Calling all theatre fans! The Tony Awards are happening in June, and we’re about to find out what shows will be honored as the year’s best at Broadway’s biggest night. That’s right: The Tony nominations announcement is coming up this week! If you want to find out which shows are getting nods but aren’t sure where to get the news, don’t sweat it — we’ve got all the details right here.

What time are the Tony nominations?

This year’s Tony nominees will be announced on Tuesday, May 3, at 8:30 a.m. ET, from the Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel in New York City. You can watch the announcement live on TonyAwards.com, and part of the announcement will also air live on CBS This Morning.

Who will be announcing them?

Broadway stars Andrew Rannells (who was nominated for a Tony himself in 2011 for The Book of Mormon) and Patina Miller (a Tony winner in 2013 for Pippin) will announce this year’s nominees.

When are the actual Tony Awards?

The 70th annual Tony Awards will take place in New York’s Beacon Theatre on June 12, 2016. James Corden, who won a Tony in 2012 for his role in One Man, Two Guvnors, is set to host.

Will Hamilton be nominated?

You’ll have to wait for Tuesday to find out! But based on its Grammy win, Pulitzer Prize, and victory in keeping Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill… it’s probably a safe bet that Lin-Manuel Miranda’s historical musical will not throw away its shot at the Tonys, too.
