Broadway: Great News as Tony Awards Returning to Radio City, Live Across the US on June 12th


The Tony Awards are back to normal!

Returning to Radio City June 12th on CBS. What great news!

The 75th anniversary show will also air live across the country with no delays in any time zones.

The fun starts at 7pm on Paramount Plus and then moves to the network at 8pm.

No host yet but the shows and stars will include Hugh Jackman with “The Music Man,” Patti Lupone with “Company,” and Beanie Feldstein with “Funny Girl.”

Plus, we’ll see “MJ The Michael Jackson Musical,” and plenty of other big entertainments. I’m hopeful “Girl from the North Country” will be featured. It should win Best Musical or at least be nominated.

And Daniel Craig and Ruth Negga will there for “Macbeth.” So CBS has a chance to some nice ratings!

Telling you now: There will also obviously be some kind of all star tribute to Stephen Sondheim.
