Tony Award Productions released the following statement on March 25 regarding the American Theatre Wing’s 2020 Tony Awards®, presented by the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing:
The 74th Annual Tony Awards, scheduled to air live on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, June 7th from Radio City Music Hall in New York City, will be postponed and rescheduled at a later date, in coordination with our broadcast partner. The health and safety of the Broadway community, artists and fans are of the utmost importance to us.
We will announce new dates and additional information once Broadway opens again.
We are looking forward to celebrating Broadway and our industry when it is safe to do so.
Whilst the theatre industry rallies around to do everything it can to say alive during this time, there is no doubt that this period will mark one of the darkest times in theatre history.
