On Sunday night June 11, a handful of Broadway artists will go home from the United Palace as Tony Award winners. But that trophy isn't always what it's all about. Not really.
At a recent press event, Playbill asked the 2023 nominees, "The Tony is the award, but what is the reward?" We got quite a few heartfelt and emotional answers. They love the work. They love the community. They love storytelling and changing the world. Someone pass the tissues... See some of their answers in the video above.
The 76th Annual Tony Awards nominations were announced May 2. Winners will be named in a starry ceremony at Washington Heights' United Palace Theatre June 11. The Tony Awards: Act One, a 90-minute pre-show of live and exclusive content, will stream on Pluto TV beginning at 6:30 PM ET, with hosts and further details to be announced. The main awards ceremony will follow at 8 PM ET, hosted by West Side Story Oscar winner Ariana DeBose. The awards portion will broadcast live on CBS, and stream live (for premium-level subscribers) via Paramount+. All Paramount+ subscribers will have on demand access to the broadcast beginning June 12.
