The Tony Awards instill cultural appreciation for American theatre by celebrating Broadway excellence with the world
About The Tony Awards
The Tony Awards celebrate Broadway with twenty-four award categories that annually honor performers, directors, productions, and more. The live broadcast of the Tonys is a vehicle for global audiences to experience the people and productions that define extraordinary American theatre every year.
Since the 1900’s, Broadway has represented the highest level of commercial theatre in the English-speaking world since. Since 1947, The Tonys have marked Broadway theatre’s most prestigious award. Broadcast live on CBS beginning in 1978, The Tonys help illuminate and validate American theatre by reaching national and global audiences. The awards reflect the legacy of their namesake, Antoinette “Tony” Perry, a figure in women’s history and an instrumental pioneer in establishing American theatre in past and present. Today, The Tony Awards remain the pinnacle acknowledgment in Broadway, commanding theatre’s recognition as a timelessly relevant artform, and platform for advancing national culture.
The Tony Awards are co-presented with The Broadway League. The Tonys returned to their historic home at Radio City Musical Hall this June.
