The 68th annual edition of the Tony Awards will take place on June 8, 2014 at Radio City Music Hall in the heart of midtown Manhattan. The three-hour telecast, showcasing the best of Broadway, will air live on CBS as it has done since 1978.
These top theater kudos are a favorite of the Emmy Awards. The 2012 Tonys contended at this year’s Emmys (the lag is due to this kudocast airing after the May 31 deadline) winning the Special Class category for awards shows for the fourth year in a row.
This year’s Broadway season will run until April 24, 2014. The nominating committee, comprised of 30 theater professionals, will meet on the weekend of April 26 and nominations will be announced on April 29.
Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment will return as executive producers. Weiss will also serve as director for the 15th consecutive year.
