Broadway’s Best: 25 Tony Awards Record Holders

Broadway’s biggest night, the Tony Awards, is almost here. It all gets underway Sunday, June 16, at 6:30 p.m. PT/3:30 p.m. PT with The Tony Awards: Act One, co-hosted by Julianne Hough and Utkarsh Ambudkar. That 90-minute pre-show, where many of the technical awards are presented, streams on Pluto TV (click on the “ET” channel).

Immediately following, at 8:00 p.m. PT/5 p.m. PT, CBS will air the 77th Annual Tony Awards, with Ariana DeBose hosting for the third year in a row. The three-hour show will also stream on Paramount+ in the U.S. Both shows will be held at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City.

The Tony telecast is set to include performances from all five nominees for best musical (Hell’s Kitchen, Illinoise, The Outsiders, Suffs and Water for Elephants) and from three of the four nominees for best revival of a musical (Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club, Merrily We Roll Along and The Who’s Tommy). The Tonys will not include a performance from the fourth nominee for best revival of a musical, Gutenberg! The Musical!, which closed on Jan. 28.

The telecast is also set to feature a performance from Stereophonic, the “play with music” written by Will Butler, formerly of Arcade Fire. Stereophonic tied with Hell’s Kitchen, a musical based on the music of Alicia Keys, for the most nominations of any production this year (13).

To get you primed for Sunday’s show, here’s a list of 25 Tony Awards record-holders.
