The 2011 Tony Awards will be executive-produced by Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment.
The awards, Broadway's highest honor, have been broadcast on CBS since 1978. This will be the first year that the show will be broadcast from The Beacon Theatre, which is part of the Madison Square Garden portfolio of venues. (As previously reported, Radio City Music Hall, the home of the Tony Awards for the past several years, is unavailable for this year's awards show.)
The Tony Awards are presented by the American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League.
