2015-16 Tony Awards Schedule Announced
Tony Time is BACK! With the Fall 2015 season behind us and nothing but Spring 2016 ahead, it’s already time to start preparing for Broadway’s biggest and best night; The Tony Awards! While we still have over five months until the actual night, the season’s events are already lining up as we prepare to celebrate another successful year on Broadway! Today, Luner on Theatre brings you the exciting news that the calendar of events for the 2015-16 Tony Awards is now set!
The American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League have announced the calendar of events leading up to the annual Tony Awards Ceremony. April 28th, 2016 will be the final date for shows to open in order to be considered eligible for the 2015-16 Broadway season. The 2016 Tony Award nominations announcement will be May 3rd, 2016 from the Diamond Horseshoe Nightclub (Pictured Above Right) at the Paramount Hotel. As always, a live stream of the event will be available online. The nominees will Meet The Press May 4th, 2016 speaking to various media outlets about their nominations at the Paramount Hotel. On May 19th, 2016, the annual Tony Nominees Luncheon will take place when nominees receive their nomination certificate and celebrate one another’s achievements. A very busy and exciting season ahead!
Broadway’s biggest and most celebrated evening, The Tony Awards, will take place June 12th, 2016 at The Beacon Theatre (Pictured Left) in New York City. The move from the award ceremony’s usual venue, the famed Radio City Music Hall, comes as Radio City’s spring spectacular moves to the summer season for 2016. This placed technical rehearsals directly during the time frame The Tony Awards would need to be in residence. The return to The Beacon comes as no surprise to many as The Tony Awards was previously presented at the venue in both 2011 and 2012.
