Will 2011 Tony Awards Play Washington Heights?

News   Will 2011 Tony Awards Play Washington Heights?
The Tony Awards, which have been presented at Radio City Music Hall for over a decade, may have found a new home for next year's celebration of the Broadway season.

As previously reported, Radio City Music Hall is booked for June 2011, so a new venue is needed for the Broadway theatre's biggest night. The New York Post reports that the likely venue for the 2011 Tony Awards will be the United Palace Theatre, which is located at Broadway and 175th Street. CBS, which broadcasts the annual Tony telecast, must still approve the location, according to the New York daily.

No official announcement about the new venue has been made, although Tony Award Productions, a joint venture between the American Theater Wing and the Broadway League, issued a statement to the New York Times back in June: "We have been aware for some time that Radio City Music Hall is not available to us for the 2011 Tony Awards and we are currently exploring a dozen or so possibilities throughout Manhattan for next year's ceremony."

The 2010 Tony Awards were broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall June 13. Sean Hayes hosted.
