The Tony Awards are taking place tonight at Radio City Music Hall for the first time since June 2019. The awards ceremony, which honors the plays and musicals staged on Broadway and is resuming its traditional calendar after a long pandemic disruption, honors work that opened on Broadway between Feb. 20, 2020, and May 4, 2022. (“Girl From the North Country” opened on March 5, 2020, just a week before theaters shut down for the pandemic.)
Ariana DeBose, the former Broadway understudy turned Oscar winner, is hosting the three-hour broadcast portion of the Tony Awards ceremony, which starts at 8 p.m. Eastern on CBS. Presenters so far have included Jessica Chastain, Bebe Neuwirth and Samuel L. Jackson. And there were performances from some of the past year’s most prominent musicals: “Company,” “Girl From the North Country” and “MJ,” among others.
The CBS broadcast was preceded by a one-hour segment, hosted by Darren Criss and Julianne Hough, that began at 7 p.m. Eastern on Paramount+.
