Sunday, 7:00 PM: The ceremony officially begins. Unless you're one of the lucky few at Radio City Music Hall, we're the only place that you'll get direct live updates of who is winning all of the pre-telecast Creative Arts Tony Awards!

Sunday, 8:00 PM: Our full team kicks into gear to bring you complete coverage. This year we'll be bringing you live tweets from our very own Katie Lynch backstage, plus Richard Ridge will be sitting down with the evening's winners following their acceptance speeches.

We'll also be bringing you live coverage of who's winning, transcriptions of their acceptance speeches, live photos from the best photo team in the business, videos of the winners after they come offstage, special surprises, fashion and more! Plus, join in on the fun by playing our Tony Awards Drinking Game (if you're 21 or older) and mute your commercials to jam along to our Songs of the Season playlist.
