Jonathan Groff and Daniel Radcliffe Earn Surprise Standing Ovation During First ‘Merrily’ Show Since Tonys

The Broadway show “Merrily We Roll Along” had an exceptional weekend, clinching four Tony Awards at the recent ceremony. The show won Best Revival of a Musical and Best Orchestrations. Jonathan Groff took home Best Lead Actor in a Musical, while Daniel Radcliffe won Best Featured Actor in a Musical. These awards marked the first Tony wins for both Groff and Radcliffe, and the duo’s mutual elation was a heartwarming highlight of the night.

During the first performance following their big wins, the audience gave Groff, Radcliffe, and the rest of the cast a surprise standing ovation. This spontaneous celebration occurred right after the scene where the characters sing about handing Groff’s character a Tony Award. The crowd’s enthusiastic cheers briefly paused the show, creating a memorable and touching moment for everyone involved.

For Groff, who had been nominated multiple times before finally winning a Tony, this outpouring of support was particularly special. The mid-show ovation underscored the audience’s appreciation and added to the joyful atmosphere surrounding “Merrily We Roll Along’s” recent success.
