2020 Tony Awards to Be Postponed

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Tony Award Productions has announced that the 2020 Tony Awards will be postponed.

Two shows from the ongoing season that had just entered preview performances — Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Hangmen — recently announced that they will not resume performances when Broadway reopens. Additionally, Lincoln Center Theater’s Flying Over Sunset as well as Roundabout Theatre Company’s Birthday Candles and Caroline, or Change have been rescheduled to open in the fall.

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 is 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.
