Does anyone know if they'll be showing the Tonys live in Times Square again this year? I went last year and had an absolute blast, but I'm not seeing any info about it, and I know there's a lot of construction in that area right now. Anyone know?

How is it in the past? I've never been before. Are you able to actually hear/see the broadcast efficiently?

I watched from Times Square in 2012 and the sound was remarkably good. Not too echoey at all.
