Tony Awards 2017 to Return to Radio City Music Hall
The 2017 Tony Awards will return to Radio City Music Hall, The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing announced Thursday.
Since 1997, the Broadway-lauding awards show has mostly been held at the historic Midtown venue in New York City, with a handful of exceptions. Last year's ceremony took place at the Beacon Theatre, as did the 2011 and 2012 awards.
"Bringing Broadway’s biggest night back to Radio City Music Hall truly feels like returning home," said Heather Hitchens, president of American Theatre Wing, and Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League, in a joint statement. "Over the years, we have created some magical and iconic moments at Radio City — and we are thrilled to return and share the stories of this year’s incredible season on Broadway."
The 71st annual Tony Awards will air live on June 11 (8-11 p.m. ET/delayed PT) on CBS.
The awards eligibility cutoff date for all Broadway productions opening in the 2016-2017 season is April 27. Nominations for the 2017 Tonys will be announced live on May 2.
