The Tony Awards has announced plans to present LIVE! From the Red Carpet, a live-streamed red-carpet special helmed by TV and stage star Darren Criss (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella). The two-hour-30-minute special will air from 5:30pm to 8pm ET on TonyAwards.com.
Criss and Osnes will be joined by soon-to-be Broadway star George Takei, serving as the live stream’s official fan correspondent. In addition, Randi Zuckerberg will serve as the tech/social correspondent, with Blake Ross as the theater correspondent, and Emilio Sosa as the fashion correspondent.
The live stream will also include behind-the-scenes features showcasing the nominated shows and actors of 2014-15 Broadway season. The live special will be produced by red carpet specialist Eddie Delbridge (E! Live From the Red Carpet) in conjunction with Serino/Coyne and Getty Images Video.
The live stream will also be presented as part of the Times Square Simulcast via Clear Channel’s SpectacolorHD screens in New York City’s Times Square.
