Tony awardThe 2021 Tonys will be one for the history books.

Due to a shortened season in 2020, no Tonys were handed out last year. As a result, awards organizers decided to stage the 2020 awards THIS year.

First up, 2020 Tony nominees were announced last October with an abbreviated season that resulted in a shortened list of Tony nods, That included one of the strangest nominations in Tony history -- as Aaron Tveit became the ONLY entry in the Leading Actor in a Musical category (for Moulin Rouge! The Musical).

Next up, watch for a delayed ceremony that will take place on Sunday, September 26, 2021 in a four-hour presentation unlike any Tony Awards show ever. And it all starts with a majority of winners being revealed on Paramount+ starting at 7PM ET in a presentation hosted by Broadway superstar Audra McDonald beginning at 7 p.m.-9 p.m. ET/PT\

Two hours later, watch for a live concert beginning at 9PM ET on network CBS entitled  Broadway’s Back! featuring the three current Best Musical nominees -- Jagged Little Pill, Moulin Rouge!, and Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.


Performances from Tina: The Tina Turner Musical. Moulin Rouge!, and Jagged Little Pill
will be featured during a two-hour presentation on September 26th beginning at 9PM ET on CBS.

Meanwhile, watch for more updates including the announcement of big winners when the 2020 Tony Awards finally airs in 2021.

Just up ahead, check out more info on Tony trivia and history, along with the complete list of 2020 Tony Award nominees currently in contention, and related resources around the web:
