Both shows will be be held at New York's landmark Winter Garden Theatre.
The Tony Awards tapped two big stars to host different aspects of Broadway’s biggest night on Sept. 26. Audra McDonald will host the 74th annual Tony Awards, which will stream live at 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. PT) on Paramount+. Immediately following that two-hour awards show, Leslie Odom Jr. will host The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back, a two-hour celebration of Broadway that will air on CBS at 9 pm. ET/PT.
The CBS special will be a live concert event featuring Broadway entertainers re-uniting on stage to perform Broadway classics. The special will include performances from the three Tony-nominated best musical contenders -- Jagged Little Pill, Moulin Rouge! the Musical and Tina—The Tina Turner Musical -- followed by the live presentation of three Tony Awards: best musical, best play and best revival of a play. (There is no category this year for best revival of a musical.)
Both shows will be be held at New York's landmark Winter Garden Theatre, and will honor “the outstanding shows, performances and artistry of the 2019-2020 Broadway season, which was brought to a halt by the COVID-19 pandemic,” according to a statement.
