2018 Tony Awards - where and when?

The 2018 Tony Awards will be held in the iconic Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

The ceremony takes place on Sunday June 10 and kicks off at 8pm ET (5pm PT and 1am Monday morning BST).

It’s time for the 72nd edition of the annual Tony Awards, celebrating the very best in theatre from the past 12 months. With a host of celebrity appearances to look forward to – not to mention finding out the winners of this year’s prestigious awards – we’re here to help you live stream the revelry.

The 2018 Tonys will be presented by Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban, but the show could well be stolen by a certain Bruce Springsteen. ‘The Boss’ will be performing live at the extravaganza, giving us a taste of his critically-acclaimed show, Springsteen on Broadway. He’ll also be presented with an already-announced Special Tony Award, as will John Leguizamo for his one-man comedy show, Latin History for Morons.

The rest of the awards remain a mystery, so you’ll have to go down one of the routes below to tune in and find out where the accolades are heading. Live stream the Tony Awards with our guide.
