Not to be outdone by Neil Patrick Harris and the Hedwig gang, Alan Cumming and the scantily clad cast of Cabaret got down and dirty last night during the 68th annual Tony Awards, which were hosted by Hugh Jackman and broadcast live on CBS.

The 49-year-old Good Wife star reprises his Tony-winning role as the flamboyantly omnisexual Emcee in the Roundabout Theatre Company revival, which opened April 24 at Broadway's Studio 54.

Cumming famously played the Emcee in the Tony-winning 1998 production of the classic Kander and Ebb musical, which ultimately ran for six years. Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, both Tony-nominated for their work 15 years ago, have re-created their direction and choreography for the new revival. The original design team has also returned to transform the theater into a pre-World War II Berlin nightclub.

Oscar nominee Michelle Williams makes her Broadway debut opposite Cumming as damaged cabaret singer Sally Bowles.

The current production, which was only nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Actress in a Musical, did not take home any Tonys. See a full list of winners and nominees here.
