News   Tony Awards to Open With Pop Song Medley
 
The 64th Annual Antoinette Perry "Tony" Awards, which CBS will broadcast live June 13 from Radio City Music Hall, will kick off with a medley of pop songs currently featured in Broadway musicals.

The New York Post reports that the working title for the opening number is "Pop Songs You Might Not Know Are on Broadway."

Expect to hear tunes from most of the musical productions that debuted on Broadway this season, including Million Dollar Quartet (one of the 22 well-known songs featured in the production); Come Fly Away (one of the Frank Sinatra standards), Promises, Promises (one of the Burt Bacharach-Hal David classics), A Little Night Music (perhaps Stephen Sondheim's "Send in the Clowns"), American Idiot (one of the Green Day hits), Fela! (possibly the song "Zombie!") and more.

Sean Hayes, a 2010 Tony nominee for his performance in Promises, Promises, will host the 64th Annual Antoinette Perry "Tony" Awards. The Tony Awards will air live on CBS from 8-11 PM ET. The Tonys are presented by The Broadway League and The American Theatre Wing.

The evening will be executive produced by Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment.
