Tony Awards announce date and new venue

The Tony Awards have announced the date and venue for next year’s Broadway awards.

The 76th Annual Tony Awards will take place at the United Palace in New York City’s Washington Heights on Sunday 11 June 2023, and will be broadcast live by CBS in the US, and streamed live and on demand on Paramount+.

United Palace is a new home for the awards. The United Palace first opened in 1930 as one of five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres” offering vaudeville and movies 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.

The Tony Awards eligibility cut-off date for the 2022-2023 season is 27 April 2023 for all Broadway productions which meet the eligibility requirements, and the nominations will be announced on Tuesday 2 May 2023.

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

Heather Hitchens, President and CEO of the American Theatre Wing and Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League, said in a joint statement: “We are excited to bring the Tony Awards to the historic United Palace for the first time. As we celebrate the best of this Broadway season and 76 years of the Tony Awards, we look forward to ushering in a new golden age for the show from this majestic, golden age theatre.”

The Tony Awards go back as far as 1947, and are bestowed annually on theatre professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway.

The awards show is produced in collaboration with Tony Award Productions, a joint venture of The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, and White Cherry Entertainment. Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss are executive producers for White Cherry Entertainment. Weiss will serve as director.
