News   2016 Tony Awards Set Date, But Not Location
The 70th Annual Tony Awards will air on CBS-TV June 5, 2016 (8-11 PM ET/delayed PT) live from New York City. The location of the broadcast has not be finalized, as the Tonys continue to negotiate with Radio City Music Hall owners MSG to return to the 6,300-seat space.

The Tony Awards, which honor Broadway professionals for distinguished achievement, have been broadcast on CBS since 1978. The Tony Awards are presented jointly by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.

The eligibility cut-off date will be April 26, 2016, for all Broadway productions opening in the 2015-2016 season. Productions which meet all other eligibility requirements and open on or before the eligibility date are considered eligible for 2016 Tony Award nominations.

Nominations for the 2016 Tony Awards will be announced live April 29.
