2013 TONY AWARD NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCED FOR "THE 67TH ANNUAL TONY AWARDS®," A THREE-HOUR CEREMONY TO BE BROADCAST LIVE FROM RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL IN NEW YORK CITY, SUNDAY, JUNE 9 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

 

NEW YORK — Nominations in 26 competitive categories for THE 67th ANNUAL TONY AWARDS® were announced today by stage and screen actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Tony Award-winning actress Sutton Foster at the Tony Award Nominations Announcement. The nominees were selected by an independent committee of 24 theater professionals appointed by the Tony Awards Administration Committee. The 2013 Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing. (The list of nominations follows.)

 

THE 67TH ANNUAL TONY AWARDS® will be broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall, Sunday, June 9 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. The awards honor theater professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway. The show returns to Radio City Music Hall after two years at the Beacon Theatre.

 

This year marks the 67th anniversary of the TONY Awards, which were first held on April 6, 1947 at the Waldorf Astoria's Grand Ballroom. The ceremonies are presented by Tony Award Productions, which is a joint venture of The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, which founded the Tonys.

 

The Tonys were founded in memorial to Antoinette ("Tony") Perry, the American Theatre Wing's World War II chairperson. The winners are selected by approximately 830 eligible voters. These include voting members of The Broadway League and the board of directors and designated members of the advisory committee of the American Theatre Wing, along with members of the governing boards of Actors' Equity Association; the Dramatists Guild; SDC, the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society; United Scenic Artists; and the Association of Theatrical Press Agents and Managers. Other eligible voters include members of the Theatrical Council of the Casting Society of America, the New York Drama Critics' Circle, the board/council of the National Association of Talent Representatives, and the Tony Awards Nominating Committee.

 

The June 2011 broadcast of "The 65th Annual Tony Awards" was honored this past year with four Primetime Emmy® Awards: Outstanding Special Class Program, Outstanding Art Direction for Variety or Nonfiction Programming, Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics and Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special.

 

Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment will return as executive producers. Also, Weiss will serve as director for the 14th consecutive year.

    So excited for Billy Magnussen and for The Assembled Parties!

    Cinderella for Best Book? I’ve always thought revivals were ineligible for Best Book?

  • forg

    Tom Hanks!

    @Christian-

    This version of R+H’s Cinderella has all of the classic R+H Music, but an entirely new Book by Douglas Carter Beane that tells the same story, re-imagined.

    There is an eligibility committee that meets 4x during the Theatre season to determine eligibility of shows after they open. For Cinderella they decided that the show, being a pre-existing property and having been presented numerous times, is a revival. However, the book has been rewritten completely by Douglas Carter Beane to be considered eligible as a New Book.
