CBS and Tony Award Productions will celebrate Broadway’s highly anticipated return to live theatre with a multi-platform event “The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back!” on Sunday, Sept. 26 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on the CBS Television Network. The event will also be available to stream live and on-demand on Paramount+ and on the CBS app.
This very special event will celebrate the return to live theatre with unforgettable performances and commemorate the 74th Annual Tony Awards for the pandemic-shortened 2019-2020 broadway season in a four-hour event across multiple platforms.
“The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back!” will bring the excitement of Broadway to viewers through a live concert event, featuring superstar Broadway entertainers and Tony Award winners reuniting on stage to perform beloved classics and celebrate the joy and magic of live theatre. The celebration of Broadway’s reopening continues with special performances by the three Tony-nominated Best Musical contenders, followed by the live presentation of three Tony Awards, including Best Play, Best Revival of a Play, and Best Musical. Other winners will be celebrated throughout the broadcast.
Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music, Live Events and Alternative Programming for CBS Entertainment, shared his excitement about the broadcast in a press release:
“We are thrilled to bring the best of Broadway to television viewers who have been through so much without the joys, comfort, and excitement that live theatre provides. With the combined power of CBS and Paramount+, the show will honor this year’s Tony Award nominees and winners in a new format unlike any other, and celebrate the iconic music, memorable performances, and unique personalities that make Broadway so special.”
