Vogue is celebrating Broadway’s “most electrifying productions” of the 2015-16 season ahead of the 70th Annual Tony Awards, which will be held on June 12, 2016 at NYC’s Beacon Theatre.

Lensed by Mikael Jansson, “A Revolution on Broadway” features the fresh faces who’ve taken the world of stage by storm, including Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda and Leslie Odom Jr., whose original hip-hop driven musical is currently nominated for a record-setting 16 Tony Awards.

“Alexander Hamilton’s story grabbed ahold of me and never let go,” says Miranda, the Pulitzer Prize-winning creator and star. “I knew this guy.”

As the first play with an all-black and female creative cast and team to premiere on Broadway, Gurira’s Eclipsed–nominated for 6 Tonys–tells the story of five Liberian women near the end of the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003.

“This play is not only the first to feature an all-female cast, author, and director,” says Eclipsed star Nyong’o, “but it is also very explicitly about five women brought together by the perils of war. It’s one of the most emotionally exhausting and spiritually rewarding experiences of my life.”
