2017 Tony Awards Will Return To the Historic Radio City Music Hall
The American Theatre Wing’s 71st Annual Tony Awards will return to the historic venue, Radio City Music Hall, airing live on Sunday, June 11, 2017, (8:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. The Tony Awards, which honors theatre professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway, has been broadcast on CBS since 1978. The Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.
The Tony Awards have a longstanding tradition of taking place at Radio City Music Hall, dating back to 1997. The show was held there every year until 2010 – except when the Hall underwent renovations in 1999 – and again from 2013 to 2015.
The official eligibility cut-off date for the 71st Annual Tony Awards will be April 27, 2017, for all Broadway productions opening in the 2016-2017 season. Productions which meet all other eligibility requirements and open on or before the eligibility date are considered eligible for 2017 Tony Award nominations.
The Nominations for the 2017 Tony Awards will be announced live on May 2, 2017, from New York City.
