Thanks for your help! This spring Tony Awards and Broadway Records announced the first ever Tony Award® Season compilation album, and we asked fans to help select the songs.
We invited each of the Tony-nominated musicals, along with all of the other 2016-2017 Tony season musicals, to contribute a song to this new compilation album. Several of the shows offered fans a vote in selecting the included track. The voting ended on May 14.
The album will be released on CD and digitally at most major music retailers including iTunes/Apple Music on June 9, 2017. The CD is now available for pre-order via Broadway Records and the Tony Awards Store, as well as via Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. A portion of the proceeds from the album will go to the American Theatre Wing and Broadway League’s charitable initiatives.
The cover art features a specially commissioned Tony season illustration by Justin “Squigs” Robertson. The first 1,000 people to buy the album at BroadwayRecords.com and TonyAwardsStore.com will receive a free limited-edition “Lights of Broadway” Tony Nominees 2017 showcard with their purchase. The packaging will include an essay by noted musical theatre historian Jennifer Ashley Tepper, as well as details about each show.
The American Theatre Wing’s 2017 Tony Awards, hosted by Kevin Spacey, will air live from Radio City Music Hall on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, June 11, 2017 (8:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT). Or stream the Tony Awards live across platforms with the CBS All Access subscription service. (Live stream is available in select markets. Visit CBS.com/allaccess for details.) The Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.
