most nominated play.

Major stars, including Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster (‘The Music Man’), Billy Crystal (‘Mr. Saturday Night’), and Sam Rockwell (‘American Buffalo’) are up for acting nominations.

Notably, Daniel Craig’s turn as Macbeth is absent from the nominations list, however, his co-star Ruth Negga has a nod for Best Performance By An Actress in a Leading Role in a Play for her part as Lady Macbeth. 

Oscar-winner DeBose called the honor of hosting the prestigious event ‘a dream come true’ when it was announced last month. 

In a statement, she said: ‘I’m coming home! I’m so honored to celebrate 75 years of excellence in theatre, but more importantly every member of this community who poured themselves into making sure the lights of Broadway have the opportunity to shine brightly once again!’ 

Moving on up: The pair also performed in the Broadway version of the play, and Groff was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical
