The American Theatre Wing’s 71st Annual Tony Awards will return to a historic venue, Radio City Music Hall, New York in 2017. The awards will air live on Sunday, June 11, 2017, 8:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT, on the CBS Television Network and CBS All Access.

Two-time Academy Award and Tony Award winner Kevin Spacey will serve as host of the 2017 the 71st Annual Tony Awards. Spacey is an American actor, film director, producer, screenwriter, and singer. He began his career as a stage actor during the 1980s before obtaining supporting roles in film and television. He gained critical acclaim in the early 1990s that culminated in his first Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the neo-noir crime thriller The Usual Suspects in 1995, and an Academy Award for Best Actor for midlife crisis-themed drama American Beauty in 1999. In Broadway theatre, Spacey won a Tony Award for his role in Lost in Yonkers. He was the artistic director of the Old Vic theatre in London from 2004 until stepping down in mid-2015. Since 2013, Spacey is in the Netflix drama series House of Cards winning a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Drama and two consecutive Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series.

The Tony Awards, which honors theatre professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway, has been broadcast on CBS since 1978. The Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing and have a longstanding tradition of taking place at Radio City Music Hall. The show was held there every year from 1997 through 2010 – except when the Hall underwent renovations in 1999. The Tonys then returned to Radio City again from 2013 to 2015. The 2017 awards ceremony will mark the 17th time the Tonys have been presented at Radio City – more than any other venue.

On April 24 the Tony Awards announced that the categories of Best Sound Design of a Play and Best Sound Design of a Musical will be reinstated starting in the 2017-2018 season.
