Kirshner and Weiss return to produce
The Tony Awards have been skedded for June 10 at Gotham’s Beacon Theater.
Frequent Tony collaborators Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment return to produce the ceremony that will air live on CBS, the net that has broadcast the legit kudofest since 1978.
The American Theater Wing and the Broadway League, the two orgs that present the Tonys, also have locked in the season’s eligibility cutoff for April 26. The final week of April is already packed with last-minute Rialto openings (for shows including “Rebecca,” “Ghost” and “Nice Work if You Can Get It”), with further under-the-wire additions still a possibility.
This is the second year that the Tonys will be held at the Beacon, to which the ceremony shifted last year when Cirque du Soleil took over Radio City Music Hall.
