Tony Award Eligibility – What we Know So Far

2020 Tony Awards There’s still some debate about which shows will or should be eligible for this year’s prestigious Tony Awards, recognising excellence in New York theatre, which this year will be streamed on-line.

According to the New York Times, only the 18 shows that opened before February 19 2020 can be considered because there wasn’t time to give further productions sufficient adjudication after this date.

To date the following productions WILL be under consideration. Shows with British Theatre connections are in bold.

Broadcast dates for the awards are still to be announced.
