NEW YORK (AP) — The Tony Awards are going back to the place where the Rockettes high-kick it.
The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, joint producers of the show that honors the best of Broadway, said Monday that the glittery event will be broadcast live by CBS from Radio City Music Hall on June 9.
Producers of the show were forced to find a new home after Cirque du Soleil moved into the 6,000-seat Rockefeller Center arena with its acrobatic rock opera “Zarkana” in 2011.
The Tonys had been hosted at Radio City from 1997-2010. For the past two years, the Tonys were handed out at the Beacon Theater on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
