The 2019-2020 Tony Awards will be presented as part of a special four-hour event entitled, “The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back!” on Sunday, September 26.
The evening will kick-off with the presentation of majority of the American Theatre Wing’s 74th Annual Tony Awards at 7pm, which will stream live exclusively on the Paramount+ network.
Immediately following that presentation, from 9pm-11pm, CBS will air a one-of-a-kind live concert event, featuring superstar Broadway entertainers and Tony Award winners re-uniting on stage to perform beloved classics and celebrate the joy and magic of live theatre.
The re-opening of Broadway (which now begins with the return of “Hadestown” on September 2) will be further celebrated with special performances from the three Tony nominated Best Musical contenders -- “Moulin Rouge,” “Tina: The Tina Turner Musical” and “Jagged Little Pill” -- followed by the live presentation of three Tony Awards, including Best Play, Best Revival of a Play and Best Musical. Other winners will be celebrated throughout the broadcast.
More information will be released at later date.
