Nominees for the 75th Annual Tony Awards will be announced by Tony winner Adrienne Warren and three-time Tony nominee Joshua Henry. As previously reported, the announcement will be broadcast live on YouTube May 9 at 9 AM ET.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to kick off our 75th Anniversary with Adrienne and Joshua, two of the most talented powerhouse performers on Broadway,” says American Theatre Wing President and CEO Heather Hitchens and Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin in a statement. “After the challenges that our community has faced over the past two years, celebrating the artistry of our nominees has never felt more poignant than it does now.”
The nominations announcement was recently postponed to May 9 from the previously announced May 3, to allow nominators a chance to see all Tony eligible performances—several recent breakthrough cases of COVID on Broadway have made this particularly challenging this year. The eligibility cut-off date was also moved to May 4, and the Meet the Nominees press event to May 12.
Following last year's two-part broadcast shared by CBS and streamer Paramount+, the 2022 Tony Awards will include an hour of exclusive programming streaming on Paramount+ June 12 from 7 PM ET, followed by the three-hour main awards ceremony airing live on CBS and streaming simultaneously on Paramount+ (for premium-level subscribers only) from 8 PM ET, making this year's ceremony the first in Tony Awards history to be available live nationwide. The broadcast will also be available to stream on demand on Paramount+ for all membership tiers following the live stream.
In-person tickets for the ceremony will become available at TonyAwards.com/Tickets beginning May 9 at 9 AM ET.
