The Tony Awards are currently being held at the Winter Garden Theater. More than a year behind due to the coronavirus pandemic, the award honors the work done on Broadway between April 26, 2019 and February 19, 2020.
After the longest closure in Broadway history, the ceremony will also be an effort to remind viewers that the theater is back. Some of the biggest shows recently reopened with the introduction of safety protocols, including requiring patrons to wear masks and show proof of vaccination.
The ceremony is divided into two parts. Audra McDonald hosts the first two hours when most of the awards are given. Only streamed with Paramount +. The second half of the show, called “Tony Awards Present: Broadway Back!”, Will be hosted by Leslie Odom Jr. and aired on CBS. It will also be streamed on Paramount +. The second half will feature the best musical candidates and the performances of two special Tony Award-winning shows, “Freestyle Love Supreme” and “American Utopia.” It also includes three major awards: Best Musical, Best Play, and Best Play Revival.
Below is a complete list of winners.
