The Emmys and Oscars in L.A have come and gone, but in NYC, we’re just gearing up. Spring brings with it cherry blossoms in Central Park and a slew of new productions on Broadway that culminates with the Tony Awards. This year the 67th annual award ceremony will air live on CBS on Sunday June 9 from Radio City Music Hall. The eligibility cut-off date for 2012-2013 season is April 25 with the nominations to be announced on April 30.
This month The Tony Awards Administration Committee announced its lifetime achievement recipients, which included Bernard “Bernie” Gersten, Executive Producer of Lincoln Center Theater, Scenic Designer Ming Cho Lee and Paul Libin, Executive Vice President of Jujamcyn Theatres. In addition, theatergoers can view unique content from and about this season’s musicals and plays eligible to receive Tony Awards by visiting Spotlight On, a program, which includes plot summaries, interesting trivia, cast albums, scripts, links to shows’ social media, production history, downloadable music and more. Spotlight On will be updated throughout the season, currently, users can explore over twenty shows with more being added every day.
If you are interested in going to the 2013 Tony Awards there will be a limited number of tickets made available to the public starting April 30. The American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards are presented each year by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.
