Tony Awards Set 2014 Dates with Ceremony on June 8

Nominations due to be announced April 29

The 2014 Tony Awards season will follow the kudos’ usual annual timeline, setting a June 8 ceremony at Radio City Music Hall following an eligibility cut-off in late April.

The Tony ceremony traditionally takes place on a Sunday in the first couple of weeks of June. Nominations are often announced in late April or within the first few days of May; next year the eligibility deadline is April 24 prior to the nominations announcement April 29.

The Broadway season’s timeline was already expected to fall into place around those dates, with the annual spring pileup of openings finishing, on the current sked, with “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on April 22, “Casa Valentina” on April 23 and “Cabaret” on April 24.

As was the case last spring, the latter half of the 2013-14 season will be crowded with big-name new musicals, including “The Bridges of Madison County” (Feb. 27), “Rocky” (March 13), “Aladdin” (March 20), “If/Then” (March 27) and “Bullets Over Broadway” (April 10).

The current fall lineup, meanwhile, is packed with star-driven play offerings, including “Betrayal,” the Daniel Craig starrer that recently began previews; “Romeo and Juliet” starring Orlando Bloom; and the revival of “The Glass Menagerie” that won rave reviews for a cast that includes Zachary Quinto. Still to open are Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in a Beckett-Pinter double bill, Ethan Hawke in “Macbeth” and Billy Crystal in a reprise of his solo outing “700 Sundays.” (Coming in the spring: Denzel Washington in “A Raisin in the Sun.”)

For the last three years in a row the Tony Awards kudocast has been hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. Any possible return for the emcee might be hampered by the fact that he’ll be toplining the Broadway staging of “Hedwig” at the same time.

Meanwhile, the Tony Awards Administration Committee has already met once this season to issue decisions regarding eligibility questions. The second of four meetings this season is set for Oct. 24.

    Broadway Review: 'Tootsie'
