Tony Awards 2022 Preview

The 75th annual Tony Awards are airing live on Sunday, June 12 starting at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific times on CBS, but the fun actually starts an hour ahead of that on Paramount Plus.

Broadway stars Darren Criss and Julianne Hough are hosting The Tony Awards: Act One exclusively on Paramount Plus where they will kick off the awards ceremony by “bestowing multiple honors and introducing special performances throughout the exciting hour of programming,” according to the CBS press release.

Then starting at 8 p.m. Eastern, Ariana DeBose will host the three-hour CBS extravaganza that honors “theater professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway.” The awards have been broadcast on CBS since 1978.

DeBose won the 2022 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Anita in Steven Spielberg’s 2021 “West Side Story” adaptation. She was also nominated for Tony Award in 2018 for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Disco Donna in “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical,” and she appeared in the original Broadway cast of “Hamilton.”

“We are thrilled to have Ariana DeBose, who has captivated audiences with her inspirational roles on stage and in film and television, host this year’s Tony Awards,” said Jack Sussman, executive vice president of specials, music, live events and alternative programming, CBS in a statement. “After the challenging last two years, there is no one better to bring the theater community together on this important night honoring the best of Broadway and share the joys of live performing once again than this extraordinarily talented artist.”

“I’m coming home! I’m so honored to celebrate 75 years of excellence in theater, but more importantly every member of this community who poured themselves into making sure the lights of Broadway have the opportunity to shine brightly once again! This is a dream come true, and I’m excited to see you all on June 12,” said Ariana DeBose.

“The 75th Tony Awards celebration is a big moment for all of us in the theater community, and in Ariana we have found the perfect host to lead this celebration,” said Heather Hitchens, president and CEO of the American Theatre Wing, and Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League. “We can’t wait to see Ariana take the stage on June 12 and dazzle, inspire and entertain us.”

“There’s a reason Ariana has been nominated and won so many awards … and you’ll see why on June 12 when she is back ‘home’ on a Broadway stage,” said Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss, executive producers for White Cherry Entertainment.

The 75th annual Tony Awards air live on Sunday, June 12 at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific times on CBS.
