Mark your calendars: the 71st annual Tony Awards have an official date.
The American Theatre Wing’s awards ceremony honoring the toast of Broadway’s upcoming 2016-17 season will be held on June 11, 2017, and will be broadcast live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET (with a tape delay for the west coast, as usual).
Nominations for the Tonys will be announced on May 2; the eligibility cut-off date for Broadway productions to be considered is April 27. (At present, the closest cut is Anastasia on April 24, though those final April days are all but guaranteed to be filled until the cut-off.)
A location has not yet been announced for the telecast. Head here to see the winners from the James Corden-hosted 2016 Tony Awards back in June.
