Tony Awards nominees get together to meet, greet and say 'Cheese!'

What happens when more than a hundred of Broadway's finest get together to take a picture?

You can find out by watching this video taken as Tony Awards officials organized their first nominees' class photo in four years.

All of this year's nominees were invited to show up for the shoot before the annual Tony luncheon on Thursday at the Plaza in New York. About 110 did, assembling outside the hotel to meet and greet before being hustled into position by a determined production staff.
As you scan the crowd, you can pick out stage veterans like five-time Tony winner Angela Lansbury -- who could bring home a record sixth prize in June for "A Little Night Music"-- and Hollywood stars like Scarlett Johansson, who made her Broadway debut in "A View From the Bridge." Other familiar faces include Viola Davis, Kelsey Grammer, Valerie Harper, Sean Hayes, Liev Schreiber and Denzel Washington.

Here's the result:
