CBS PRESENTS “THE 76TH ANNUAL TONY AWARDS” TO AIR LIVE SUNDAY, JUNE 11, 2023
The Tony Awards to Celebrate the Best of Broadway from a New Location, United Palace in New York City
CBS presents THE 76TH ANNUAL TONY AWARDS, which will broadcast live from the United Palace in New York City on Sunday, June 11, 2023, on the CBS Television Network and streaming live and on demand on Paramount+*. More information on the special, honoring the 2022-2023 Broadway season, will be available in the coming months.
Nominations for the 2022 Tony Awards will be announced on Tuesday, May 2.
For the first time, the Tony Awards will be presented at the historic United Palace. The United Palace opened in 1930 as one of five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres,” premiere vaudeville and movie houses located in four boroughs of New York City and New Jersey. With nearly 3,400 seats, the United Palace is Manhattan’s fourth largest theatre and hosts concerts, movie premieres, film shoots and other events. The United Palace serves the Washington Heights community by showcasing the performing and visual art of local artists – many of them school children – and housing the non-profit Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance.
“We are excited to bring the Tony Awards to the historic United Palace for the first time. As we celebrate the best of this Broadway season and 76 years of the Tony Awards, we look forward to ushering in a new golden age for the show from this majestic, golden age theatre,” said Heather Hitchens, president and CEO of the American Theatre Wing, and Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League.
The Tony Awards, which honor theater professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway, are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing. The Tony Awards have aired on CBS since 1978.
The Tony Awards are produced in collaboration with Tony Award Productions, a joint venture of The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, and White Cherry Entertainment. Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss are executive producers for White Cherry Entertainment. Weiss will serve as director.
