The two, who recently made their own Broadway debuts, will host the ceremony on June 10; much of it will be broadcast on CBS.
Led by the R&B hitmaker John Legend, NBC’s live, multicultural telecast of the early-1970s musical was a conceptual and artistic triumph.
Mr. Legend, Sara Bareilles, Alice Cooper and Brandon Victor Dixon, the lead actors in NBC’s upcoming live performance of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” discuss the play, their faith and musical theater.
Ms. Bareilles, who composed the music and wrote the lyrics to the hit show, will succeed Jessie Mueller in the lead role on March 31.
While “Waitress” gathers steam and may be destined to be a hit, the final curtain fell for “Tuck Everlasting,” which had a last-minute uptick in revenue.
This musical, set in a diner and scored by Sara Bareilles, centers on a woman stuck in an unhappy marriage.
