Jonathan Groff won his first Tony Award and the internet is celebrating. It’s hard not to be happy for the ‘Merrily We Roll Along’ star.

Jonathan Groff is a very hard guy to root against. This year, Groff’s been lighting up the stage as Frank in Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Lindsay Mendez.

Toward the end of the  Tony ceremony, Groff was announced as Tony winner for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical. The entire auditorium exploded with elation.

Despite the fact that Groff is only 39 year of age, his Tony award felt beyond overdue to the theater community.
