You can already prepare yourselves for the Tony Awards next year. Better dressed for the hot weather though for they are airing on June 5th.

The Tony Awards celebrate the best in the Great White Way has to offer every year. For those who cannot not make the trip out to NYC to see live theater, the show has help those Broadway fans live vicariously through the experience without leaving their homes.
The Tony Awards were hosted by Tony Winners Alan Cumming and Kristen Chenoweth, who received rave reviews for their hosting skills. Previous hosts have included Neil Patrick Harris and Hugh Jackman. No host for next year’s show has been announced yet.
Perhaps they’ll go with a newbie in the hosting department (Darren Criss does a good job, hint hint).
