Broadway News Updates: Tony Awards + Closure Extension

Two key updates were announced this week. Let’s get started, shall we?

The American Theatre Wing has officially announced that Tony Award-winning actor James Monroe Iglehart will be revealing this year’s Tony nominations on Thursday, October 15th at 12 pm ET. You can watch the reveal online here. Don’t forget to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat as well. Who are you looking forward to seeing get a nod this year?

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, Broadway theaters have been closed since March. Unfortunately, another closure extension has been announced. The Broadway League has made the decision to extend the suspension of ticket sales through May 30, 2021.

This has been a really trying time for the industry. If you would like to help the arts community, please consider supporting any efforts your favorite artists/students may currently doing or donating to relief funds like those set up by Broadway Cares or The Actors Fund.

Until we meet again, stay safe everyone.
