2018 Tonys presentation order: Which categories will be announced first on 72nd Tony Awards?

We’ve unearthed the running order of the 2018 Tony Awards hosted by Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban on CBS on Sunday, June 10. Over the course of upwards of three-and-half-hours, winners will be announced in 26 competitive categories. Below is the order in which the 72nd Tonys will unfold.

The eight design awards will be handed out in the half hour before the show goes live at 8 p.m. ET as will the Tony for Best Orchestrations. Those winners will be showcased throughout the telecast, with inserts of their acceptance speeches.

As usual, the first award on the broadcast will be one of the featured acting races (this year it is on the musical side of the aisle) while the show closes with a big one, Best Musical. In between, the winners of the other 15 Tonys races will be revealed as detailed in the presentation order below.
