Tony Awards 2019 Live Stream: When And Where To Watch On June 9, It’s the one night of the year that the Broadway stage comes to the small screen. The 73rd annual Tony Awards will celebrate all the new shows from the past season, and theater fans everywhere will want to tune in.
The 2019 Tony Awards air live Sunday, June 9 at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS. The awards show will last about three hours and is expected to wrap up at 11 p.m. EDT.
Those who would rather watch the 2019 Tonys online will need to be CBS All Access customers. The online platform only allows viewers with paid subscriptions to live stream CBS programming. Plans start at $5.99 per month and include a free one-week trial for new users.
The Tony Awards red carpet will only be available online, but it doesn’t require a subscription. Instead, the pre-show will be broadcast live on the CBS Twitter and ET Online.
Expect plenty of stars from the stage and screen to show up at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. “Late Late Show” host James Corden, who is an Emmy and Tony winner, will host for the second time.
Why does CBS tape-delay to the west coast? By 8:00pm PDT, we’ll know all the winners already. So I’ll be DVRing the show and watching later without commercials. Bad for advertisers. I keep hoping that the Tonys will come to their senses and move the show to a network that respects the show and beams it live to all time zones.
Of course, what musical fans really watch the Tonys for is the performances. Expect to see numbers from these Broadway shows:
Listen up, Broadway fans! James Corden is back to honor the best in theater at the 73rd Annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 9.
The three-hour ceremony will take place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and celebrate a slew of Broadway plays and musicals, spanning themes and genres. Before the show airs, discover everything you need to know about the host, performers, nominees and more.
The Tony Awards will air live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The telecast will also be available to live-stream on CBS All Access.
Corden will return as host for the 2019 ceremony. He previously shepherded the 70th Annual Tony Awards in June 2016 and won an Emmy for Outstanding Special Class Program for his performance. The 40-year-old Tony winner said in a statement that he is “thrilled” to reprise his role. “The Broadway community is very dear to my heart, and I’m beyond proud to be part of this incredibly special night,” he added.
