The 72nd annual Tony Awards take place on Sunday, June 10. While the Tonys telecast will go out live to TV viewers on the east coast beginning at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, the show will be delayed for west coast fans. The Tony Awards will be available to cable and satellite TV subscribers on the CBS website and app as it airs in each time zone. The ceremony takes place just blocks away from Broadway at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan. Past Tony nominees Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban host the three-hour show.
There will be performances from the four Best Musical nominees (“The Band’s Visit” “Frozen,” “Mean Girls” and “SpongeBob SquarePants” ) and the three Best Musical Revival contenders (“Carousel,” “My Fair Lady” and “Once on This Island”).
We are predicting the winners of all 26 categories at the Tony Awards. Our official odds are derived from the predictions of readers like you. “The Band’s Visit” will win five Tonys, including the coveted prize of Best Musical. The revival of 1957 Best Musical champ “Hello, Dolly!” will four awards while another staging of a classic, Rodgers and Hammerstein‘s “Carousel,” will win three.
On the play front, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will take home six awards, including Best Play and Director. In addition, it is predicted to sweep the design awards. However, it will be the revival of “Angels in America” that dominates the acting races, with wins for lead Andrew Garfield and featured players Nathan Lane and Denise Gough. And Glenda Jackson looks like a lock to win her first Tony for her return to the stage in a revival of Edward Albee‘s “Three Tall Women.” She’ll become the 24th Triple Crown winner as she already has a pair of Oscars and Emmys.
