Broadway’s biggest night, the annual Tony Awards, is coming up this Sunday! Whether you want to meet up with other theatre fanatics, plan a soiree at your house, or watch alone without any distractions – we’ve got you covered.
The 71st annual ceremony will be hosted by Kevin Spacey and feature appearances by Bette Midler, Anna Kendrick, Keegan-Michael Key, Scarlett Johansson, Josh Groban, Stephen Colbert, Taraji P. Henson, Tina Fey, Olivia Wilde, Ben Platt, Orlando Bloom, Josh Gad and more!
We’re hosting a watch party! The Center and TheaterJones are teaming up to bring you Dallas’ best Tony Awards Watch Party at the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson. See the big show on the big screen with other Broadway super-fans. There will be themed drink & food specials, trivia, Broadway Bingo, and plenty of prize giveaways. RSVP here >>
Watch at home: The Tonys will be broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City right into your home starting at 7:00 p.m. CT on CBS 11. Fun fact: The Center is the local presenter of the broadcast and you might see us during the commercial breaks.
Dallas Theater Center is a winner this year! That’s right, your very own DTC won the 2017 Regional Theatre Tony Award, so you already have cause to celebrate.
Here’s what I’ve heard around the offices at the AT&T Performing Arts Center:
“My hot sports opinion is that Come From Away will surprise and win Best New Musical.” – Kathryn, Group Sales Manager
“You mean besides Bette Midler? I will look forward to seeing Ben Platt & cast in Dear Evan Hansen for sure, but also Eva Noblezada (Miss Saigon), Patti LuPone (War Paint) and the aforementioned Ms. Midler.” – Hector, Manager of Strategic Services
“I hope Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 wins everything!” – Anne, Programming Manager
“I hope Come From Away wins Best Musical, and I’m looking forward to seeing Kevin Spacey as the host!” –Becca, Education and Community Engagement Coordinator
The Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.
