The 2023 Tony Awards will take place Sunday, June 11, in NYC. Read on below to learn more.
How and When to Watch
While the ceremony runs as one large event at the United Palace for in-person audiences, the 76th annual Tony Awards are split into two parts for viewers at home.
A pre-show hosted by Skylar Astin and Julianne Hough will see the presentation of the first round of Tony Awards during the exciting pre-show telecast, and a few performances. The Tony Awards: Act One will air on Pluto TV on Sunday, June 11, from 6:30-8:00PM. Viewers can access the show on their smart TV, streaming device, mobile app, or online by going to Pluto TV and clicking on the “Pluto TV Celebrity” channel (no payment, registration, or sign-in required).
At 8PM, The 76th Annual Tony Awards will air on the CBS Television Network, and stream live and on demand on Paramount+. Academy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Ariana DeBose will host the ceremony for the second year in a row live from the historic United Palace in New York City’s Washington Heights.
