Tony Awards Telecast Finds Home at Beacon Theatre

The next Tony Awards have found a home – a familiar one.

The Broadway League said Tuesday that the June 12 gala will be held at the 2,900-seat Beacon Theatre on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where the Tonys were handed out 2011-12.

The 6,000-seat Radio City Music Hall has long been the preferred home for the awards because of its size and proximity to Broadway. But Radio City will be booked with the new “Rockettes New York Spectacular.”

CBS will again televise the event.

The official eligibility cut-off date will be April 28, meaning all productions on Broadway that wish to be included must have opened by that date. Nominations will be announced May 3.
