Broadway is back — and the show will finally go on for the 74th annual Tony Awards, which take place in person Sunday, Sept. 26 at Winter Garden Theatre in New York City after being postponed last year due to the pandemic. Presented by the American Theatre Wing and the Broadway League, and hosted by Audra McDonald and Leslie Odom Jr., the four-hour ceremony will be broadcast live on CBS and Paramount+ starting at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET.
McDonald will open the festivities, which recognize the 2019-2020 Broadway season. Odom Jr. will host live concert portion, The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back, which airs from 6-8 p.m. PT/ET. The evening will include musical performances by David Byrne and the cast of American Utopia, John Legend and the cast of Ain’t Too Proud, a reunion of Hairspray‘s cast and a star-studded finale from the cast of Freestyle Love Supreme that will include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Wayne Brady and many others.
The night’s presenters will include Kerry Butler, Kristin Chenoweth, Darren Criss, Beanie Feldstein, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jordan Fisher, Santino Fontana, Andrew Garfield, Jared Grimes, Josh Groban, Jake Gyllenhaal, Robin De Jésus, Cyndi Lauper, Lachanze, Norm Lewis, André de Shields and many others.
The predictions are also in for theatre’s biggest night, and a mathematical model anticipates that the winners will include The Inheritance for best play, the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Soldier’s Play for best revival of a play, Tom Hiddleston for lead actor for his role in Betrayal and Slave Play‘s Joaquina Kalukango for lead actress, to name just a few forecasts.
