The nominations for the 73rd annual Broadway honors ceremony will be announced in the spring.

The 2019 Tony Awards will take place at New York's Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 9, the American Theatre Wing and the Broadway League announced Thursday.

The awards eligibility cutoff date for all Broadway productions opening in the 2018-2019 season has been set for April 25. Productions that meet all other eligibility requirements and open on or before that date are considered eligible for nominations, which will be announced live on April 30.

Last year, it was revealed that the Tony Awards had entered a new broadcast agreement that will keep the annual ceremony on CBS through 2026. The awards show broadcast has aired on CBS since 1978.

"CBS has been an amazing and collaborative partner in bringing the live arts we honor to their viewers," Heather Hitchens, president of the American Theatre Wing, and Charlotte St. Martin, president of the Broadway League, previously said of the pact. "Their continued support has helped make the Tony Awards an acclaimed television event and has allowed us to bring Broadway to homes all over America."

The 73rd annual Tony Awards — presented by the American Theatre Wing and the Broadway League — will air live on CBS on June 9 at 8 p.m. ET.
