CBS to Show ‘Tony Awards’ June 9

CBS will air The 73rd Annual Tony Awards, live from Radio City Music Hall in New York, Sunday, June 9. The awards salute the best on Broadway.

The ceremony is presented by Tony Award Productions, which is a joint venture of the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, which founded the Tonys.
