The Tony Awards
The 67th annual Tony Awards will be held on June 9th, 2014 and will be broadcast live on CBS-TV starting at 8 pm. The Tonys, which are formally known as the Antoinette Perry Awards, were created to honor excellence in the American Theatre. The awards are administered by the American Theatre Wing, of which Antoinette Perry was a cofounder. Perry was a well-known actress and director who served the American Theatre Wing as board chair and secretary. In 1946, she died suddenly of a heart attack at the age of 58. The following year the American Theatre Wing honored the high standards Perry set for the American stage by presenting the first Tonys. Today, the Tonys are a major production featuring performances of the best new shows and revivals on Broadway and honoring the finest theatre professionals.
