The Tony Awards Administration Committee met on October 13 for the first time this season to decide the eligibility of Broadway productions for the American Theatre Wing's 2017 Tony Awards®, presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing. The Committee will continue to meet regularly throughout the 2016-2017 Broadway season to make eligibility determinations.
The Committee confirmed the eligibility of two Broadway productions, Paramour and Cats, for the 2017 Tony Awards®. Other shows will be discussed at future meetings.
In addition, the Committee determined that the newly renovated Hudson Theatre will be a Tony eligible theatre beginning in the 2016-2017 season. The theatre, located on West 44th Street, is expected to reopen as a Broadway house this spring. The venue has not housed a Broadway show since 1968.
The 71st Annual Tony Awards will be broadcast on Sunday, June 11, 2017, live on the CBS Television Network from 8-11 p.m. ET (delayed PT).
