It’s official, The 74th annual Tony Awards have a new home at NYC’s Winter Garden Theater. The show, which will honor the 2019-20 Broadway season, is set to take place at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York on Sept. 26. In addition, organizers are planning a viewing party at the Broadway Theatre, where attendees will be able to watch the Paramount+ stream and the CBS telecast of the show. You will also be able to watch the live stream from the comfort of your own home on Paramount+. Any attendees will have to show proof of vaccination in order to watch the show, as well as be in it. This year’s Tony Awards were originally set to take place on June 7, 2020, at its recent home of Radio City Music Hall, but the pandemic forced organizers to postpone. It’s now scheduled for Sept. 26, airing as a four hour event. You will be able to access the show via Paramount+, The CBS App, and CBS. It’s unclear why the show is changing locations, but the Winter Garden Theatre has significantly less seating capacity than Radio City Music Hall or the Beacon Theatre, which also has hosted the Tonys in recent years. We checked Radio City’s website and the calendar doesn’t appear to be booked out on the Tony’s date, but we can only guess the reason for the venue change. Let us know your thoughts on the subject, and if you’re excited to see the Tony’s after Broadway’s long silence due to the challenges of Covid-19.
