A spokesperson for the Tony Awards told Playbill.com that the Tonys have a multi-year contract with the Beacon Theatre.
The 65th Annual Tony Awards ceremony, which was hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and aired June 12 on CBS, was the first Tony broadcast to air live from the Beacon, which is part of the Madison Square Garden portfolio of venues. Radio City Music Hall, the home of the Tony Awards for several years, was unavailable for this past year's awards show because of the Cirque du Soleil show Zarkana, which will likely return to Radio City next season.
The Tony Awards are presented by the American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League.
The Beacon Theatre is located at 2124 Broadway between West 74th and 75th streets.
