Tony Awards 2016 set date for June 5
The good news: a date has been announced for the 70th annual Tony Awards. The bad news: The night that celebrates the best and brightest of the Great White Way probably won’t take place at Radio City.
The Broadway League and American Theatre Wing confirmed that the 2016 Tony Awards will be held on Sunday, June 5. Continuing in the tradition of the past 37 years, the ceremony will air on CBS but the location of the show remains in flux, thanks to a change in the schedule of the Rockettes’ New York Spring Spectacular. A move to early summer will cause the production to run from June 15 to Aug. 7 at Radio City Music Hall, the traditional home of Broadway’s big night.
The official cut-off date for eligable Broadway productions of the 2015-2016 season is April 26. Nominations for the 2016 Tony Awards will be announced on April 29. Head here to see who won at this year’s ceremony.
