The 2016 Tony Awards telecast has finally found a home

2015-11-26 18:00

New York — The next Tony Awards have found a home — a familiar one but one far from Broadway.

The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing said on Tuesday that the 12 June gala will be held at the 2 900-seat Beacon Theatre on Manhattan's Upper West Side, where the Tonys were handed out in 2012. The announcement also pushed back the day of the ceremony, which had originally been 5 June.

The 6 000-seat Radio City Music Hall has long been the preferred home for the awards because of its size and proximity to Broadway. But Radio City will be booked this summer with the new Rockettes New York Spectacular.

CBS will again televise the event. No host has been announced.

The official eligibility cut-off date will be 28 April, meaning all productions on Broadway that wish to be included must have opened by that date. Nominations will be announced 3 May.

The Beacon is much smaller than Radio City, meaning ticket-rationing and a likely struggle to seat the often large number of show producers. MSG Entertainment, which owns Radio City, also owns the Beacon.
