The 2019-2020 Tony Awards will be held at the Winter Garden Theatre this September in front of an audience.
The Tony Awards will also host a viewing party, including live entertainment and hosts, for industry members at the Broadway Theatre. A tented after-party will follow, according to the invite.
All guests will need to provide proof of vaccination for entry and both events have set a black tie dress code. The information was sent to Tony voters in invites Wednesday and confirmed by a spokesperson for the Tony Awards.
Details on what will take place in the Winter Garden Theatre remain unclear. The Tony Awards had previously announced that the ceremony will be held Sept. 26, 2021, in a two-part event airing across different CBS platforms.
At 7 p.m. that night, a presentation of awards is scheduled to air on Paramount+. At 9 p.m., CBS is scheduled to air a special featuring performances from the Tony-nominated musicals, as well as a live presentation of the awards for Best Play, Best Revival of a Play and Best Musical.
A spokesperson for the Tony Awards did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the details of the invite.
The Winter Garden Theatre is home to “The Music Man,” which is scheduled to begin performances Dec. 20. The Broadway Theatre was previously home to “West Side Story,” which announced Monday that it will not reopen.
In recent years, the Tony Awards ceremony has been held at Radio City Music Hall. The 2019-2020 Tony Awards were originally scheduled to take place at Radio City Music Hall on June 7, 2020, but the event was postponed by the pandemic.
Due to the pandemic, Tony Award organizers decided to only consider productions in a shortened season, with an eligibility cut-off date of Feb. 19, 2020. Voting for the 18 eligible productions took place in March 2021.
The Tony Awards ceremony has been broadcast on CBS since 1978. This is the first time the event will air on the new subscription service Paramount+.
