    There were plenty of local faces at the Tony Awards on Sunday night. Medfield actress Uzo Aduba, best known for “Orange Is the New Black,” was a presenter during the ceremony. Backstage, she posed with fellow presenter and former “Glee” star Matthew Morrison. Walking the red carpet at Radio City Music Hall was Martha’s Vineyard chef Chris Fischer, who accompanied his wife, Amy Schumer, who was nominated for her role in “Meteor Shower.” Sara Bareilles and Joe Tippett aren’t technically local, but they did meet during production of Bareilles’s musical “Waitress,” which began in Cambridge at the American Repertory Theater. Bareilles cohosted the Tonys with Josh Groban.
