Tony Awards Set For June 10 at Beacon Theatre
The New York City-based ceremony will air live on CBS.
The Tony Awards will be broadcast live from New York City's Beacon Theatre on Sunday, June 10.
It will be the Tonys' 66th anniversary and the second year for the ceremony at the Beacon after moving venues from Radio City Music Hall, its famed former home, in 2011.
In keeping with tradition since 1978, CBS will air the three-hour, Sunday-night ode to Broadway and theater professionals.
Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment return as executive producers. In addition, Weiss serves as director for the 13th consecutive year.
The slate of nominees, meanwhile, will be announced in early May; cutoff date for Tony eligibility is April 26. Last year, the hit musical Book of Mormon and play War Horse swept the ceremony, resulting in first-time Tonys for Mormon -- and South Park -- creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. Neil Patrick Harris hosted for a second time.
Given Harris' love of theater and popularity as Tonys master of ceremonies, there's a possibility the actor will come back for a third go-round.
