For the third year in a row, Oscar winner Ariana DeBose will host the Tony Awards, taking place on Sunday, June 16. DeBose will also serve as producer and will choreograph the opening number.

DeBose, a Tony nominee herself, hosted the 2022 and 2023 Tonys telecasts, and earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Variety Special last year.

The 77th annual Tony Awards will be presented at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. As in past years, it will be broadcast live on CBS from 8pm to 11pm ET (5pm to 8pm PT), and it will also stream on Paramount+ in the United States (live and on demand for Paramount+ with Showtime subscribers, or on-demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers the day after it airs).

CBS and Pluto TV will also partner to present the first round of awards as part of the preshow special The Tony Awards: Act One, with further details to be announced at a later date.

Nominations for the 2024 Tony Awards will be announced on Tuesday, April 30. The Tony Awards are produced in collaboration with Tony Award Productions, a joint venture of the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, and White Cherry Entertainment. Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss are executive producers for White Cherry Entertainment. Weiss will serve as director.
