BREAKING NEWS: Broadway’s biggest night has officially set its venue. It has just been announced that the highly anticipated 74th Annual Tony Awards will be held at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre next month. Produced by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, it will mark the first time in 22 years that the ceremony will be done in one of the 41 houses on Broadway.
Along with the ceremony happening at the Winter Garden, a viewing party, including live entertainment and hosts, will also be held for industry members at the Broadway Theatre (the recent home of West Side Story).
The Tonys were previously held in a Broadway house back in 1999 at Broadway’s Gershwin Theatre. It was also last held in the Winter Garden (previous home of Beetlejuice and the upcoming revival of The Music Man) back in 1975.
Originally this year’s Tony ceremony was initially slated for June 7th, 2020 last year at its longtime home at Radio City Music Hall. However, it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 74th Annual Tony Awards is set for September 26th, 2021 on both CBS and Paramount+. However, this year’s ceremony is going to be done a little bit different as a 2 PART event. It goes like this…..
From there at 9pm EST, CBS will air a full 2 HOUR Live Concert entitled THE TONY AWARDS PRESENTS: BROADWAY’S BACK. It will include performances from this year’s 3 nominated shows for BEST MUSICAL (consisting of Jagged Little Pill, Moulin Rouge, and Tina), some of Broadway’s longest running hits, and more. From there, it will announce Tony winning shows nominated for BEST REVIVAL OF A PLAY, BEST PLAY, and of course BEST MUSICAL.
Who is excited?!!!
