2005 Tony Nominations Will Be Announced on Tuesday May 10th
A quartet of Broadway favorites--Alan Cumming, Lynn Redgrave, Kate Burton and Brian Stokes Mitchell--will read the roster of nominees with TonyAwards.com supplying an audio feed of the announcement.
All four stars have Tony histories, and will be expected back on the boards this year. Cumming, who will play Macheath in the Roundabout's Threepenny Opera this March, won a 1998 Tony for his Emcee in the same company's revival of Cabaret. Redgrave and Burton, who will co-star in the Roundabout's revival of Somerset Maugham's The Constant Wife in May, have 4 nominations between them; Redgrave for Mrs. Warren's Profession and Shakespeare with my Father, and Burton for the 2001 revival of Hedda Gabler and the 2002 revival of The Elephant Man. Stokes Mitchell will star as Emile de Becque in the upcoming Carnegie Hall South Pacific concert in June; he received nominations for Ragtime, King Hedley II and Man of La Mancha and won the 2000 Best Actor in a Musical Tony for Kiss Me, Kate.
The 2005 Tonys will be held, as is customary, at Radio City Music Hall, and CBS will broadcast the ceremony from 8 to 11 PM on Sunday, June 5th. Hugh Jackman, himself a Tony winner, will reprise his last year's duties as host.
Tickets for the 2005 Tonys can be purchased through TonyAwards.com beginning on May 10th at 9 PM.
