It has been a rough couple of years for Broadway with theatres shut down for several months and abbreviated awards shows.

Broadway is open once again and the annual awards show – The Tony Awards – returns for its traditional summer presentation.

And with a simulcast on CBS and Paramount+, the Tony’s will be broadcast live nationwide for the first time in Tony’s history. The broadcast will begin on Paramount+ at 7pm and move to CBS at 8pm with the Paramount+ broadcast open to premium level subscribers. The awards show will be available to everyone for streaming on demand at Paramount+ once the awards have concluded.

The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing has set the 75th annual Tony Awards will be held on June 12 live at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Nominees for the 2022 Tony Awards will be revealed on May 3 and will be open to any production that open on February 20, 2020 to April 28, 2022. “Macbeth” starring Ruth Negga and Daniel Craig is set to officially open on April 28 and will be the final show eligible for a nomination.

However, “POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive” will have to wait unti l2023 to be eligible for a Tony Award nomination. The most recent Broadway revival of “West Side Story” closed on February 20, 2020 and never reopened; as a result, the Administration Committee has determined that since not enough of the voters were able to see the production, the musical is not eligible for any Tony Award nominations.
