It’s the news you have been waiting for!

Tony Award Productions announced on August 21 that they will present the American Theatre Wing’s 74th Annual Tony Awards® digitally.

In January 2021 Tony Award Productions made the following announcement:

Voting for the 74th Annual Tony Awards will take place between March 1 and March 15, 2021. We will present the 74th Annual Tony Awards, which were originally scheduled to take place in 2020, in coordination with the re-opening of Broadway.

Additional information, including a date and platform for the awards ceremony, will be announced soon.

The Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.

The nominations for the 74th annual Tony Awards were announced by past Tony-winner James Monroe Iglehart on October 15. Watch on our YouTube channel.

“Though unprecedented events cut the 2019-2020 Broadway season short, it was a year full of extraordinary work that deserves to be recognized,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League, and Heather Hitchens, President & CEO of the American Theatre Wing, in a statement. “We are thrilled not only to have found a way to properly celebrate our artists’ incredible achievements this season, but also to be able to uplift the entire theatre community and show the world what makes our Broadway family so special at this difficult time. The show must go on, no matter what – and it will.”

The Antoinette Perry “Tony” Award, which was founded by the American Theatre Wing in 1947, is bestowed annually on theatre professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway. The Tony is one of the most coveted awards in the entertainment industry and the annual telecast – the night America watches Broadway – is considered one of the most prestigious programs on television.
