Will the Tonys Return to the Beacon Theatre in 2016?

first_img View Comments The Tony Awards may head back uptown in 2016. Because of a planned summer run of a show featuring the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall, the ceremony would instead be held at the (smaller and less central) Beacon Theatre, reports The New York Times. The Tonys took place at the Upper West Side venue in 2011 and 2012 due to a Cirque du Soleil engagement.The Rockettes show would likely be a revised version of New York Spring Spectacular, with performances set to take place from June 15 through August 7.The Tony Awards ceremony was held in a Broadway theater from 1967 (the year the event was first televised nationally) to 1996 and again in 1999. Before that, the Tonys were presented from a hotel ballroom.last_img
