“We are so thrilled to bring the magic of Broadway to Broadway’s own historic United Palace,” said Heather Hitchens, President and CEO of the American Theatre Wing and Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League. “The Tony Awards are committed to cultivating and celebrating the incredible theatre community on and off the stage, and are excited to give the next generation of ‘Broadway Bound’ talent this exclusive peek behind the curtain.”

“The United Palace’s opening in 1930 was billed as ‘Times Square entertainment nearer your home,’” said United Palace CEO Mike Fitelson. “The Tony Awards is delivering on that promise first by bringing its showstopping awards program to 175th Street and second by creating additional programming to educate local residents about jobs on Broadway. If young people aren’t inspired to pursue these career paths, they will never know how big to dream. The Tonys understands that talent is widely distributed and doesn’t end at 42nd Street.”

The history of the United Palace begins in 1930 when it opened as one of five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres,” premiere vaudeville and movie houses located in four boroughs and New Jersey. With nearly 3,400 seats the United Palace is Manhattan’s 4th largest theatre, and hosts concerts, movie premieres, film shoots, and other events. The United Palace serves the Washington Heights community by showcasing the performing and visual art of local artists – many of them school children – and housing the non-profit Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance.

Hosted by Ariana DeBose, the American Theatre Wing’s 76th Annual Tony Awards, presented by the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, will air LIVE on Sunday, June 11, 2023 from the historic United Palace Theatre in Washington Heights, in New York City from 8:00-11:00 PM, ET/5:00-8:00 PM, PT on the CBS Television Network, and streaming live and on demand on Paramount+*.

CBS and Pluto TV will present The Tony Awards: Act One, a pre-show of live, exclusive content leading into the 76th Annual Tony Awards.
