The who’s who of the Broadway world were squished together in a small holding pen while waiting to walk the red carpet at the 75th Tony Awards.
Andrew Garfield, Jessica Chastain, and Sarah Paulson were among the celebs who crammed into a tiny corner outside Radio City Music Hall Sunday evening.
“Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams, Zach Braff, and Billy Porter were just a few of the names stood near each other while A-lister Samuel L. Jackson was scolded by a security guard for leaning against a guard rail in the crowded street corner.
Broadway legend Chita Rivera, 89, was also seen patiently waiting nearby, while Bryan Cranston, Bernadette Peters, and Lin-Manuel Miranda were escorted to the front of the pack.
The “Spider-Man: No Way Home” star waited almost 30 minutes to have his photo taken on the carpet, chatting away to Chastain before waving to his “Tick Tick Boom” co-star, Vanessa Hudgens.
The “High School Musical” alum initially skipped the carpet, but returned to the waiting pen to snap selfies with a pal as reporters and photographers started packing up.
Sarah Silverman was thrilled to see Patti LuPone, who later took home an award for her role in “Company,” giving her a big hug and telling her she loved her outfit.
Hugh Jackman, whose arrival elicited some of the biggest cheers from the onlooking crowd, was seen embracing his co-star Sutton Foster, while Michael Jackson’s kids Paris and Prince walked past on their way into the theatre.
Meanwhile, Alfie Allen and Sam Rockwell were heard chatting, with Rockwell asking the British actor if he’d ever been inside the famed Manhattan venue.
“It’s fking huge,” Rockwell exclaimed.
