The Tony Awards went on as scheduled Sunday night but were dedicated to the victims of the mass shooting at the Orlando gay night club that killed 50 people.

The show's producers sent out a message expressing sympathy to the victims of the massacre.
"Your tragedy is our tragedy," host James Corden told viewers as the show began. "Theater is a place where every race, creed, sexuality is equal, is embraced and is loved. Hate will never win."

Upon hearing the news of the mass shooting, organizers started to think of ways to change the show in order to honor the victims at the ceremony, which awards the best plays and musicals on Broadway.

In addition to making tributes to those who were killed, one such change, apparently, is that the performance of the hit musical "Hamilton," which is expected to win many awards, will not include muskets, USA TODAY reports.

And organizers have created a ribbon to honor the memory of those killed, Entertainment Weekly reports.
